Many of the accidents that happen with RVs are preventable
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) May 31, 2010
Millions of Americans own RVs and will be heading out on the road for summer adventures. While many vacationers are sticking closer to home, it’s still important to be sure that all new and used RVs heading out on the road can provide the safest vacation possible. Beaudry RV Company recommends the following safety tips for a healthy and happy summer’s worth of travel:
- Have all the basic systems of new and used RVs checked out by a mechanic.
- Be sure oil is changed and full. Check windshield wiper fluids. Have brakes checked.
- Be sure to have a spare tire.
- Have headlights, turn signals and brake lights checked.
- Check the interior for mold.
- Insects and animals may have made nests from ants to spiders to small critters.
- Have the propane checked leading to the refrigerator. Hundreds of fires behind the refrigerator are reported every year.
- Install a carbon monoxide detector. If there is one installed, be sure it is working.
- Check for cracks in the roof. Used RVs may be weather worn and may need some repairs to prevent leaks.
- Don’t overload RVs. Extra weight can wear on tires and cause blowouts. Check your Cargo Carrying Capacity to make sure you stay within guidelines.
“Many of the accidents that happen with RVs are preventable,” says Scott Beaudry of Beaudry RV Company. “A little precaution and preparation before RV enthusiasts hit the road can ensure a fun and memorable RV vacation.”
