There are certain things that need checked on a routine basis to keep your RV as hassle free as possible.
Tires have a life span. The NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) recommends changing them after 6 years no matter the age or mileage for safety. No one ever wants to deal with a tire blow-out that could have deadly consequences.
Your RV roof is of main concern. It should be checked every 6 months and maintenance performed when necessary to help prevent water intrusion which is an RV’s constant adversary.
Checking all three electrical systems (shore power, chassis batteries and coach batteries) regularly can save many headaches since most major systems and slide-outs rely on these systems to be fully functioning for proper operation.
RV Propane or LP (Liquefied Petroleum) System Leak Tests are extremely important to verify that your propane system remains in top-notch condition and you can be assured no leaks are present as you use your RV.
LP (Propane) detectors as well as smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors should be checked every three months to help prevent a major life safety issue.
Checking the air conditioning systems by running Delta-T tests and checking fins helps keep them running at maximum cooling capacity.
Water heaters need to be flushed annually to prevent sediment buildup in the system.
Installing dauber screens on exterior appliances like furnaces and water heaters will prevent mud daubers from building nests that can inhibit air flow.
Refrigerator cooling coils and baffles need checked periodically to ensure proper cooling ability.
Mounting gutter extensions can reduce the occurrence of water intrusion in the sidewalls which can be a major problem if left unchecked.
RV fires happen more than anyone likes to admit, and Emergency Exit windows are often overlooked. They definitely need to be tested on a regular basis so that if you or your family need them, they will not trap you inside during a life-threatening situation.
