My 831RLBSS is outside. Any advice on precautions I need to take to secure the trailer would be appreciated?

I may position the trailer where the wind will hit it from the front, which would be the same as pulling it down the road.
We are here near Houma, I backed my trailer into the driveway up against the garage, but the stabilizers down good and tight, put my chocks in good and filled ALL my tanks. I am just crossing my fingers it won't move too much.

Our camper is in a steel siding storage unit east of Baton Rouge. 4 way level up system down. Hope it holds for the duration of the storm. Tomorrow will be the worst!

I live south of I-10 in La. I pulled my camper from the backyard and placed it in an RV rental lot that is free of trees and surrounded by a 10 foot chain link fence. Filled the grey and fresh water tank and put down the stabilizers. Could be overkill, but i"ll sleep better tonight. Good Luck.

I've been listening to where ya are going to be on the east side (the worse) of the storm. Let's all hope it doesn't linger too much.

Best of luck to everyone.

Thanks. Hurricane just made landfall so we will begin feeling full effects around midnight. They are saying the worst will be tomorrow. DW and I are hoping we do not lose power during the night.

Good Luck, I wish that you could get in your RV and head out. It is so nice up north this time of year. Almost any place is better in the summer then the south. Happy Trails

We hope to be able to stay up north in the summer in the next year or so when we can retire. The hurricane is stalled, so we are looking at today and tomorrow sweating this thing out.

You may want to make sure you have a supply of cash on hand in case the power (and thus all electronic transactions) goes out for any length of time and you find you need more fuel or something.

Good luck.

We are hearing reports, like below, that some parish levees got overtopped with water, and people are having to flee to their attics. Luckily, there are brave people who are rescuing them.

Hurricane Isaac rescues in Plaquemines Parish so far thanks to Jesse Shaffer and son | NOLA.com
