As for the new RVcamping season one very important aspect to keep in mind is RV safety. Safety is paramount when it comes to using and enjoying our RV’s. From pre-trip inspections to setting up and actually using the RV there is always an element of RV safety involved.
As a new year’s gift from RV Education 101 to you we would like to offer you a FREE RV Safety E-course. If you are not familiar with what E-learning, or an E-course is, it is simply a form of electronically supported learning and teaching. It is using a computer, and today’s technology, to transfer skills and knowledge online.
This free RV Safety E-course is not only intended to help educate you on how to safely use and enjoy your RV, but it helps us introduce you to our brand new RV consumer site at
Here is how the FREE RV Safety E-course works:

Just fill out the information and you will be directed to an area where you set-up your user name and password. The UN and Password are what gives you access to the training material.
That’s it! It’s that simple. Now you can watch the “RV Safety Matters” online E-course and start getting prepared for another great year of camping in your RV.
Here are a few RV safety reminders and tips:
Fire Safety Tips:
  • Get everybody out of the RV and away from the fire safely.
  • Have somebody call 911 for help.
  • Most importantly, do not risk your personal safety. If you cannot extinguish the fire in the first minute or so let the professionals handle it.
  • Remember PASS. This is an easy way to remember how to use a fire extinguisher, especially during an emergency. PASS stands for Pull, Aim, Squeeze and Sweep.
  • RV’s come equipped with a smoke alarm. In less than 30 seconds a small flame can turn into a major fire & within a minute the RV can be filled completely with smoke. A smoke alarm can save lives. You may want to install additional smoke alarms in your RV.
  • Test smoke alarms monthly & before each trip.
  • Replace the battery in smoke alarms twice a year when you change your clocks for daylight savings time.
  • Instruct everybody in the RV on an emergency escape plan in the event of a fire.
Carbon Monoxide Safety Tips:
  • Inspect the generator exhaust system before using the generator, every time.
  • Avoid leaving windows down and roof vents open when in close proximity to vehicle and/or generator exhaust.
  • Follow all directions and safety cautions and warnings when operating gas powered heaters.
  • If you use a portable generator direct the exhaust away from the camping area.
  • Never use the range burners or oven to heat the RV!
  • When cooking with the range burners use the range fan & always leave a window cracked open for fresh air and ventilation.
  • If your RV does not have a Carbon Monoxide detector purchase a battery operated model designed for use in Recreation Vehicles.
Emergency Escape Safety Tips:
  • Time is your biggest enemy if there is a fire. It only takes one minute for smoke to fill the RV.
  • Design an escape plan specific to the needs of the individuals in the RV.
  • Sketch your plan on paper and indicate which windows and doors can be used to escape. Review the plan with everybody.
  • Make sure everybody knows where the emergency escape window is located and how to use it.
  • Make sure everybody knows how to use window and door latches before there is an emergency.
  • Practice your escape plan so everybody is familiar with how to get out of the RV in case of an emergency.
  • Designate a meeting place outside where everybody will meet.
Have a great 2011 and please take a minute you visit our nes site at
