Tips For Handing A Diesel Motor Home
There are many reasons why you might think of investing in a Class A diesel motor home. Be it the quality of construction or the availability of space, premium amenities or the storage capacity, these over 40-feet vehicles have everything to give you a five-star experience on the road. Besides, these luxurious coaches come with the added benefits of a powerful diesel engine. No wonder, when it comes to purchasing a home-on-wheel, many travel enthusiasts opt for this variety. Even if they cannot afford a brand-new unit, they often purchase a used diesel motor home. But they never settle on a new unit of an inferior category (Class B or C which are usually powered by gasoline).
If you are on your way to buy your first diesel unit, you should keep one point in mind - you may need to improve your driving skills to be able to safely maneuver it. Even if you have driven a smaller RV in the past, you`ll have to practice a little before embarking on a trip in this giant rig. You should develop a razor-sharp reflex. For that, you must learn how to use mirrors, cameras, and even windows to keep track of the traffic that shares the road with you, http://shorl.com/loluhatypeme especially in the blind spots. Here are three things to keep in mind:
Road Rules
The bigger a vehicle, the harder it is to maneuver. So, larger vehicles enjoy the right-of-way in almost all situations. Well, theoretically. When you are actually in front of a smaller car, you should wait for it to get out of your way, regardless of how much it honks or yells. Tolerating impropriety of a stranger is only a small price you pay for your safety. Isn`t it? Don`t ever put your rig on the reverse or try to pull off the road for the convenience of these tiny tots. They are easy to maneuver, and their drivers will eventually move out of your way.
Space Constraint
What is the most important thing that makes driving a Class A motorhome so special? Its size. That you are dealing with a huge moving machine becomes most apparent when you try to make your way through narrow one-way streets, especially parking lots. You are tasked with fitting a 40-feet rig into a narrow parking space. Initially, have someone to give your directions so that you can conveniently park your RV. If you do not have anybody to do that for you, get down from the vehicle and measure up the available space before backing in. Or simply pull through to avoid backing.
Challenge of Stopping and Turning
It is not easy to bring a heavy vehicle to a smooth stop. When on the road, always maintain a four to six second (400-500 feet) gap between you and the vehicle in front of you. You`ll have enough timemargin for bringing the rig to a halt under normal traffic situations. Maintain a moderate speed - 63 to 65 MPH - on Interstates. It will not only keep you safe but will also enable you to enjoy the ride and the scenery.
While turning, remember you only have two-and-a-half feet of Tail-Swing. So, keep your rig at least three-and-a-half feet away from any structure to get enough space for making a safe turn.
Also, mind the overhead clearance of your motor home when you drive along the side roads of the country, stop at fuel stops, or use overpasses.
When it comes to buying a motor home, most people want a Class A diesel pusher for space and luxury. Outdoor enthusiasts, who cannot afford a brand-new model, often opt for well-maintained used diesel motor homes. No matter what type of unit you purchase - new or pre-owned - a little practice is a must before your maiden trip.
