FIRE! Leaking Propane.  Are you safe?

It's been reported over 400 claims are filed each year as a result of fires involving leaking propane gas lines.

 

What can you do?

As part of your annual RV check up have your authorized RV repair facility check the entire LP gas system.  They will check for leaks and ensure the proper pressure is being maintained.

Additionally, there are several leak detectors and leak detector solutions on the market today. Art RV, our resident RV expert and founder of American RV and Marine, tells us when he checks leaks himself he is concerned with four main components-the Fridge, Furnace, Stove and Hot Water Heater.  With the main gas supply on and taking care to not light any pilot or burners, he sprays a simple soapy solution on the fittings and connections inspecting each for any sign of growing bubbles that would form from escaping propane.  He then tightens each identified problem area and repeats the test.   If the leak persists turn the main supply off and contact an authorized repair facility.

While we hope for the best we are here to make sure you are prepared for the worst.  From theft to blowouts to wind storms and "Ooops, I forgot to unhook" we have you covered.  Our partnerships with the industry's leading specialty RV underwriters allow us to offer specialized coverages and exclusive programs to ensure you have the coverage you need when it counts.  For more information or to secure coverage for your RV today call us toll free 800-507-8467.

The Ultimate Road Trip

   

This season, Americans are embarking on all types of journeys, from romantic weekends to outdoor activity focused getaways. In fact, 28 percent of Americans will take a road trip for the Thanksgiving holiday driving an average of 1,117 miles, according to the Hankook Quarterly Gauge Index. But what defines the ultimate road trip? Hear what drivers have to say:

For the romantic:
Long, winding drives through scenic roads are timeless. The Hankook Gauge Index found that the majority of Americans think the most romantic way to get away is to "get in a car or an RV and keep driving," followed by taking a scenic train ride, and flying far away in an airplane.
  

For the sports fanatic: It is football and hockey season, after all. What better way to celebrate these sports in all of their glory than taking a road trip to catch a game and tailgating in the parking lot? Better yet, stay fit and enjoy the outdoors by hitting the road for the ski slopes.

For the adrenaline junky: There's nothing quite like zooming around in a sleek, sporty vehicle to get the heart pumping faster. According to the Gauge Index, race cars offer the "ultimate thrill ride," compared to white water rafting, roller coasters and zip lining. For the racing junkies, many professional motorsports series run through the end of November. Take a trip to catch all the racing action in-person.

Whether you're planning an epic excursion or taking in the scenic roads with someone special, before cruising away you'll want to keep in mind these Hankook Tire driving tips:

Check your tire pressure: With frequent weather and temperature changes, air in tires can expand and contract, causing them to lose air pressure. Make sure your tires are properly inflated and have plenty of tread.
Plan ahead for wet conditions: Rainfall, snow and other undesirable driving conditions can decrease visibility and cause hydroplaning. Make sure your windshield wipers are in good working condition. If driving on a road with water or ice, slow down and avoid sudden movements with the steering wheel or brake pedal. If you feel like you're floating, a possible indication of lost traction, gently release the accelerator pedal until you feel the tires make contact with the road surface.
Stock up and be prepared: Extreme weather can cause you to go through lots of windshield washer fluid to ensure you can see ahead of you. Check to make sure all of your vehicle's fluid levels are full with engine coolant and oil, brake fluid and no-freeze windshield wash. You should also check to make sure you have a spare tire, ice scraper, booster cables and a flashlight stored in your trunk.
Don't overload your RV: Check the tire load carrying capacity indicated on the tire or vehicle owner's manual for the maximum-recommended load. When replacing tires, the speed rating and load index of the replacement tires must be equal to or greater than that of the tire being replaced to maintain the speed capability and weight carrying capacity.

KOA will have a Deluxe Cabin and teepee on display for attendees to tour along with staff on hand to answer questions and help make reservations. Also, for the first time, a 24-foot Bowlus Road Chief trailer will be on display. This $100,000 aluminum designed trailer is a complete remake of the 1935 Hawley Bowlus trailers that were made after Hawley Bowlus completed the Spirit of St. Louis airplane.The grand campground entrance is designed to excite attendees about RV travel and camping before moving into the main exhibition areas."  Read more...
