Always be “Heads-Up” when using your storage compartments. NEVER store anything on the drivers side of your RV that you might need in an emergency! You DO NOT want to be on the side of the road or freeway trying to dig out tools or other emergency equipment with traffic roaring past you. Anything you might need in an emergency should be stored on the passenger side of your RV.
At this time of year, also be aware of the location of your furnace exhausts.
The driver of this RV forgot the furnace can come on in the winter and opened a compartment door that came in direct contact with the exhaust outlet. He was VERY lucky the only damage was paint discoloration; he could have set his RV on fire!
