6 Points Of Regular Maintenance For Your RV

Your RV serves you well when you are ready to get away from home. Therefore, it needs periodic maintenance attention to continue to serve you as you expect. RV warranty maintenance services can help you with this. Here is a short list of some of the things that do need to be checked on occasion on your RV. 

1. Check the rubber seals around the windows and doors. 

The rubber seals around the doors and windows need to be checked occasionally to make sure they are not showing signs of deterioration. These seals are soft and pliable to thwart problems with air and moisture, but they can break down if they are not regularly lubricated with a conditioning solution. 

2. Have your batteries tested and replaced if needed. 

Have your batteries checked for the proper charge if you don't have a good battery charger yourself. Most RV maintenance centers can help you out with this, and it only takes a few minutes. Testing the batteries will let you know if the units are holding charge properly. If they're not, it may be time for replacement. 

3. Flush the wastewater system thoroughly. 

The wastewater system should be emptied when the RV is not being used, but it should also be flushed periodically to eliminate any waste accumulation inside the holding tank. Flushing can be done with water and proper cleaning agents, but this is not an enjoyable task and can take a lot of care to make sure you do it properly. 

4. Clean the slide-out mechanisms and lubricate them. 

If your RV has a slide-out, make sure you take the time to clean the sliding mechanisms and properly lubricate all the moving parts. This can take a bit of time to do, but it is really important to retain the sliding function. Too much debris accumulation can lead to corrosion of the slides. 

5. Check the RV brake system. 

The brake system of your RV does need periodic attention. Depending on how much you travel, you should have your brakes checked annually or more often if you travel long distances on a frequent basis. 

6. Examine the RV's wheels. 

Check your tire pressure, tighten the lug nuts, and do a general examination of the tire's quality. It is also a good idea to take a look at your spare tire and make sure it is properly inflated and ready to go.
