3 Ways to Take Care of Your RV

If you own an RV, then you know how much time it takes to take care of it properly. RVs are great recreational vehicles to have, but they do require a lot of time and attention. Let’s take a quick look at three ways you can take care of your RV. 

1) Get the oil changed regularly

Just like cars, trucks, and SUVs, RVs need their oil changed regularly. Most manufacturers of RVs suggest oil changes once every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. To determine the manufacturer preference for the specific type of RV that you own, look in your owner’s manual. 

2) Check the batteries

Before you head out on the road with your RV, you need to make sure any and all batteries are charged. Also, keep in mind that deep cycle batteries have a battery life of only about three to five years, meaning they need to be replaced after this time period has elapsed. More so, remember to take the battery out of the RV during the winter and store it somewhere warm; this expands its lifespan and helps to ensure the warranty on the battery does not become void. 

Check the roof seals

Along with checking the roof seals every six months, you should also check the seams. You don’t want any water damage to occur because if it does, it can cost thousands of dollars to repair. Fortunately, if you check the roof seals and seams regularly, you can avoid water damage from occurring.
