Just like your house or your car, your RV is a major investment. One of the best ways to protect the value of this investment is to perform regular preventive maintenance. At Elite RV & Car Care our RV service, maintenance and repair team wants to make sure that your RV lasts as long as possible. Here, we have put together a list of four of our best tips to help you care for the exterior of your RV.
Keep Your RV Covered
Two of the biggest threats to your RV’s exterior are wind and rain. In Harris County, Texas, we get more than our fair share of rough weather. As such, when your RV is not in use, it is recommended that you keep your RV covered. At the very least, a large tarp should be used for protection from the elements. Though for long-term storage, it is best to keep your RV in an enclosed trailer storage unit.
Wash Your RV With Mild Solutions
To preserve the exterior of your RV, you also need to be sure to wash it on a regular basis. If you leave dirt, grime, insects or black streaks on the surface of your RV, you risk long-term damage. Regular exterior cleaning is a must. Remember to always wash your RV with mild solutions, and to use soft-bristled brushes. This will ensure that you do not cause any damage while scrubbing.
Wax and Polishing Can Extend the Life
Waxing and polishing the exterior of a large RV can be a time-consuming task. Some people may want to have it done by a professional, and the do-it-yourself version is certainly not for all RV owners. Though, waxing and polishing is certainly a worthy investment. Not only will it make your RV look better on the road, but waxing and polishing can help to extend the life of the exterior of your RV.
Frequent Inspections are a Must
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, it is imperative that you frequently inspect the exterior of your RV. You should check out the entire vehicle, looking for signs of water damage, roof sealant leaks or any other type of general degradation. If you find any sort of problem, please bring your RV into a qualified auto shop for immediate maintenance. By finding and addressing any signs of wear and tear as early as possible, you will save yourself some major headaches in the long run. Our RV service and repair team can get to work and can fix the issue to protect your vehicle.
