RV Maintenance Tips

Our neighbors in Cypress, TX love to go RVing all around our great state and beyond. At InsureUS, we want to make sure you’re ready for the road, wherever it may take you. Below are some great RV maintenance tips before your next great adventure.

Maintain Your RV Regularly

Some experts recommend performing a regular inspection every quarter. This inspection should cover general RV care such as engine maintenance and roof protection. Many RV owners may not have the time to perform such tasks often, but it’s especially important before you go on a trip.

Maintaining The Engine

You won’t be going far on a busted engine. Before any big trips, make sure your filters are inspected and changed, as is the oil. Luckily, an RV doesn’t typically need oil changes as often as a daily use vehicle, though it should be needed once a year at least. Also check your battery before each trip and after taking the RV out of storage.

Maintaining The Roof

Since we don’t really see the roof often, it’s easy to forget to check it for damages. Leaks are a major problem that can cause damage long before they become noticeable inside. Air conditioners are a high leakage point, as are vents and seams. Inspect these areas frequently and repair them with an appropriate sealant. Keeping your RV covered when not in use and cleaning the roof regularly can help avoid damage that can lead to leaks.

Make Sure You’re Insured

It may seem obvious coming from us, but RV insurance is one of the best ways to protect yourself against unforeseen damages. Whether it’s the degradation of parts or an accident on the road, RV insurance from InsureUS can get you back on the road fast.
