Before you get on the road this summer, make sure that you know how to keep your family safe while traveling in your RV.
Know Stopping and Turning Distance:
Often drivers fail to correctly stop or turn. RVs need more distance to brake and width to turn.
Inflate and Check Tires:
Due to wear, unbalanced weight, and other factors tires can fail. RV might sit for a while so look for tire damage to avoid blowouts and make sure tires are properly inflated.
Balance the Load:
Pack evenly and avoid overloading one section. Unbalanced RV cause sudden blowouts, breakdowns and restrict braking and steering.
Be sure to find the highest point of the RV and plan your route so you don’t get stuck in overpasses, bridges, or tunnels and cause roof damage.
Share the Driving:
Driving long distances can cause fatigue. Have a driving buddy or take a break when you get drowsy. Always wear your seat belt and text and drive.
