- Before hooking up your water hose, let the water run for a few seconds. That will help wash out any insects or any other debris.
- Carry a can of disinfectant to spray the water connection on your rig as well as the water supply to prevent contamination of your water lines.
- Establish a routine that you use to set up and tear down and follow this routine every time. This helps to prevent any costly mistakes like leaving up your TV antenna.
- Plan out your trips in advance. While it is easy to just jump in the RV and take off now that we have GPSes, they don't always take you appropriate routes for an RV and they don't always take you to your exact end destination. Planning in advance can help keep you from being in a difficult situation.
- Inspect your rig before every trip and during each stop. Traveling with a RV is a big responsibility and ensuring that your equipment is operating properly will help keep you and other travelers safe.
- Limit your speed to 65 MPH. You will find that you get your best fuel economy and reduce the wear and tear on your equipment by traveling at this slower speed.
