Taking Care of Your RV Throughout the Year

7-8-2015-TakingCareRV

Your RV is your home on wheels, and it requires maintenance much like a brick-and-mortar home. Purchasing a top-quality RV is the first step to ensuring you enjoy a long and rewarding RV lifestyle, but keeping that RV in top shape is just as important. These four simple tips will help ensure your RV operates smoothly season after season for a more fulfilling life on the road.

1. Keep it Clean

Cleaning your RV inside and out on a regular basis is one of the easiest ways to keep dirt and grime from causing wear. After you wash the exterior of your RV, apply a coat of RV wax and UV protectant to keep your motorhome or travel trailer’s pristine fiberglass exterior in top condition.

2. Lubricate Often

Keep your sliders, hinges, locks and other moving RV parts operating properly by lubricating them often. Keep a dry silicone lube on hand at all times and spray it on your RV’s moving parts regular — not just when they start to stick.

3. Don’t Be Afraid to Tighten

Cruising down the road on a regular basis means your RV undergoes a ton of movement. All of that movement can loosen interior and exterior RV parts including ladders, entry steps and any items that are screwed into place. Keep a screwdriver and wrench in an easy-to-reach spot, so you can check screws and bolts every time you set up at a campsite.

4. Bring Your RV to Leisure Time
