Summer vacation’s over, so, it’s time to put away the RV until next year’s travels. One important thing you can do to make sure that your RV is ready to go when you are is to keep up with proper RV roof maintenance. To keep your family’s home away from home in tip top shape:
- Clean thoroughly about four times a year. This will keep dirt, sap and leaves from causing excess wear. If you park under a tree, clean more often and debris can accumulate more quickly.
- Check all the seams twice a year. Inspect the RV thoroughly to avoid leaks. If your RV’s roof’s seams are damaged, consult a professional to avoid costly water damage.
- If your roof is made out of rubber, apply a protective treatment after your vehicle is washed and inspected. This can help extend your RV’s life and avoid costly repairs.
- Check the refrigerator and holding tank vents regularly. They should be undamaged and free of obstructions.

Preparing your home for fall is not a complicated process but it is an important one. Autumn is a time of change in the air and in your home. Our All Nevada Insurance blog is here to offer you some advice on getting your home ready for the fall season.

- Check for gaps, leaks and cracks around your homes’s doors, windows and foundation.
- Get in touch with your insurance agent for a homeowners insurance review. Make sure you absolutely know what you are, and aren’t, covered for. This includes flood insurance. A simple call can get you started.

Snacking may be a critical facet of your diet. If you go too long without food you may overeat during mealtimes which leads to more weight. For those sitting behind a desk, being mindful of what you eat is extremely important. Instead of reaching for fatty foods or a candy bar, there are a few healthy office snacks that you could have around.
Chocolate Covered Edamame
Packed with antioxidants, dietary fiber, and protein, this is the perfect chocolate snack treat. Since this snack is crunchy and semi-sweet, your cravings will be covered and so will your appetite.
Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Granola Bars
The protein (4 grams per bar) will keep you full, and the fact there is no cholesterol, no Trans Fat, and is made with all-natural ingredients makes these bars healthy. Plus, they’re tasty, especially the peanut bars.
Ants on a Log
A classic office snack, all you need is celery, peanut butter, and raisins. If you want variations, you can try adding honey, substituting peanut butter with cream cheese, or substituting raisins with currants.

Dog bites happen far more regularly than people think. While our canine friends are supposed to be our best buddies, they are still animals and often snap or take quick bites to communicate that someone or some thing needs to get away from them quickly. Unfortunately, even a quick snap can cause serious damage to a person unlucky enough to be bit. Further, Nevada state law allows a victim to sue a dog owner for negligence, allowing damages for pain and suffering. Those claims can get very expensive very quickly for a dog owner who is unprepared for the related risk.
The All Nevada Insurance Blog can guide you on how to deal with dog bite risk. The danger is real, and every dog owner should be aware of what state law requires in the case of a dog bite. Owners can avoid this problem by being prepared and taking precautions ahead of time with their canine friends to avoid accidents and related legal costs. Give All Nevada Insurance a call for more information if you have questions.

If you’re not aware of staged car accidents, you may not be able to adequately protect yourself from them. A staged car accident is a car accident that another person initiates intentionally for a variety of reasons. The driver could be seeking medical care for an existing problem, such as a spinal injury. More often, the driver is looking for a quick settlement or even a payoff.
Staged car accidents often occur in two stages: one car will get in front of you and will slow or stop suddenly, and this will drive you into another car to your side. The car at your side will claim to not have seen anything at all that would have caused you to swerve.
Other times, a staged car accident can be as simple as another car tapping their brakes to get you to hit them from the back. It’s important to note, however, that all of these accidents rely on you being too close to other vehicles. If you ever feel boxed in by other cars, or as though other drivers are getting too close, you should take immediate action to get away.
For more information about staged car accidents, and the auto insurance options you can use to protect yourself from them, contact the experts at the All Nevada Insurance Blog.
