Tip #5 is a great reminder. You can never be too sure you’ve emptied your fridge all the way. It’s also important to park on a level surface as RV refrigerators can be faked out and even catch fire if they’re left on while tilted.

  1. Mistake I made. Used sections of 2×6 to level my old 24 foot motorhome. One cracked and had a small nail that had been driven into the side of the 2×6. Was lucky to see the nail just in time to avoid damaging a 200 dollar tire. Could have created a real problem as we were camping in a remote location.

    Also be respectful of other campers. I parked the van on the back of the rv pad. The next day I realized it was blocking the neighbors otherwise breathtaking view of the sunrise. Pulling the van forward 30 feet opened up the view from their campfire and picnic table area.
