Contrary to the common urge, it’s not the best idea to jerk your RV wheel back up onto the road when it slips off the highway shoulder. It may seem like the right move, getting the tire out of trouble as soon as you feel it slide, and most new RV drivers will implement this maneuver. But instantly yanking the wheel back onto the road can cause more problems than it solves, often leading to sliding and even rolling.

In this quick lesson, RV expert Dave Solberg teaches you the proper way to handle a scenario where your tire slips off the shoulder. He explains why it makes more sense to stay calm, slow down and ease into it. As always, take it one step at a time, and be aware of your surroundings!
