RV drivers fess up to errors

June 10, 2007|By Los Angeles Times

You see them on the road all summer, but what's really going on inside that RV?

Here are some common mistakes RV drivers make -- by their own admission: pulling away with the steps extended (14 percent), backing into something (8 percent), misjudging overhead or side clearance space (7 percent), improperly connecting taillights (5 percent) and running out of gas (3 percent).

That's what 1,000 RV drivers told an informal online survey conducted by Progressive Group of Insurance Cos. of Mayfield Village, Ohio.

And yes, 2 percent admitted they sometimes left passengers behind: usually a spouse or significant other, rarely Grandma or the family pet.
