RV 101 – 5 RV Quick Tips

1) Wiper Blade Maintenance
Check the condition of your windshield wiper blades before you leave on a trip. This is one of those things we don’t think about until the next time we need them. Periodically clean the wiper blades with windshield washer fluid.

2) Maximize AC Efficiency
You can improve your A/C’s efficiency by keeping the A/C filters clean. Wash, rinse & dry the filters or clean using a hand-held vacuum. Keep spare filters on hand just in case.

3) Keep Food Fresh
Always keep a small thermometer in your RV refrigerator so you can monitor the temperature. Food can begin to go bad at about 40 degrees.

4) RV Tire Know-How
The load rating for a tire is only accurate if it is properly inflated.  Under inflated tires cause extreme heat that leads to tire failure

5) Quick Water Leak Test
A quick and easy way to test your RV plumbing system for leaks is to turn the 12-volt water pump on when there is water in the fresh water tank. After the water pump pressurizes the system & shuts off it should not come back on until you open a faucet. If it does there is a leak.

Happy Camping,
