We’re nearing the end of RV season, and one of the things you need to do to get ready for fall is make sure that your RV is ready for the new season, especially if you won’t be using it in the off-season. Here are a few things you should do to keep your RV in good shape (and legal) until you’re ready for next summer’s family trip.
Have an inspection
Take your RV to a reputable mechanic or dealer to have an inspection. An inspection will identify any problems with your RV that occurred during your summer travels. If you let problems sit through the off-season, they can end up to be major problems when you get your RV ready next summer. Taking care of these problems when you shut your RV down for the season will keep you from having bigger expenses next season.
Thoroughly clean your RV
Once your RV is at home or before you take it to storage, make sure you do a thorough job of cleaning it inside and out. Cleaning it inside will help prevent any unpleasant surprises next year. The inside-to-outside cleaning will also help keep your RV in good condition to minimize potential problems that would need to be repaired next year.
Speak with your insurance agent
If you are storing your RV for the off-season, the type of insurance you need may depend on how it is being stored and where. This will help ensure that you have the proper coverage for your RV, even when you’re not using it.
