RV Maintenance Tips

From the Rocky Mountains of Colorado to the Gulf Shore of Texas, there's so much to see in our beautiful country. Two of the best ways to experience it are on the road and cruise inn camping. Before you head out to any of our many RV parks and campgrounds, it's important to make sure your RV is in good shape. Here are three helpful maintenance tips.

Getting Down to Business

A toilet problem can quickly turn into a stressful situation if you're not prepared. The best way to avoid plumbing issues is to take proper preventative measures:

• Dispose of toilet paper in the trash whenever possible to avoid backup.

• Use single ply paper so toilet paper breaks down easily.

• Attach your water pressure regulator to the park's water faucet before attaching your water hose. This will protect your pipes if the pressure spikes.

Get to Know Your Roof

It's a good idea to get familiar with the roof of your RV, specifically your air conditioning unit. Before camping, use a water hose to clear out any dirt and leaves that have built up in the unit. This extends the life of your air conditioner.

Maintaining Moving Parts

Keep a can of WD-40 around to treat any rust or grinding parts. Your trailer hitch, padlock, window latches, and parts that lower leveling jacks are particularly susceptible to wear.
