Common RV Service Needs

Apr 24, 2023 | RV Maintenance, RV Repair, RVs

Since RVs have large transmissions, powerful diesel engines, and complex drivetrains, they require routine maintenance service (and sometimes, repairs). RV Mobile Edmonton is proud to offer the highest quality in Edmonton RV repair and service for all types of RVs. Whether you need preventative maintenance or large-scale repairs, you can trust that our expert technicians have the knowledge and skills to get the service right the first time.

Typical Edmonton RV Service & Repair Needs

Each unit may require different types of RV service depending on their size, usage, age, and several other factors. However, a few common repairs that may require you to make a trip to our RV repair shop include:

  • Exterior: The outside of your RV can easily become damaged from the harsh weather we experience here in Alberta. Rain, snow, wind, and hail (or even the road debris!) can lead to needing to bring your camper to our Edmonton RV repair shop.
  • Interior: Factors like water damage, wear and tear, and other issues can lead to you needing to get work done on the interior of your RV. (PRO TIP: To minimize your risk of water damage, be sure to regularly get your seals maintained!)
  • Engine: The powerful engines in your RV require more regular maintenance than that of your car. Wear and tear, overheating, and a lack of maintenance can cause you to run into issues with your engine.
  • Plumbing: Especially if you haven’t properly winterized your RV ahead of the cold months here in Edmonton, your pipes can freeze and crack – which can cause serious damage to your RV’s plumbing systems.
  • RV Body and Frame: If you run into the unfortunate situation where you’ve been in a collision, your RV may need repair work done on it’s body and frame.
  • Transmission: Repairs may be needed on your camper’s transmission due to lubrication issues or overheating.
  • Drivetrain: This includes your transmission, axels, and other components that transfer power to the wheels. Often repairs are required on the drivetrain after the RV has been though a lot of wear and tear.
  • Electrical: You may need repairs done on the complex electrical systems in your RV.


Common RV Maintenance Services

As an RV owner, it’s crucial to keep up with regular maintenance to ensure that your vehicle stays in peak condition for many years to come. We are proud to provide the best RV maintenance service here in Edmonton. Here are some of the common maintenance services we recommend investing in to keep your RV running optimally:

  • Oil Changes: Just like any other vehicle, RVs require regular oil changes to keep the engine running smoothly. Aim to change your RV’s oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, or as recommended by your manufacturer.
  • Tire Inspections and Rotations: Regular tire inspections are crucial to ensure that your RV’s tires are properly inflated and in good condition. Rotation of the tires also helps in evenly distributing the wear and tear on the tires, thus increasing their lifespan.
  • Battery Checkups: Your RV’s battery is an important component, and regular checkups can help ensure that it is fully charged and in good health. A dead battery can leave you stranded and ruin your trip, so it’s best to get it checked regularly.
  • Brake Inspections: Brakes are a crucial component of any vehicle, and RVs are no different. Regular inspections of your RV’s brakes can identify any problems before they become major issues, ensuring that you can safely stop your vehicle when needed.
  • Roof Maintenance: Your RV’s roof is exposed to harsh weather and can be damaged easily. Regular maintenance, such as cleaning and sealing, can help keep your roof in good condition and prevent leaks from developing.
  • Plumbing and Water System Maintenance: Your RV’s plumbing and water system should be inspected regularly to ensure that there are no leaks, clogs, or damages. Keeping your water system in good condition is essential for hygienic living and optimal RV experiences.
  • Generator Service: If your RV is equipped with a generator, it’s important to have it serviced regularly to ensure that it’s reliable and operating efficiently.

By getting RV maintenance service regularly, you can ensure that your RV runs optimally and is safe for you and your passengers while you travel. This will save you a ton of money in the long run, as you avoid the need for many repairs and extend the lifespan of your unit.
