RV Emergency Kits: What You'll Need to be Prepared On the Road

 / By Lazydays - On the Road RV Tips
Don't be caught unprepared in the event of an RV emergency.

No one wants to think about emergencies, but if you find yourself in a dicey situation in your RV, you’ll be glad you prioritized emergency preparedness. While not everyone’s RV emergency kit will look exactly the same, we’ve come up with a list of some helpful items you should consider packing before heading out on a long road trip.

Spare Tire & Automotive Accessories

We’ll start with the most obvious: a spare tire. If one of your tires goes, you won’t want to wait for roadside assistance if you don’t have to. We offer Hide-A-Spare Tire Storage that won’t interfere with bike racks and cargo trays. You’ll also want tools to help make changing your tire as easy as possible, like a tire changing tool and ramp. You’ll also want to make sure to have starter cables with you in case of a dead battery, but be sure to account for the fact that many starter cables need cable boosters to reach an RV battery.

Generators, Flashlights and Fire Starters

Especially during inclement weather, generators can help keep things running smoothly, even without electricity. Even if you do have a generator, you should make sure to have alternative options available, including flashlights, waterproof matches and fire starter bricks. We recommend flashlights that don’t require batteries like this Solar LED Flashlight or Emergency Wind-Up Flashlight. You can even find emergency items like this 4-Function Power Station, which functions as a flashlight, radio, siren and cell phone charger.

First Aid, Emergency Gear and Rations

While you can purchase pre-made First Aid Kits, it’s important to remember that each individual has unique needs. Make sure to bring extras of any prescription medications that you might need, as well as extra water and non-perishables. You’ll also want to include a survival whistle, emergency blanket, a utility knife and light sticks.

Lazydays RV Accessories & More has more than 40,000 RV parts and accessories, including many items you might need in the event of an emergency. Browse online or stop by any of our locations in Florida, Arizona or Colorado and find everything you’ll need to hit the road in your RV!
