What Your RV Needs before the Camping Trips Commence

If you’ve just retrieved your beloved RV from storage, ready to commence another year of camping trips, it’s probably not quite ready to hit the road. There are some things you will need to do to prepare your RV for travel. MobileRVService.com has a network of trusted RV service providers that we are happy to share with you as you get your RV ready to take your family on another year of adventures. Let’s look at a checklist of items your RV needs before you start your spring and summer traveling.

RV Maintenance, Cleaning, and Dewinterizing

De-Winterize Your RV

Unless you live in a warmer climate, your RV was likely winterized before it was put in storage to prevent frozen pipes and expensive damage. Once your RV is brought out of winter storage, you’ll need to drain the antifreeze and sanitize the water system in a process known as de-winterizing. Rather than trying to attempt this on your own, you can trust one of our vetted experts to handle the process for you.

A Thorough Cleaning

One of the first things you need for your camping trip is a thoroughly-cleaned RV. Our expert providers can clean the interior and exterior of your RV, and deliver the washing, waxing, and detailing that it needs to shine. We have plenty of providers in our network who specialize in cleaning, so you can rest assured that it’s in capable hands.

Preventative Maintenance 

Let us help you find a provider who can give your RV the preventative maintenance it needs. The sun’s rays and inclement weather conditions can break down an RV’s sealant and roof over time, allowing moisture to seep in. MobileRVService.com can connect you with someone who specializes in exterior sealing and roof treatments to keep unwanted moisture out. This maintenance is vital to your RV’s lifespan.

Check All Batteries

Before you take your RV out on the road, you’ll want to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they are functional. Even if they appear to be working, it’s a good idea to replace them as a measure of safety. You’ll also want to check the battery of the RV itself, whether it was removed for the winter or not.
