RV Road Trip Setting Up Camp

There is a first time for everything which means all RVers started their journey at one point. Just like any motor vehicle, there is a lot to keep in mind when investing/owning an RV. It’s beneficial to know how to encounter and go about an RV road trip. What are the steps you should take? What kinds of tools are important? The following points will allow you to be aware of what to expect on your first RV road trip.

Upon Arrival…

If you’re new to the RV lifestyle, you’ll notice that every RV park offers different sites and services. Figure out if your site can arrange an escort service to assist you in situating your RV. If you are satisfied with your rig space, be sure to disconnect any towed vehicles from your RV. Also, avoid any obstacles that may interfere with the capabilities of your RV. Particularly, potholes, road bumps, slopes, plants, or low hanging branches. Some RVs provide slide-outs or awning features. Make sure there is enough space for both features to operate properly throughout your RV road trip. It is especially important to know where the electrical and sewer hookups are located on your RV. And park your vehicle so that each hookup will meet with those of the site.

Settle Your Space

Once you park and situate your RV, it’s time to settle your space. If you are driving a motorhome, start off by putting your vehicle on the parking brake then chock the wheels. Slideouts will not function without this precaution. You can then connect power to your RV. Plug the electrical shore power cord into the campsite receptacle that matches the amperage requirements of your RV. Avoid the use of extension cords and resort to an electrical adapter. Overall, follow up by making sure your electricity is functioning. Particular RVs come with manual or electronic entry steps that can be pulled out for use. Be sure to pull in the steps before returning to your RV road trip.

Generate Water Supply

Use a potable RV water hose when connecting your RV to the water supply. Attach one end of it to the tank on the side of your RV and the other end to the campground’s water supply. If your campground does not provide water supply, invest in a water pump. As for sewer, wear gloves to attach the hose to a drain outlet. Ensure that you seal your connection securely. Invest in a sewer support system. This will allow for a smoother drainage process. To save LPG, set your heater to electric mode and assure that your heater tank is full of water.
