Nine things to do before you leave the driveway on an RV Trip

| Updated Jun 21, 2023

We are on the road a little over half the year and one thing we've learned in five years of RV travel is to have a pre-trip routine.

So we thought we'd put together a little video that shows the nine things we do before we even leave the driveway on an RV trip. Feel free to add under the comment box below the things you've added to your pre-trip routine, too.

We all can learn from each other as we enjoy the RV life in our different recreational vehicles!

Light check should be #1 on the list. Before leaving the drive way, have one person stand behind, the unit and check that both turn signals work, brake lights, and then running lights. Move to the front and check signals, parking lights and head lights. Then get in and have fun! The number of RVs and pull-behinds that we see without proper lighting is downright scary. Always do a light check!
