Making Way for Mother Nature
Make a list of personal records and information to take with you in the RV for disaster situations that may cause severe or major damage to your home or community. Important papers include driver licenses, passports, social security cards, and appropriate immigration documents. Finally, don't forget check books, debit/ATM cards, credit cards, billing information and addresses, envelopes and postage, and savings and investment account statements and contacts.
Keep your RV service up to date and ready for use in case of the need to evacuate or to use it in case of loss of utilities. This means having the fuel, propane, and water tanks full, the holding tanks empty, and all fluid levels and at the correct level. It is also important to have the correct tire pressure in all RV tires, as well as the tires on the toad or tow vehicle.
Know Where to Find Safety
We strongly recommend that you select an evacuation destination, lay out a trip itinerary, and make reservations at the appropriate RV resort or campground before you leave.
Look for campgrounds and RV resorts that have cable TV so you can view the Weather Channel and get the news stations in the event you cannot get an on–the–air TV or satellite TV antenna signal. Traveling with portable GPS units, NOAA weather radios, and mobile wireless phones (and chargers) will help keep you advised as to what is happening.
An Internet–ready laptop computer lets you keep current with your financial and investment activities at home will work very well on the road and in the RV to keep up with electronic banking and bill pay services, investment account services, and E–mail to keep in touch with your family, friends, and work.
Using debit/ATM cards allows you to avoid carrying large amounts of cash. We recommend setting up automatic deposit of incoming checks. Some banks, such as USAA Federal Savings Bank, allow you to deposit checks via Internet with a computer, scanner, and Internet connection.
