Traveling during the winter months can be especially harrowing whenever you are driving an RV. Here are some safety tips you can use to help avoid a claim against your insurance policy.
1. Equip your vehicle with snow tires if there is even a slight chance you will driving in snowy conditions. Highway tread tires do not provide sufficient traction when traveling on snow and ice.
2. Allow plenty of time to get to where you are going, and be prepared to stop at a rest area overnight if need be.
3. If you do find yourself sliding, steer gently in the opposite direction while pumping your brakes softly. Do not slam on your brakes or make sudden movements with the steering wheel, as this could cause you to lose control of your vehicle.
