If you need more air-flow ventilation through your RV, we recommend power vent fans. Don’t do as this poor fellow did. In a tight parking lot with his 40-footer, he “forgot how much of his trailer there was behind his axles.” Use the arrows on the image to click through to see more.

Well, one thing good. That light post protector proved its worth!
And then along came a long-haul driver…
An RVtravel.com reader also got his rig in a “tight squeeze” at a refueling stop. Robert B. says his family changed rides, buying their first travel trailer after having been Class A motorhomers. On their first trip out, relates Robert, “I turned left between the two gas islands and was shocked to see my trailer hugging the left island, tires up against the curb.” It’s a pickle that many of us can relate to!
Backing up, driving forward … nothing helped. It only made the situation worse. Happily, a long-haul driver stopped in. Following the driver’s advice, they unhitched the trailer from the tow vehicle and, using brute force, the truck driver lifted the trailer tongue off the tow ball and pushed the trailer backwards several feet. After that, the driver hopped in the tow vehicle and maneuvered it off the curb.
