Knowing the most common mistakes and having the knowledge to prevent them will keep RV drivers safe and their trip enjoyable.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 06, 2014
Kirkland RV has heard all the stories when it comes to RV accidents and mishaps. Whether it’s been RV drivers who failed to heed the posted clearance signs, to a windy night tipping over a family of RVers, they know that the most common accidents are usually easily avoided. In view of this, they’ve released an article warning RV-lovers on what to avoid in their RV care.
“Forewarned is forearmed,” Kirkland RV says, “Knowing the most common mistakes and having the knowledge to prevent them will keep RV drivers safe and their trip enjoyable.”
The article talks about awnings, as they are the number one repair for RV maintenance and repair companies. Drivers that forget to retract and lock their awning in the evenings, or sometimes before they start driving away, will quickly discover that awnings aren’t designed to withstand high winds.
Kirkland RV also addresses how to avoid RV fires and blowouts, and gives invaluable tips on decreasing wind load. Surprisingly, RV’s are more likely to tip over while parked than while driving. This usually happens when a driver has parked broadside to the wind. Kirkland RV advises drivers to park with the nose to the wind, as this decreases the wind load by half or more, often making the difference between a tipped over RV and a peaceful night’s sleep.
“It’s cheaper to know proper protocol and maintenance than it is to pay for repair services,” Kirkland RV says.
They know that damages to RVs, especially serious damages, can total an RV quickly. Accidents such as fires or lack of clearance can cost more than just the cost of the RV as well—such disasters can harm the travelling family as well. To read the rest of the information, visit their blog.
“Safety first,” the article reminds RV drivers, “Fun after!”
