The RV is one of the ways to travel the country without actually leaving the comfort of your home. Although it’s lighter and more mobile than your home, it’s still your camping companion when you go on a vacation. Like any other situation, certain unexpected situations can happen anytime. Using an RV is not an exemption to this. It may be a flat tire or a leaking water plumbing, anything can happen!

 

To know more on what would be the best way to deal with emergency situations when on the road with an RV, here are some tips.

Pack an Emergency Kit

Since emergencies are unexpected, chances are, you’ll never know what you’ll encounter when on the road. It’s best to keep an emergency kit inside the RV. The emergency kit would include:

  • Clothes
  • RV Tools
  • Battery-operated radio
  • Canned food
  • Bottled Water
  • Flashlight
  • First-aid kit
  • Gas

 

Make sure to have at least some of the items mentioned above in case you get stranded inside the RV. This will keep you alive until help arrives.

Invest in an RV Plan

Before setting off on the road, make sure to invest in a reputable RV Emergency Roadside Assistance Plan. You’ll be glad you’ve spent money on it when you broke down in the middle of the road. The Assistance Plan will help you cover the expenses of towing services and other RV maintenance services when you take your vehicle to the repair shop. This will save you a lot of time and money since repairs on the RV may cost a fortune, depending on how badly damaged the vehicle.

Ready Your Emergency RV Tool Kit

Although there might be a chance that you won’t encounter emergency situations while on the road, there is still a chance for you to encounter them. So when a flat tire happens or something in the RV’s engine is causing a problem, it’s best to bring out your RV Tool Repair Kit. The RV Tool Repair Kit should include:

  • Flashlights
  • Reflectors and reflective vest
  • Jumper cables
  • Basic toolkit
  • Gorilla Tape
  • Batteries
  • Air pump
  • Tow rope

 

Attempting to do repairs for your RV without appropriate tools can be dangerous depending on the situation. At least have those tools mentioned above inside the RV so that it will be easier to check what is causing the problem to your vehicle until help comes.

 

Like in every emergency situation, it’s important to remain calm whenever emergencies happen. Always be alert in these situations since you’re not only responsible for your own life but also the lives of those who are travelling with you. Prevention is still the key to avoiding emergencies while on the road. Always make sure to do a thorough check on your RV before heading out on the road.
