What SHOULD I have done ?
I consider myself still very new at RVing . Though I have pulled my trailer around 12,000 miles and am much more comfortable than I was a year and a half ago when my wife talked me into doing it . Last week something happened that is still giving me chills .
Driving along a nice stretch of two lane highway , speed limit 50 , I'm going 55 . There was 5 or 6 vehicles behind me , the third one back decides to pass ... okay , there was room , no problem (fool) . Monkey see monkey do ... The next guy decides to do the same thing . Well this time there is a curve coming up and evidently this guys vehicle didn't have the get up and go he thought it did ... So he's out there and I see a car coming from the other direction and I know there is no way the guy passing could see it ( he was only about half way passed me ) , so I hit the brakes pretty hard ... he should have been able to get around me and back on our side , but NO , when he saw the car coming the other way he hit his brakes and sent the other car scrambling to get out of the way . I had moved over to the right as far as I could . Fortunately there was no wreck and no damage ...
What i want to know is , did I do the right thing ... what could I have done better ... is there an official rule of the road that I should adhere to in a situation like that ??? that was the most scared I've been so far and would welcome any advice on how to handle that kind of thing better .
