Practicing maneuvering a recreational vehicle before embarking on a road trip can prevent accidents and help new owners feel more confident.
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus/PRWEB) February 24, 2011
Pedata RV Center urges new recreational vehicle owners to practice prior to their first road trip. In most cases driving the recreational vehicle is similar to driving a normal car. New drivers just have to take a few basics into consideration to accommodate the size of the vehicle.
New recreational vehicle owners should practice driving their RV in areas they are familiar with prior to leaving on their first road trip in order to learn to accommodate the size of their vehicle:
- Adjust all rear view mirrors prior to every departure. You will need to use all of them to safely maneuver your recreational vehicle.
- Always allow more time to break (consider this when entering a busy highway or freeway as well as when changing lanes or merging with traffic).
- When turning take into account the size/length of your vehicle.
- Backing up requires great caution due to the size of your vehicle. Take advantage of all mirrors. It is helpful, if possible, to have a passenger outside the vehicle to direct the vehicle around any obstacles not apparent in the mirrors of the vehicle.
Gerard Pedata of Pedata RV Center said, "Modern recreational vehicles typically have all the conveniences of the 'normal' family car: power steering, automatic transmissions and power brakes. The ease of learning to drive a RV has made them far more accessible."
