Soon, the weather will be changing and getting warmer, which means it is time to take your RV out of storage. If your RV has been parked all winter, then there is maintenance that needs to be done. There may also be a few minor repairs and improvements that you want to have an RV service do before you hit the road. The following maintenance guide will help you prepare your RV for spring and summer adventures:
Cleaning the Interior and Making Sure There Is Nothing Left in Storage from Last Season
The interior of your RV should have been cleaned and the storage areas like cabinets and refrigerators left open during the winter months. If you did this, then you should not need to do much more than clean and stock your RV. If there is anything left from past travel seasons, you will want to remove it and replace it while cleaning.
Checking the Tires, Rubber Seals Around Windows and Doors, and Other Exterior Finishes
You will also want to check the tires of your RV for dry rot, cracks, and wear. Replace the tires if the treads are worn or if they are old and damaged. In addition, check other weather seals of doors and windows on the exterior of your RV. Inspect them for damage and problems that need to be repaired before you start traveling this spring.
Doing the Maintenance to The Motor and Transmission to Get Ready to Drive Your RV This Spring
There are other mechanical components of the drivetrain of your RV that will need maintenance. Start by installing or replacing the old batteries of your RV. Continue the maintenance by changing the engine oil and doing a tune up. You will also want to check the transmission fluid and make sure that there are not any leaks that need to be repaired.
Flushing Storage Tanks and Doing Mechanical Repairs to Ensure You Do Not Discover Problems When Traveling
It is also important to do the mechanical system maintenance for the plumbing, electrical and communications systems of your RV. Start by cleaning and flushing the water and wastewater storage tanks. Check the plumbing and tanks for leaks that need to be repaired. Lastly, inspect all the electrical and communication systems to ensure everything is working properly before you get ready to travel.
These are some of the repairs and improvements that need to be done to prepare your RV for summer adventures. If you are ready to take your RV out of storage and need help getting it ready for travel, contact a company with RV services to have the maintenance and repairs done to ensure you do not have road trouble this summer.Share
