· Fire extinguisher – According to the NSC again – the third issue in homes are fires, flames, and smoke. Because our RVs suffer earthquakes with every move, little things can jar loose which can contribute to fires. Make sure you can put them out.
· Detectors – Also on the top five list for preventable injuries is mechanical suffocation. We sometimes need to operate generators or heaters in our RVs. It is very important we have detectors in place to monitor the gases and fumes from these items.
· Tire Pressure monitoring system – One thing our RVs have most homes don’t are our tires. Apply a monitoring set up to your tires so you know when they are getting low. Before we got our TPMS, we actually drove about 20 miles in our fifth wheel before we even knew a tire had blown out. We heard nothing but another RVer told us we had a completely missing tire!
Sometimes we get so busy in life that working on being safe goes to the bottom of the list. But all the other areas of our life are saturated with unrest, concern and even fear when we don’t address the central issues of staying safe. So, take a little time to put some of these in practice or at least move them up on your list of things to do.
