What Monthly Maintenance Looks Like For Your RV

So, you bought your RV and now you’re looking for the best ways to take care of your investment. One of the most important things you can do is keep up with your ongoing monthly maintenance. You may not know what this entails but it’s all about checking your RV over from head to toe and looking at parts such as lights bulbs, wheel bearings, checking batteries, or anything else which might need attention in order to avoid bigger problems down the line.

Checking fluid levels on the battery is a great way to make sure you’re on top of your game. Keeping the fluid level on your batteries will prevent overheating or fires. Overcharging can cause significant water loss and thus it’s very important to check and maintain necessary water levels. Always remember to use distilled water and check levels at least once per month. If you are constantly charging your RV, you may want to check bi-weekly.

Additionally, you’ll want to use this time to check if there’s any cracking in the battery casing, corrosion build up or loose connections which could indicate other issues that need your attention.

Quarterly and Yearly Maintenance To Avoid Nightmare Situations On The Road

There have been many RV owners who have neglected the ongoing maintenance of their RV’s only to find themselves either stranded or with a broken down RV on the side of the road. This is why it’s important to check all your fluids and tire pressure before you go out, as well as make sure that all fluid and electrical lines are working properly. You should also be aware of any rust or corrosion which could indicate more serious issues with your vehicle.

Quarterly and bi-yearly maintenance includes such things as checking gas lines, smoke alarms, clean filters and all seals.
