4 Tips For Your Next RV Road Trip
Planning any Recreational Vehicle trips this year? As the weather warms up and the days get longer, many RV owners start dreaming of hitting the open road. Here are a few tips to ensure you are ready for any maintenance issues with your RV during your trip. Don’t let just anyone deal with your RV’s maintenance. Find an experienced RV mechanic to inspect and service your RV at DJ’s Auto Repair. We’ll have your RV fixed up and ready to go in no time.
1. Budget for repairs year round.
Aside from regular maintenance, your RV will need repairs. It’s not a matter of “if” but “when”. RVs tend to need repairs while drivers are on the road. Budget accordingly. Don’t leave for a trip without some extra cash for unexpected repairs.
Just like you would for any of your vehicles, set aside cash throughout the year to deal with RV maintenance costs as they occur.
2. Keep the tools you’ll be needing for your RV accessible.
If you have taken your recreational vehicle on a few vacations, you probably already know what kinds of tools are most helpful. You can also consult the owner’s manual for more information. Worried about forgetting them? Add these tools to your RV checklist.
Keep tools in a place that is easy to access since you may need them in a hurry.
3. Do a careful inspection of your vehicle before you leave.
Even if you don’t see any obvious issues with your RV, it’s a good idea to do a thorough inspection for any leaky seals, battery health, breaks, and much more.
Not sure what to look for? Most RV owners manuals will help give you a good idea of what to keep an eye on. You can also have an experienced mechanic look at it. At DJ’s Auto Repair we believe in preventative maintenance. We see several RVs in our shop for routine maintenance and part replacement.
4. Should something go wrong…
It’s a good idea to have a plan in place should your RV need any maintenance. As you plan your RV adventure, keep track of nearby maintenance shops.
You should also keep flashlights and other emergency equipment on hand.
