Don’t Blow up the Motor home! – RV Tip if You Have Dogs
April 26 – 2018
Just a quick tip for people who RV with their beloved dogs. We learned something the hard way, and I think it’s a worthy lesson to pass on.
We travel with two dobermans. Journey is the youngest at 4 months old. This wonderful and beautiful addition to our family could have killed us twice. BANG!
A few weeks back, Doug and I were watching TV at night, and I wasn’t feeling to well. So I stepped outside for some fresh air, and when I came back in I found out that Journey, upon trying to see what might be on the kitchen counter, had stood up and turned on the propane stove. We quickly got the girls out, opened the windows and let out a huge sigh of relief.
Today she did it again. This time Doug and I were outside for a while, and when we went in the unit you could almost choke on the fumes! Again the windows were opened, and the dogs quickly escorted out.
Thank goodness we discovered what was going on, or we could have lost everything. Be very careful my friends… Children and pets need to be monitored in these rigs, and we must always look for possible hazards! 🙂
It was then that we took all the knobs off of the stove.
Something to think about if you travel with dogs or kids. Propane can be dangerous, and it would be a horrible thing to have an accident or death due to negligence.
