RV repairs could cost you a lot of money, so it is important that you give special attention to your RV’s maintenance.
How to save money on rv repairs.
One of the biggest problems people have is their batteries going dead so always check the batteries. They are the key to the electrical system on your RV so they need to be maintained. Don’t be fooled, even maintenance free batteries need maintenance.
Next, inspect the roof on your RV at least once every two to three months. Check to see if there are any cracks in the seals or if any seals are rolled up on the edges or even if the roof is dirty. Inspect the seams on the roofing material for cracks or deterioration. If you find any small cracks, fill with a silicone sealant.
Another important thing to do that will save you time and headaches is to check your tires and bearings every three months as well. Check your tires for proper inflation and inspect to check for dry rot. Dry rot will affect every tire at some point and is indicated by hairline cracks in the sidewalls of the tire. If you see these cracks, replace the tires. It will save you lots of time and headaches and you will not get stranded by the side of the road with a flat tire.
These are just some of the things that cause the most rv problems. By taking a little bit of time to properly service your RV yourself, you will save time and money, not to mention you will cut down on the problems you have at the campsite or on the road. Take the time to look at these things, and enjoy your RV for many years to come.
