  1. There’s a nice little highlights for preparing to travel with a pet, but what I was hoping for is the nitty-gritty tips on how to do so safely. Specifically, do people have back up systems for possible electrical outages or converters going out? We had a converter go out in our RV once while we were out exploring for nine hours during the day in the southwest where it was over 100° that day. When we returned to the RV the refrigerator and freezer had thawed in the interior of the RV. I remember being grateful we have not traveled with a pet, and I’ve been super anxious about doing so ever cents in case something similar would happen. It had to be at least 90° on the inside of that rig and any animal might’ve died after that many hours alone in there.

    1. I have a bird and I worry about this very same thing!

    2. We worried about leaving our dog in the camper too.
      We use a Verizon WiFi jet pack and a mobile battery operated home security camera in the camper to watch our dog and monitor the AC/temperature.
      Also, we don’t go away for too long or too far in case something happens and we need to return quickly.
      Leave plenty of cold/iced water and choose the shadiest location.
      Happy camping!!
