3 Things to Keep in Mind When Traveling by RV to Homestead-Miami Speedway
#1 Electrical: Although a benefit of traveling by RV is that you have the option to utilize electricity, it is also something to be mindful of. One way to stay ahead of this is by writing down wattage ahead of time for each electronic appliance. This will ensure you are aware of which items can or cannot run at the same time, which will save you from tripping your power or causing a dangerous situation.
#2 Weight: Not only will a heavy RV slow you down and burn through gas, it could cause you to be over the limit when it comes to weigh stations. Be proactive when packing and keep in mind the weight of particular recreational or BBQ items. This could save you a lot of trouble and time down the road.
#3 Food: This is probably the most important aspect of your RV road trip. The key to a great RV vacation is being organized when it comes to your food, so plan out each meal so that you can make breakfast, lunch and dinner without having to run to the store or add to the limited kitchen space your RV has.
