The weather is getting warmer, which means recreational vehicle owners are planning their spring and summer journeys. If you have an RV, making sure your vehicle is in flawless condition helps keep you safe and, in the long run, can help save you money. Needless to say, you never want to get stuck in the middle of nowhere with your RV, where you may be faced with a far distance to the nearest repair shop, and other critical issues.
There are two strategies to helping protect yourself from the unexpected while you’re on an RV adventure: insurance and maintenance. It’s a good idea to make sure your insurance is up-to-date and that you have the proper RV coverage.
As far as the second strategy goes, your RV is a big vehicle, which means maintenance is a big job. Make certain you routinely complete a maintenance checklist for both the interior and exterior of the RV. The simple tips below can serve as a basic checklist and will hopefully keep the mechanic off your travel agenda.
You may, of course, add other items to this checklist depending on your needs or the specifics of your vehicle.. Take your time when completing your RV inspection and you’ll have peace of mind when you hit the road for that next big adventure.
