Dealers Warning RV Owners About Safety Precautions

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- With kids now getting out of school for the summer many families will likely head out on trips in their RV or camper.

However, if this is your first time taking it out this summer you might want to check up on a few things first.

One of the major ones is to check for any gas leaks from your stove or for any broken electrical wires.

RV dealers say in addition to the precautions inside the cabin to make sure and check the brakes on the RV as well.

They say simple precautions will help keep your summer trip as safe as possible.

"We have such great places around here to go to that are close that don't cost as much to go... I mean, it's just a great way to just get out and do things as a family and have a lot of fun," said Carolyn Gefre at Aubrey's RV Center.

Dealers say it's also a good idea to install smoke and monoxide alarms in the RV in case there are problems inside the cabin.
