Get prepared, pack it up and ...
Like everyone said, leave the area until it passes.
RVs are big walls, they will not behave nicely in a hurricane.
Stay safe.

Hurricane preparedness

Well, it's going to be a non-event for this one. Downgraded as the mountains of Hispanola and wind shear tore it apart. No hurricaine, no longer even a tropical storm, just a low pressure area With a lot of rain and little wind.

No Worries.

Depending on the category storm would evacuation come into play. We don't have the roads to support a mass evacuation. Anyway, I'd worry about flooding, and making sure it's not under or close to trees. We rode out many storms after trying to head to Alabama some years back. Was stuck on I-10 for 13 hours.

Some good advise, some ..... We keep the tanks full. propane and fuel, water just before heading out of harms way. As for going to another state that's silly. You need to get back as ASAP to insure that your home is secured and make any and all attempts to correct anything that you are able to fix so no further damage occurs. Many insurance companies have a clause that makes the owner responsible for taking proper precautions. Been through Hurricane Charley, Frances, Gene and Ivan. Far more tropical storms in between. Keep the windshield in the opposite direction of the wind so nothing can break it.

Obviously, you dodged a bullet by the graces of mother nature, the hurricane never developed! We floridians have been most fortunate since Wilma visited us some ten years ago. If the warning seems serious and the chance is good a hurricane will bear down on us I am taking MY motorhome and leaving! That said, once my daughter was visiting and staying in a time share, they bussed everyone to Orlando to avoid a hurricane. She came to my home in Ft. Lauderdale and guess where the hurricane landed... yep, ORLANDO so who knows what the future holds.

Like everyone says - "Road Trip". There is nothing to be gained by staying except risking the MH and your lives. If the house takes a beating - nothing you can do while there.
