If you own an RV in or around the Miami, FL metroplex, you probably already know that hurricanes aren’t rare in the area. But, whether you’re a longtime resident, new to the area, or just on an extended visit, all of us at the Prestige Insurance Group want you to stay safe and stay prepared.
How to Prepare Your RV for Hurricane Season
1. Create a Hurricane Preparedness Plan
Not all hurricanes necessitate evacuation, so you need to know precisely what you should do whether you’re staying in place, moving to a more sheltered location, or leaving the area.
2. Pay Attention to the Weather and Stay Informed
Even outside the hurricane season, you should pay attention to the weather and stay informed about potential storms. Stay informed of the weather forecasts and alerts for your area. Know the difference between a watch and a warning, and follow the instructions of the authorities, especially if they issue an evacuation.
3. Keep an Emergency Kit and Supplies at the Ready
Stock your RV with essentials such as water, food, medication, a first-aid kit, batteries, a radio, a phone charger, a flashlight, and other essentials. Also, make sure you have a place to keep your important documents dry in case you need them.
4. Do a Safety Check and Thorough Inspection of Your RV
Fill the fuel tank and check the windshield wipers and tires. Make sure your windows and doors have a good seal, and your roof isn’t leaking. Perform any necessary maintenance and repair any damage you can.
5. Know What Your Insurance Will and Won’t Cover
Check your insurance to make sure you’re covered for hurricanes or damages that can come from a hurricane. Even if you know you have hurricane coverage, you still need to know the extent of it. If you’re not sure or need more information, don’t hesitate to contact your insurance agent or company to figure it all out before a hurricane hits.
