After a long winter, many RV owners go through a checklist of items to prepare it for camping season in the spring. Along with regular maintenance and RV repair, there are four things that you should inspect as you open the RV for spring. These things may not be the most obvious, but they can help prevent further damage down the line.
These simple inspections do not take too long to complete and can be done on all types of RVs. Consult with your local RV repair technician if you have questions about your specific model or repairs that are needed.
It's important to check the tire pressure on your RV, but you can take things one step further to ensure full safety and preparation for when you're on the road.
The RV that becomes your traveling home in the summer is also an ideal place for animals to live during the winter. Anything from mice, rats, and raccoons could be living in your RV. A careful examination will help eliminate these animals and keep your RV pest free.
Locking up an RV for the whole winter causes a lot of dust and dirt to build up on the inside. When this occurs, you could be breathing in harmful bacteria and toxins. Your best bet is clear the RV out using multiple methods. One of the easiest methods is simply airing out the RV. This is a common practice where you open all the doors and windows to the vehicle.
Another way to ensure cleaner air is with an electronic device like an air purifier or a dehumidifier. The filters in the devices will help remove dust and particles in the RV. This will help create a clean feeling and make you feel better while you use the RV.
As you pack up for your first trip in the spring, there are some items that you should inspect on the RV. These items are easy to forget about or take for granted, but become essential to your daily travels.
Opening the RV for spring is important, so take your time with each step and ensure that the whole vehicle is operating normally.Share

Every year, my husband and I vacation for a few days at a mountain resort. This year, we encountered numerous obstacles that might have prevented us from enjoying this special time together. My spouse’s father needed surgery. I suffered an unexpected brief illness as well. When we were finally ready to go on our trip, my husband took our car for a tune-up. The mechanic informed us that we needed a new set of brakes. Without them, we might end up in danger while driving up and down steep mountains. Thankfully, our brakes were replaced and we enjoyed our time away from home. On this blog, you will learn why it’s important to check your brakes before taking a long trip in your vehicle. Drive safe!
