Spring is coming and it is time to get your camper ready for all the action! Follow these simple steps and you will be set to hit the open road and enjoy your camper as it was intended.
1. Check Exterior
Water leaks are the biggest problems that are found after the winter months. Check your roof and all the caulking around the windows, vents, air conditioners, and doors to make sure there are no cracks or missing caulk. Even the smallest cracks and holes can cause
serious water damage to your RV.
Inspect your tires for sidewall cracks or cracks between the treads. Any cracks should be treated seriously and replaced. Also, don’t forget to check your tire pressure.
3. Clean Appliances
Inspect all appliances, including the outside access covers for your water heater and refrigerator, for any foreign debris like spider webs, nests, dead insects or small critters. Do a thorough cleaning with household cleaners to clean up all the dust and dirt from being in storage.
Keep your batteries in good working order by inspecting them before each season. Before checking and cleaning your batteries, make sure to wear safety glasses and latex or protective gloves. Disconnect shore power and make sure all items in your RV are off and the main power switch is off.
Sewer hoses have a limited lifespan. Inspect your sewer hose for any tears or holes before using it.
6. Waste Tank Valves
Inspect the valve seal on your waste tank. Carefully work the handle in and out in short increments to make sure it is opening and closing properly.
