Basic RV Maintenance to Keep Your RV in Shape

Performing basic RV maintenance can be a little more complex than a routine car check-up. Make sure you don’t neglect these needs.

Replace Fluids and Filters

The same way you would routinely replace the fluids and filters in daily driving vehicles, such as changing the oil and the oil filter, you also do in RVs. This keeps your RV running properly and prevents complications like overheating or oxidization.

Inspect Roof Seals and Seams

Make sure your RV isn’t leaking. Water damage can be a huge sinkhole for costs if leaks aren’t promptly found and fixed, so regularly inspections should be performed. Also, have your roof treated regularly to prevent sun damage.

Service Your Generator

Your RV uses a generator for the electricity necessary to power what’s essentially a mobile home. Have it inspected regularly, and run it occasionally even when in storage.

Take Care of the Battery, Too

RV batteries can burn out in the range of three to five years, so keep an eye on the shelf life. In fact, you might want to take your battery out and store it in the winter.

By doing basic RV maintenance, you’re extending the life of your RV and getting the most out of it without sinking money into repair costs. It’s a win-win. Stop by Hanner RV Supercenter for all of you maintenance and service needs.
