Hook it to your TV and drive west a few hundred miles.

Use it to evacuate.

Otherwise, the advice over the past few weeks has included:

Tanks full.
Slides in.
Face toward wind. (Hard in a hurricane.)
Attach to TV.
Tie down.

Just sharing what others have said. I am no expert.

Not sure how much you can do. Park closer to a large structure for wind protection? Stabilizers down.

Short of evacuating, the rest is just hopeful at best.

Look what hurricanes do to mobile homes and houses that are PERMANENTLY anchored.

There is NO SUBSTITUTION for evacuation.

Just remember, things can be replaced. People can't. Look what happened in Houston and Irma is worse. Get yourself and family out while you can.
