I just returned home from leaving my wife and our 5r in southern Missouri. I wouldn't recommend the campground to anyone but it was all that was available close to here parents. But that's beside the point.
Where she's at is smack dab in the middle of 'Tornado Ally'. The campground is right next to an old Army Air Base, but there is a safe room in a building 50 yds away.
Anyone who's lived thru a tornado know it'll do pretty much what it wants. If a tornado goes thru I know the 5r will be destroyed. Don't care as long as my wife is safe.
What I'm thinking about is the high winds that accompanies but isn't always associated with a tornado.
I cranked the X-chocks down real tight on both sides and instructed her to run the awning and all slides in if she hears the siren or if things don't look right outside before she heads to the safe room.
We talked while I was heading home and she's going to fill the fresh water tank even though she's hooked to city. That'll add a little over 500 lbs down low.
I could have staked the 5r down but the soil is sandy and my experience up here with our winds and commercial spiral stakes, it wouldn't help.
Can anybody suggest anything I didn't think of that maybe she could do? Honestly, basically I'm looking for piece of mind.
