Clean Your RV

Giving your RV a routine wash will not only help it continue to look great, but it will also keep all your moving parts working at their optimum. Start by removing any leaves, dirt or debris from the engine. Once this is done, wash it down with the motor washer at the car wash. From there, clean the inside of your RV by vacuuming the carpets, cleaning the surfaces, bathroom, kitchen and windows. Finish the job by washing your RV’s exterior, and once it is dry, wax it with a RV-specific wax.

Sanitize Tanks

We recommend sanitizing your tanks every couple of months or sooner depending on use. Borax and Calgon water softener mixed with some bleach will do the trick.

Seams & Seals

Inspect your RV’s roof, window and door seals for any holes or cracks. If any are found, use Eternabond tape to fill them.

Check Voltage Output

Investing in a multimeter will help you ensure that your main voltages are in good working order. The main batteries should register between 12.4 volts and 1.8 volts when they are NOT being charged. The AC voltage should not be any higher than 130 volts or any lower than 108 volts.
