Our advice for other motorhomers who travel with pets or are considering traveling with pets:
It's important that people at your campsite know there is a pet in your RV, in case there's an emergency while you're away (like a fire or natural disaster). We just put a note on the door (with our cell phone number) letting everyone know their is a pet on board. It's also important to have information with you about your pet and your RV's location when you are away from your motorhome (hiking, sightseeing, etc.) without your pet. We keep a copy of the RV site registration with us, which has the address and phone number, and a note about our dog (who is diabetic). If there is an accident, the authorities will be able to make sure our pet is taken care of.
