Try These 10 RV Maintenance Tips Before Your Next Trip – Miami RV Repairs

Whether you’re planning to embark on your next adventure or getting ready to rent out your RV to like-minded travelers, consider RV Repairs in Miami from Camp USA. Maintenance is important to maintain the health and longevity of your vehicle. Here are 10 tips for ensuring your RV’s maintenance.

Maintain the Brakes

To keep up with safety on the road, have your brakes inspected at least once every spring. Your wheel bearings need to be lubricated and your brake pads should be thick enough.

Replace the Filters

Fuel, coolant, hydraulic and air filters have to be changed regularly. It is important to have them inspected and changed every season.

Clean the Awning

When you don’t clean the awning, you may have a buildup of mold and mildew. Try to inspect it regularly, and also inspect for any tears in the fabric.

Check Tire Pressure

Whenever you leave on a trip, check the vehicle’s tire pressure. Also, it helps to make sure that the wheel lug nuts are secure. To help avoid a flat tire or blowout, Miami RV Repairs from Camp USA can ensure your tires are ready for the road.

Test Your Battery

While some batteries require little maintenance, you should always check yours before hitting the road. To maintain the longevity of your battery, make sure that it is charged at all times. Most batteries will last for three to five years.

Maintain the Wastewater System

Without wastewater maintenance, your system could become clogged or your system might fail altogether. You need to make sure that you are using the proper chemicals for your particular system.

Check the Roof Seals

Check your RV for leaks every three months. If there are any open seams, vents, AC units or skylights, water can leak inside and cause even bigger problems.

Clean the Slide Outs

If you don’t clean the slide outs regularly, your RV’s seal may not function properly. You should also make sure that the slider mechanism remains lubricated.

Test Your Electrical Connection

Test your electrical connection before you leave home. If you tow your RV with another vehicle, you need to make sure that the brake lights turn on when you hit the brakes on the tow vehicle.
