The best way to see the country this Spring Break is by RV travel. There are more than 4,300 RV campsites spread out across the country. These locations are close to popular tourist attractions including national parks and beaches. You can choose from a wide variety of campgrounds, so you can be sure to plan a memorable RV road trip. However, before you set out, it’s important to make sure your RV is in top working condition to avoid any setbacks out on the road. Check out these tips from your friends at Unlimited RV in Tennessee to make sure you’re ready for your Spring Break trip.
Give It a Good Clean
Although it might seem obvious, keeping the RV clean is a crucial component of RV maintenance. On a lengthy trip, these vehicles can accumulate a lot of dirt, especially if you pass through an area with bugs, dust, or salty air at the beach. These external factors, if ignored, can damage the paint on your RV and potentially result in mold and mildew. We advise washing the outside of your RV before you hit the road to keep it in top condition.
Check the Roof
As an RV roof is often flat, there is no natural way for debris to fall off; therefore, leaves and dirt can easily accumulate on top. If the buildup of roof debris isn’t frequently cleaned up, it can damage your roof and lead to leaks. Do a thorough check of your roof before your trip, and if you do find any damage, have a service expert handle any repairs you may need. You should also keep an eye on it throughout your trip as it can easily collect more debris from the campsites you plan to visit.
Check Tires, Headlights, and Brake Lights
Before your trip, it’s crucial to check the condition of your tires. Check your tires carefully for wear, rips, and punctures. Even if your RV is brand new, you should check the pressure on your tires before any road trip. Your tires could quickly overheat and blow out if they don’t have enough air in them. The same is true for your headlights and brake lights. Ensuring they are in good working order is a great way to avoid getting pulled over or rear-ended during your trip.
