    The Best Tips to Remember this RV Season

    It has been a rough winter to say the least but warmer weather is on its way, and do you know what that means? It's time to pack up your RV and take a much needed vacation! Here are some of the best kept tips that even veteran RVers forget.

    1. Make a checklist of everything you need to do and take and review it. Keep a copy on your computer or phone in case your hard copy gets lost.
       
    2. If you are renting an RV, be sure to ask if the price of the rental includes a full tank of gas.  Many RV rental companies charge extra for a full tank of gas, so ask for one with just enough to get you to the nearest gas station.
    3. Load only half of what you plan to take.  A lot of times you end up not needing most of what you pack and the extra weight can be costly.
    4. Buy a pair of 2 way radios to help with parking, backing up, keeping track of your kids, etc.  
    5. Pack a power surge protector.  Ample power supply can be hard to come by in the country and you don't want to run the risk of losing any resources you may need.
    6. Avoid using antibacterial soaps in your sinks.  They deplete the useful bacteria that eliminates the odor in your gray water tank, causing some nasty smells to come from your sinks.  
    7. Use bungee cords to secure your awnings if you have them.  One big gust of wind while traveling down the highway can turn your awning into a parachute.
    8. Always pack a fully supplied first aid kit, for obvious reasons.
    9. Check all components of your RV before you hit the road- tires, brakes, lights, exhaust, etc.
    10. Do NOT compromise on your comforts while traveling.  This could include your favorite music, favorite lawn chairs, pictures of family, your favorite pair of slippers, etc.  If you are traveling for long periods of time, these are the things you'll miss the most.
