Adventure season is here! For many RVers, the season is just beginning and it’s the perfect time to do a routine check on your camper. Before you head out, be sure to follow along with this handy checklist to avoid problems on the road:
- Do A Safety Check– Do you have smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, LP gas detectors, fire extinguishers and a first aid kit on board? These are all essential to a safe adventure.
- Check Fluids – It’s important to check all fluids on board. If levels are low, this may indicate a problem or leak.
- Flush Your Water System– De-winterize your system by flushing out the water tanks and sanitizing them. Be sure to check for leaks before you refill.
- Check Your Electrical Connection– If your shore power connector shows signs of rust, melting or burning, it’s time for an update. SmartPlug is the safe, simple and secure choice of updating your electrical connection.
- Inspect your Appliances– If you use propane to run your appliances, it’s important to conduct a leak test and gas pressure text to ensure your system is operating safely. Also, propane does expire so make sure to check the expiration date on your tanks too.
- Check Tires– Check the air pressure and look for signs of tread wear and cracking. The last thing you need when you hit the road is a blowout.
- Inspect Seams & Seals– Inspect your camper for any signs of cracks, openings, separations or signs of damage. If you notice any problems, you may need to seal or resurface.
- Check Batteries– Batteries lose energy during storage. Ensure your batteries are fully charged and have the correct water levels to avoid problems in the future.
Don’t leave your safety to chance. Make sure to take the time now to ensure everything is in place for a safe and fun RV season!
