Getting Ready for a Trip? Get RV Insurance

If you’re going on an RV trip, you obviously want to pack essentials and inspect the RV. However, you may be overlooking one essential that could end up ruining your trip–insurance. Insurance from 1st American Insurance Agency, serving Longmont, CO and the surrounding area, protects you in the event you get pulled over, and it can prevent your trip from getting ruined as a result of a minor fender bender.

1. Inspect Your RV

Make sure you look over every area of your RV including under the hood. Make sure the engine sounds normal when you rev it and that your tires are holding area properly, just to name a few aspects to check. Always pack jumper cables, a jack and a spare tire.

2. Learn About Your Electrical Load

Always make sure you know how much electric you can run in your RV. You may want to label the amps that each one of your appliances draws to help you develop an understanding of what you can run at one time and how much is too much.

3. Pack Extra Essentials

Pack a box that has essentials in it in case you should happen to get stranded somewhere without a way to get to the store. Always have spare water, food and toilet paper. If it’s cold outside, always have an extra jacket and a blanket. Just in case you should happen to get stranded away from an electrical supply, always have spare flashlights. Make sure you charge your phone every time you have electric going to your RV.

4. Get Insurance

If you don’t already have a recreational vehicle insurance policy, make sure you get one before heading out onto the road. You don’t want to take any risks.
