Stay Safe This Summer With These Health and Safety Tips

RVConnections_StaySafe

Summer is a time for outdoor adventures, road trips and beach days, but all of that hot weather, those pesky outdoor bugs and the strong summer sun can put a damper on your fun. Keep yourself and your family safe and healthy this summer by following these simple summer safety tips.

Prevent Heat Illness

Many parts of the country get unbearably hot throughout the summer; it’s important to know how to recognize the signs of heat illness and how to prevent heat illness entirely. Always stay cool and hydrated, listen to your body and never leave anyone (including pets) inside closed, parked vehicles.

Grill Safely

A big part of the RV lifestyle is grilling food with friends on those long summer days. It’s important to keep food safety in mind whenever you’re grilling, which includes keeping food and drinks in separate coolers, washing your hands with hot water and soap after touching raw foods and always using clean cooking and serving utensils.

Protect Your Skin

Always protect your skin and eyes from the sun with UVA/UVB protective clothing, sunglasses and hats. And plan your outdoor activities before 11 a.m. and after 4 p.m. whenever possible, because the sun’s rays are weakest at such times. If you must be outside during those hours, be sure to stay hydrated and cover your body with loose-fitting cotton clothing.

Keep Bugs at Bay

Days spent at the campground are often followed by pesky bugs biting at night. Always use bug sprays that contain DEET, because they keep mosquitos, ticks and a variety of other harmful, disease-carrying insects away.

Swim and Play Safely

Playing in lakes, rivers and the ocean are some of the best times summer has to offer, but it’s important to use caution whenever you our your family members are swimming. Choose pools, beaches and lakes that have lifeguards on duty whenever possible.

Keep Your RV Safe Too

Performing the proper service and maintenance on your RV is the best way to prolong its lifetime. Here at RV Connections, we make RV repairs and maintenance easy, stress-free and affordable, so you don’t have to dread dropping your recreational vehicle off with us. The following are a few of the service specials we’re offering right now to help you start the summer RV season in the right direction.

Roof Preventative Maintenance

Many RV travelers forget about roof maintenance, because they don’t see the roof of their RV as much as they see the interior. Most RV manufacturers recommend roof treatments twice a year. We’re offering roof preventative maintenance for your RV here at RV Connections for $247.50. Taking this small step to maintain your RV can save you big bucks in the long run.

45 Point Inspection

Letting our RV experts inspect your coach from top to bottom is one of the top steps you can take to ensure your coach remains reliable on the roads. The 45-point inspection includes an in-depth analysis of your vehicle that’s intended to prevent expensive repairs. A 45-point inspection, for just $198, can save you big bucks while providing piece of mind on your travels.

The Seasonal Maintenance Package

Before the summer RV season begins, you’ll want to make sure your RV is ready inside and out. The Seasonal Maintenance Package includes an LP inspection, water heater service, refrigerator service, battery check, air conditioner service and an exterior inspection. This package eliminates the chance of arriving at the campground to discover your air conditioner has stopped working in the winter months.

Complete Roof Reseal

A leaky roof can cause huge problems inside your RV, but here at RV Connections, a leaky roof is easy to fix. Our complete roof reseals range from $199.98 to $495, and they effectively prevent water leaks and sealant erosion. Your RV is a big investment, and roof reseals help you protect it.
