Important Tips From the RV Manual

We recently bought an older Holiday Rambler and I have run across some important tips in the manual that I think we could all benefit from:

- "Left Turns: Do not start the turn until the center of the intersection is reached with your hips."

- "The Night Mode on the rear view camera should be used for night viewing and driving through tunnels."

- "The backing up process should begin while the motorhome is in forward motion."

I'm really glad I'm reading the manual because these things never would have occurred to me!

By properly positioning the MH while pulling forward it will make the backing process easier.

Reads like a Fortune cookie lol Even more true pulling a trailer, to position tow vehicle hard to wrong angle forward but proper angle to swing it back around earlier.
In a MH to have rear tires in the the proper/better location.
