RV Maintenance Tips

An RV is an expensive investment costing somewhere between the price of a car and the price of a house. It is important to properly maintain an RV in order to protect the investment and increase the amount of enjoyment from the RV. Here are some RV maintenance tips that a person can use to keep their RV running well. Follow these tips and you should get years and years of enjoyment from your RV.

One of the best ways to maintain an RV is to use it. One of the worst things you can do to an RV is park it and only use it once or twice a year. Frequent use will help keep the engine and other mechanical parts working well. If an owner is unable to take the RV on trips on a frequent basis, even driving the RV around the block will help to keep the mechanical system lubricated. The owner should also inspect the RV for any problems before leaving on a trip. An inspection should include checking the oil, engine coolant and other fluid levels as well as the testing of appliances and lights. Owners should also check the seals around doors and windows for cracks or other signs of problems. After a trip, the owner should again perform an inspection of the RV. The owner should also cover the tires to prevent deterioration from the sun.

RV owners need to be certain to properly use their RV’s black tank in order to maintain the toilet system. The black tank is used by the RV to store materials from the toilet. Though no one wants to carry around material in the black tank, owners should only dump the tank when it is at least ¼ full. Dumping a tank early may result in deposits in the tank that will harden and cause problems over time. RV toilets are designed for use with toilet paper that deteriorates quickly. RV owners should only use toilet paper designated as safe for use in an RV.

When winter comes around RV owners need to take additional steps to protect their RV according to Wilder RV. Before storing for the winter, an owner should thoroughly clean the RV to remove dirt and debris. In colder climates the owner should flush out the fresh water tank and lines to prevent the lines from freezing. Air pressure can be used to push out the water in the lines or non-toxic RV antifreeze can be placed into the lines. Clean the refrigerator and store with the door open to allow it to completely dry. Removing the battery or batteries and storing them in a climate controlled area will prevent damage from exposure to cold temperatures.

You must also include if there are any problems that needs to be taken care of so that the buyer will be aware that there is a problem with the camper trailers or the RV that needs to be fixed and addressed. When posting an ad online, you can also put pictures of the actual travel trailer that you have for sale, the picture should cover all angles of the trailer so that the buyer will have an idea of how your trailer looks.

Include your name and contact number and clearly indicate that you are willing to have the trailer checked and inspected by them. This will also give an assurance to the buyers that they will be getting their money’s worth because you already have set their expectations.

Another way of letting people know that the trailer is for sale is to put a “travel trailer for sale” sign outside the trailer and park it in front of your home. This will make more people aware that the owner is looking for buyers for the trailer. It will not only increase the number of people who will call to inquire about your travel trailer or used RV, but it will also increase the possibility that you will get a buyer for your travel trailer.
