Get Your RV Ready for Summer Travel

Class C MotorhomeThe snow has melted and it’s time to think about getting your RV ready for the summer travel season. Before you can take your travel home out on the road, there are preparations you have to make to ensure a safe and comfortable trip.

  • Reinstall the battery, try out the brakes and the tail lights
  • Check the tires, air pressure, and lug nuts
  • Drain the water lines and flush the antifreeze out
  • Sanitize the lines with a mild bleach solution, leaving it for 24 hours before rinsing it out
  • Fill the water heater, then plug in the electric to test it
  • Connect the LP tanks, then test the stove burners, water heater, and furnace
  • Replace the batteries in the carbon monoxide detector and smoke detector
  • Check the fire extinguisher and replace it, if needed
