Common RV Problems and How to Avoid Them

One way to help keep your RV insurance rates low is to avoid problems. Take time to learn from the errors of others by reviewing these common RV mistakes.

  1. Gas Leak - RV's can experience accidental fires due to leaking LP gas lines. 
    Solution: Have your LP gas system thoroughly checked by an authorized RV repair facility annually.
  2. Blown Tires - A blown tire might seem like a minor inconvenience, but it can cause an accident that is dangerous to yourself and others. 
    Solution: Make sure your tires are in good condition. Never overload the RV and always maintain proper inflation levels. RV tires also crack very easily. Make sure to check the sidewall of the tires for cracks regularly.
  3. Driving into a bridge, overhang or other clearance problems.
    Solution: Measure your RV including the AC then add an additional foot to the measurement to be on the safe side. Write it down and place it on a visible location especially if you are renting or borrowing an RV for vacation.
