National Preparedness Month: What to Keep in Your RV in the Event of an Emergency

September is National Preparedness Month, and with the fall RV season just beginning, there’s no better time to make sure your RV is prepared for emergencies. However, you don’t have to buy a bunch of  expensive supplies to ensure your home away from home is prepared for all types of situations you may encounter on the roads. These few, simple items are ones you should always keep inside your motorhome, travel trailer or fifth wheel.

First Aid Kit

The most important preparedness item to include in your RV is a first aid kit. A first aid kit comes in handy when you’re dealing with everything from minor scrapes and bug bites to more serious injuries. The American Red Cross offers a recommended list of items to include in your first aid kit on their website to make building a homemade kit easy and affordable.

Blankets and Sleeping Bags

Whether you’re traveling to Alaska or Florida, it’s important to have your RV stocked with plenty of blankets and sleeping bags for every one of your travelers. Emergencies can happen anywhere along your journey, and you’ll want to be prepared if your RV breaks down or if some of your RV’s features stop working.

Easy-to-Prepare Foods

Traveling in your RV during the fall and winter months means you can run into issues like hurricanes, tropical storms and poor winter driving conditions. This means you may have to stop driving in areas where you weren’t prepared to park. Ensure your RV is always prepared by keeping some easy-to-cook, non-perishable foods in your vehicle. Other ready-to-eat foods like nuts and granola bars are helpful when you don’t have the energy to cook.

Bring Your RV to Leisure Time

Performing preventative maintenance on your RV is one of the best ways to ensure you stay safe on the roads. Bring your home away from home to our certified RV technicians at Leisure Time RV in Oklahoma City before you hit the roads this fall.
