You’re rolling down the open road in your rig. With about an hour left, you hear a loud bang and can feel a bump as you’re driving along. You immediately know what happened. You’ve got a flat tire.
You know how to maintain your rig while you’re off the road, but what should you do when your RV has a mishap while you’re traveling? We hope an RV breakdown never happens to you, but sometimes even with proper maintenance and care you might find yourself pulled over on the side of the road with your hazard lights on.
Here are our tips to safely taking care of your RV if you ever find yourself in an emergency maintenance situation.
Get off the road safely
When you’re on the road, the very last thing you want is to breakdown and have to pull over. No matter what type of issue you are dealing with, situations like this can be stressful.
Pulling over on the shoulder is a good way to quickly get out of the way, but an even safer option would be to exit the interstate and get on a road with less traffic.
Now that you’ve pulled over, grab a piece of paper or your phone and take notes on what exactly happened- were there any warning lights on the dash board? What sounds did it make? Were there any smells? These aspects are important later when determining what the problem is.
