So glad I read this thread. I never unhooked but neither did I consider the unforeseen emergency. And there are 2 listed here and who knows what else could happen. Medical emergency, who knows? That’s why they’re unforeseen. Unhooking from now on as standard procedure. Thanks!


The idea is to leave your RV hitched up, so that you don't waste precious time having to hitch it up during an emergency.

Quickly leaving the area with your RV is infinitely preferable to leaving your RV behind to be destroyed in the fire/flood/whatever.


OK.

What if you are staying two nights? Three? A week?

Assumedly, you never unhitch? The odds of a disaster don't change.

The idea of driving off with your trailer to avoid a tornado or a hailstorm is just comical.

Dood...this whole thread is comical! Many of the responses land somewhere between paranoia and toomuchtimeonyourhandsitis!

That's my point as well, if the location is so risky that you have to plan/prepare to leave in a hurry maybe you need to choose a safer camping location to start with.

Agreed, my over the top counter point of 90 MPH to go to the emergency room was intended as a fun poke at outrunning an extremely rare natural disaster. But of course don't do that because you will kill some other innocents when you could have just dialed 911 [emoticon]
