Securing TT for hurricane Harvey

We are new to the TT world and not sure the best way to secure the trailer. Is it best to have the slides in or out?

Slides in. I don't know where you are, but you might want to get it out of there.

This looks like a monster according to the coverage on CNN. Where are you in location to its landfall?

Only two ways I know how to "secure" a travel trailer in the path of a Hurricane. One is to move out of the area post haste. Like right now if you are in the path of "Harvey" and the usual rains, winds, flooding, tornado's that come out of a storm like that.

The other way is to call and make sure your Insurance is up to date and then just find safe haven for yourself and family.

Here's hoping you are safe.

We are in S.E. Texas in Lumberton about 90 miles from Galveston. Our biggest worry is the amount of rain they are predicting for our area. We aren't in the major path at this point.

You should be ok from wind there, but if it turns get out early.

If it turns and things change, we will leave but right now we aren't getting rain or wind from it.

They are suggesting people write there Social Insurance Number and phone number of next of Kin on their arms. I guess they mean what they say about getting out.
