Rv Safety and Maintenance

RVs serve as homes to many families. Protecting your belongings and loved ones is probably at the top of your priority list. There are options to help keep you protected. The Select Insurance Agency in Coppell, TX can answer any questions you have about coverage.

Self Reliance

Make sure that your RV is in good working order. Keeping everything clean and all of the moving parts well maintained will help you to save money in the long run. Also, always have ample food, water, gas, and firewood.

Owning and operating an RV is similar to a motor vehicle, but there are differences to keep in mind in order to be safe. For example, RVs use air brakes, not hydraulic brakes, and the driver might experience a slight delay. Take it easy on the brakes and stay on top of any maintenance that needs to happen. This is a part that should be checked every 6 months to make sure everything is okay and to prevent any expensive repairs.

As well as being a moving vehicle, the RV has the added bonus of being a home. Home repairs that should be regularly maintained include roof maintenance. Prevent leaks and make sure all of the seals are tight. Be sure to clear it of any leaves or accumulated debris or snow. Putting a tarp over the top of your roof while it is raining will help.

Keeping It Safe on the Road in Texas

Most of us live busy lives. During our commutes between home, work, and other destinations, we occasionally have distractions. Some of these occur as part of the drive, such as construction detours that require extra vigilance. Other distractions include the buzzing, ringing, and vibrating of mobile phones and similar devices. 

As your neighbors, the agents and team at The Select Insurance Agency want to inform you of new legislation that has an important impact on those who text while driving: The Alex Brown Memorial Act.

Drivers in and around Coppell, TX should become aware of this statewide law that took effect on September 1, 2017. The Alex Brown Memorial Act prohibits anyone operating a motor vehicle in the Texas from using mobile phones, smartphones, or similar devices to send or receive texts while behind the wheel. Texting and using apps while driving have caused many accidents. This legislation hopes to curb the practice of texting while driving by making it a primary offense. Under this act, a law enforcement officer may pull over any driver who is caught reading or sending text messages. 

If you are on the road and receive a text message, find a safe location where you can park your vehicle and review the message while your vehicle is not in motion. Whether you are expecting a text or receive one that you did not anticipate, the law requires that drivers read or respond to messages while off the road.

The Select Insurance Agency encourages drivers in Coppell, TX and throughout the Lone Star State to learn about this important legislation. Getting caught driving while texting may have an adverse effect on a person’s driving record and insurance rates.
