Road Trip Tips Continued
Invest in Entertainment
Keeping your passengers entertained is key to staying sane during a long trip, especially if you’re bringing children with you. Your RV might have a mounted television that can play movies while you drive, and you might even be able to connect a gaming console if you have the right equipment. If you want to increase your entertainment options even further, then get in touch with MobileTech RV Repair to learn more about RV satellite installations!
Take Precautions Against Drowsiness
As we discussed in our previous post, you should always pull over and rest if you start feeling drowsy. While we recommend pulling over or stopping at a hotel to get a good night’s sleep as you make your way to your destination, we understand that late-night driving may be unavoidable. If you have to drive through the night, drink a caffeinated beverage and find something to keep you from drifting off while you drive. Whether it’s your favorite podcast, music, or talking with someone in the passenger’s seat, find something that can keep you engaged throughout the night.
Plan Fuel Stops
This point sounds elementary, but it’s one of the easiest things to overlook when you’re excited to reach your destination. Running out of fuel on the road will considerably slow you down, and it can also damage your RV. You don’t want to spend time on the side of the road and then have to invest in RV repairs while you’re on vacation, so plan on fueling up whenever the tank is three-quarters empty.
While the majority of big-city retailers accept cards, many locations on major highways will only accept cash. Moreover, you can never anticipate when you’ll run into an unexpected toll or have to pay for a parking pass, and having cash can prevent you from having to track down an overpriced ATM.
