Preventative RV maintenance can help you avoid costly repairs down the road. Here are four tips to help you get started:

Check your hitch before road trips.

If it’s not working properly, that could mean a surprise trip to the mechanic and possibly a claim on your RV insurance. Check to see that your hitch is working properly before you hit the road for a long weekend.

Keep your RV clean.

Ensure your RV is clean and free from dust and dirt. Dirty windows and lights can make for unsafe driving conditions, especially during inclement weather like heavy rain or snowfall.

Check your tire pressure.

Check the tire pressure of your RV before and throughout long trips to make sure your tires are not under or overinflated, both of which can cause problems for your vehicle and could even lead to an accident.

Check your battery.

Keeping your battery fully charged is important as well. When your RV battery gets low on charge, you may have trouble starting the engine or turning on some of the lights. You may also notice that the vehicle has a tendency to run hot for a short period after you start it up.
