The following includes some safety tips that should be adhered to when operating a recreational vehicle:

1. Maintain your propane tank. If left unchecked or not used properly, a propane tank can explode or overheat. Make sure your propane tank is regularly checked by a professional dealer and install a propane gas detector. Never paint your propane tank in a black color because then the tank will quickly absorb sunlight and become overheated.

2. Wear all required gear. Make sure you are wearing a helmet and any other appropriate gear when driving a recreational vehicle. Research indicates that the use of protective gear when driving or riding vehicles and bikes can decrease the likelihood of a serious or fatal injury in an accident.
