    How to Navigate Your RV Through a Summer Storm

    Last updated 5 days ago

    During the summer, lighting storms and other hazardous weather conditions can appear seemingly out of the blue. If your RV is caught in a summer storm, safe RV driving techniques will keep you, your passengers, and your RV safe.

    Under high winds, drive at the lowest legal speed and stick to the right hand lane. By driving slowly, you will be less likely to get blown off the road by a strong gust of wind. If you encounter a flooded road, do not attempt to drive through deep water. During a lightning storm, navigate to the side of the road and turn off all of the electricity in your RV. If dust, rain, or clouds make it impossible for you to see the road, be sure to pull over until the storm passes.

    At Motor Sportsland, we can provide you with an RV for your adventures this summer. From beautiful new RVs and trailers to pristine used RVs, we have an extensive inventory of models that offer a safe and comfortable driving experience.

    Preparing Your RV for Sudden Weather Changes

    Last updated 9 days ago

    When you are traveling in your RV this summer, you will have many sunny and beautiful days out on the road. However, no matter what the season of your travel, you should always be prepared for hazardous road conditions. High winds, heavy rains, and thunderstorms are all weather risks during the peak summer RV season. Here’s how to prepare your RV for sudden weather changes:

    Invest in a Weather Radio Receiver

    To best prepare for hazardous weather, you should always be aware of changing weather patterns. A battery or A/C powered weather radio receiver will keep you informed about the weather conditions every day and will allow you to pick up emergency weather broadcasts in the event of an emergency. By knowing ahead of time if the weather is going to turn south, you will be able to make an emergency plan or get off of the road if necessary.

    Have A Plan

    Before you head out on the road, make sure that you and your passengers have an emergency weather plan. If you do encounter severe weather conditions, such as lighting or flash floods, everyone should know how to secure the RV and remain safe. In addition, be sure that you carry an emergency preparedness kit that includes a first aid kit, flashlights, and extra drinking water.

    Perform Essential Maintenance Procedures

    To keep safe while driving in extreme weather, you should make sure that you regularly perform essential maintenance and safety procedures for your RV. Before you head out on the road, make sure that your brakes are working, your tires are in good condition, and that your generator and propane tanks are charged. By keeping your RV in great condition, you will be able to safely navigate through foul weather.

    At Motor Sportsland, we offer a fantastic range of new and used RVs that are fully equipped to handle any driving condition; rain or shine. To get behind the wheel of a new RV today, contact our Salt Lake City RV dealership by calling (888) 734-5606. 

    RV Driving Tips: How to Avoid Accidents

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Driving an RV can seem like an intimidating experience for a first time RVer, but any experienced driver should have no problem safely navigating an RV.  The key to safe RV driving is knowing the size of your RV and being aware of your surroundings.

    Most first time RVers make the mistake of forgetting either the height, width or length of the RV they are driving.  This makes it easy to run into signs and hit other objects.

    Two of keys to RVing are to know the "Tail Swing" and "Pivot Points" of your RV.  The tail swing is how far the back end of the RV swings out when making a turn.  The pivot point is the point in which you can begin making a turn without running over anything with the rear wheel.  The pivot point is located at the center of the rear wheel.  Below is a useful video created by RV Education 101 demonstrating these 2 aspects of RVing to help you better understand.

    At Motor Sportsland, we carry an extensive inventory of new and used RVs that will be perfect for your next trip or family outing. As the premier RV dealership in Utah, we are sure to have an RV that meets all of your travelling requirements.
