How to Get Your RV Ready for Spring

Get Your RV Ready for Spring

It’s Freezing Out There

Although you probably didn’t do much with your RV during this blisteringly cold winter, now that temperatures are warming up, it’s time to get your RV ready for spring. Here’s how:

Start with the outside

Do a thorough inspection of your RV’s exterior simply by walking around it. Look for any damage—hail dents, scrapes, rust, you name it. Also check the shore power outlet and cord and, just as you would with your vehicle, check your tire pressure and condition, refilling and replacing as necessary.

Don’t forget the inside

Animals like to burrow inside warm RVs during the cold winter months, so check for rodents and other pests. Thoroughly clean all the appliances, just as you would scrub down your kitchen during spring cleaning. Test all the interior lights and make sure the onboard technology works. Check for issues in your water lines and repair any leaks.

Check Your Propane

Finally, test your propane lines by lighting the pilot light on your stove. Because the gas likely escaped your lines during the winter, you may need to wait a few minutes before the gas reaches the point of ignition. Once it’s ready, you can fire up the furnace and ensure everything is in working order.
