Preventive Maintenance To Avoid RV Roadside Troubles

While there are some really basic things you can do on a monthly basis to keep your RV running smooth, there are additional quarterly, bi-yearly, and yearly tasks that must be completed to give you the best chances of a smooth hassle-less journey! These can include checking fuel lines, seals, wheel bearings, properly winterizing, and much more!

Routine professional checkups are vital and are a great way to avoid the frustration and embarrassment of sitting on the side of the road in New Mexico with smoke flowing out of your RV. Good Sense RV makes this preventive maintenance easy by offering convenient mobile RV repair and service!

Handling The Breakdown: What To Do If Your RV Breaks Down On The Side Of The Road In New Mexico

Step One: Stay calm.

RV Breakdowns happen and oftentimes at the most inconvenient times. If you’re able to, put your hazards on and try and make your way to an area that’s safe and has plenty of room such as a rest stop or parking lot. DO NOT CONTINUE TO DRIVE YOUR RV IF THERE IS SMOKE OR FOREIGN SMELLS.

Step two: Formulate A Plan

Once you’re in a safe place, contact Good Sense RV’s Mobile Repair department if you’re in Albuquerque New Mexico, or surrounding areas and our team will help you identify the fastest way to get you back on the road.

If you’re unable to stay in your RV, you’ll want to find a place to accommodate your family while you’re waiting for your RV to be assessed and repaired.
