What to Know Before You Hit the Road in Your RV

Summer is here! Which means it’s time to hit the road and explore new sites. If you’re planning on taking your first RV trip, here are some things to keep in mind:

Practice. An RV will not maneuver like a car. It’s best to practice driving and parking before heading out for your first big trip.

Service your RV. You’ll want everything in top notch condition (waste water system, brakes, tire pressure, batteries, lights, etc.) before you go.

Stock up your RV. It’s always a good idea to carry a tool kit and emergency kit if planning to travel in a remote area, and you’ll want to hit the grocery store to buy your essentials such as paper towels, toilet paper, sunscreen, bug spray, food, etc. to last a good duration of your trip.

Sleep. Make sure to get a good night’s sleep before your trip. According to sleep experts, it is important to actually get at least two consecutive nights of 7-8 hours of sleep before you begin your drive. This way you can avoid any drowsy driving.

Map out where you’ll stay. Whether you plan to rough it, or would like to feel more at home being hooked up to electricity, water, sewage and cable, you’ll want to research ahead of time. You’ll need a reservation at some RV parks.

Think about bringing along your car. If you’re planning to spend a significant amount of time at your destination, it may help to have a car. Having to park somewhere in your RV every time you leave the RV park can be a challenge.

Protect your RV and belongings with the T3. With a T3 you can check on the location of your RV or status any time you wish. If there happens to be an unauthorized movement, or a factory installed alarm is activated, the T3 will alert you via a text message that will show the GPS location of the RV, the speed it is traveling, and the direction it’s going. You can then easily connect to a 911 operator closest to the RV to report the theft and get immediate help. No call center is used, saving time and money.  The T3 is the only anti-theft device with these capabilities. You can also easily transfer the T3 to another vehicle as well.

Have a great trip!

TECH TIP: The T3 owner sets their phone number in the T3 memory and T3 always sends notifications to the owner’s phone.  T3 will only answer calls from the owner’s phone and from the owner’s authorized emergency contacts.
