Essential RV Safety Tips

Traveling in your RV is a rewarding and fun experience, but you do have to be safe about it. Going on camping trips requires you to take some precautions to ensure the safety of you and your passengers so that you can lower your chances of experiencing an emergency. Here’s what you need to do to follow the best RV safety practices.

Check Before You Go

Whether you’re leaving your house or departing from a campground, you should always take the time to thoroughly look over your RV and towing setup before you go. Make sure that all doors and windows are shut and latched, that your hitch and towing chains are secured, that lights and signals function properly, and that your tires are all aired up and in good condition.

Stay in Touch

When you’re heading out into the wilderness for a few days or a few weeks, you should still keep in contact with the outside world. Leave your travel plans with a trusted friend, neighbor, or family member, and try to check in with a phone call or text every few days. Let your friend know what your schedule is so that they can get in touch with rescue crews if you don’t return on time.

Pack Supplies

In addition to your standard RV gear (cooking supplies, linens, cleaning tools), you’ll also want to have some gear for emergency situations. A hand-crank or battery-operated radio is a must, just in case your phone fails you and you need help. Also, a well-stocked tool kit and a spare tire can help you address minor maintenance issues on the road. You should carry duct tape, rope, fire extinguishers, cold-weather gear, bottled water, additional propane, and a knife or hatchet.
