Are you an insurance claim waiting to happen?
Camping season is nearly here and that means lots of folks are driving RVs and towing trailers. MBA insurance, a leading RV rental insurance company, says the five most common insurance claims for RVs include hitting concrete islands at gas pumps, hitting obstacles when making right turns, hitting overhead obstructions, backing the RV into something, and side swipe damage to the RV. Watch out, and don’t become a statistic. —Mark Polk

MORE QUICK TIPS
Where’s that dratted awning pull loop?
Time to open your awning? Sometimes finding the awning pull loop at the end of the strap can be difficult. Get a large, colorful carabiner like those used by climbers and sailors. The “snap lock” hardware makes it easier to find the end of the strap, and you can grab it with your awning hook. Find them at outdoor stores, hardware stores, even ship chandleries. (Or, hey, how about at Amazon.com?)
