Avoid any delays and unexpected problems when you take your RV or motorhome out for what should be a relaxing trip.
Follow some of our suggestions below, and consider investing in some maintenance and safety classes to help ensure happy travels across Tennessee and beyond.
Take Care of Your Tires
Weigh Your RV and Tow Vehicle
To know if weight is properly distributed and that you are within legal weight, find a certified platform scale in Tennessee and get weighed. Have the vehicle fully loaded with passengers, cargo, fuel, personal belongings, fresh water and propane tanks to get an accurate weight.
Understand Propane and Gas Systems
Have the propane and gas systems inspected every spring for leaks and proper appliance operating pressure before you head out on vacation. Be sure you know how your RV alerts you to leaks, and know what to do if one occurs.
Here are some easy things to do if you smell gas/propane:
Use the Onboard Generator Sparingly
The onboard generator gives you extra power when there's no shore power available, but be wary of carbon monoxide.
