RV Tip of the Month February 2015

Tip of the Month

glasses tip feb 2015What RV Drivers NEED to know when ordering glasses . . .

If you’re like me and thousands of others, we all have one thing in common; we wear glasses to make our vision better. Not only that, many of us have dual-vision glasses with reading lenses at the bottom. This is what I have had for many years and thanks to an Optometrist who had experience with commercial drivers, he had recommended that I have the “focal-point” for the reading glasses set so it was at the end of my arm’s length.

What this did was to allow me to sit in the driver’s seat and see the instruments perfectly clear through the bi-focal lenses without moving my head forward; all I had to do was to look down.

Why do I bring this up? Well I recently purchased new glasses and forgot to mention to the Optometrist that I drive large vehicles and need the bi-focal distance to be set out about 36 inches so I can see the dash instruments. It was when I put on the new glasses and could NOT see the dash instruments that I realized what a great tip this is for any large vehicle driver. My new glasses will be here soon.

RVTC Inspection

PRE-TRIP INSPECTION

Once again, I was reminded yesterday of the importance of doing a Pre-Trip Inspection. To review, the Pre-Trip always begins in the engine compartment, checking fluids, belts, hoses and underneath the engine for signs of leaks. Next is the light check, clearance lights, turn signals, hazards, brake lights, backup lights and horn. All was good.

Last but never least, the Safety Check. Starting at the entrance door, making sure the steps retracted, I worked my way around the coach, counter-clockwise, so I was facing possible on-coming traffic. I checked the windshield wipers, made sure the mirrors were secure, the compartment doors were secure and tires had proper inflation.

Guess what I found when I checked the outside dually on the drivers side? The tire had only 22 lbs of pressure! Further examination revealed there were two nails in the tire and there was no way I would have made the 231 mile trip without having the tire go totally flat or even worse, come apart. Never assume everything is OK, always do your checks to make sure that everything REALLY is OK!

What you find may delay you for a few minutes but it’s better to fix a possible problem BEFORE you begin your journey rather than trying to do it on the side of the freeway.
