Maintenance Issues That All RV Owners Need to Consider
If you are an RV owner, particularly if you are a new RV owner, you need to have a basic understanding of some of the unique upkeep and maintenance items that come with an RV purchase.
The first thing that needs to be considered is that many people use their RV’s seasonally. If this applies to you, it means that you should be having both a spring and summer inspection and service. These service intervals will make sure you are keeping your investment in great condition for your travel plans. If you have not used your RV in several months, you do not want to plan a lengthy trip without first getting it inspected. Motor vehicles that sit for long periods of time can sometimes develop unexpected problems.
Specialized Lubes, Oils, and Fluids
Simply due to their large size, RVs are often under more stress than are standard sized vehicles. You need to take action to relieve this stress so that you spare your RV from avoidable wear and tear. Specifically, this means that it is important to change all fluids regularly including engine oil, transmission, differentials, cooling systems, brake systems and all hoses and belts. This dramatically reduces your chances of having a major problem on the highway. It can be costly to have an RV towed or have to perform emergency repairs during your planned travel time.
Further, many RV’s require special oil and fluids to the size and type of use. As such, is imperative that get your RV serviced regularly and at an auto shop that is qualified to perform RV maintenance. RVs are different than standard automobiles, and you need to work with a professional that has relevant experience servicing and repairing RVs. At Elite RV & Car Care, our service center also includes maintenance for RV’s, 5th wheels, travel trailers, and boat trailers.
Tires & Wheels
Think about just how much pressure is put on your RV’s tires. There can be no doubt that these tires go through a lot. This makes it extremely important to have your RV undergo regular tire rotations and tire inspections. Beyond the size of RVs, these vehicles also often sit for prolonged periods of time, which can cause tire cracking and weathering. This is not only unsafe but can lead to costly, dangerous emergency service. Do not get caught off guard on your vacation with a flat or a tire blow out. Get your RV tires inspected and serviced before you hit the open road for long trip.
