How To Protect Your RV Between Camping Trips

Jun 1, 2022 | RV Tips, RVs

If you are an RV Owner, it is critical that you know not only how to take care of your RV while travelling and camping, but also how to protect your RV between trips!

Unfortunately, many RV Owners who are not aware of how they should be protecting their unit are faced with costly repair bills to fix easily preventable damage. 

We want to help you avoid that situation. Keep reading to discover 3 key things you can do to protect your RV between camping trips!

1. Install Maxxair Covers Over Vents

Installing Maxxair covers over the vents in your RV helps to keep air flowing through. This is especially valuable when the RV is not being used between camping trips! Maxxair covers work by reducing condensation. In turn, rather than entering a muggy or stale-smelling RV ahead of your next camping trip, you enter a fresh, well-ventilated unit.

If you are interested in purchasing Maxxair covers, please contact us today. 

2. Inspect all Seals and Rubber Membranes

Tree branches, hail, heavy rain, and weathering can damage your RV’s seals and membranes over time. Unfortunately, damaged seals can allow water and debris to penetrate your RV, leading to sometimes catastrophic damage (which can be quite costly to repair). That’s why one of the most important things you can do to protect your RV between camping trips is inspect all seals and rubber membranes. 

If you notice any areas where a touch-up may be needed, a product we strongly recommend is Dicor’s Self-Levelling Lap Sealant. Alternatively, you could bring it in to RV Mobile Edmonton to have us inspect and reseal your RV for you!

3. Inspect your RV Wheels and Tires

Similar to your car, the wheels and tires on your RV are subject to wear and tear over time, and if left unattended, this can pose be extremely dangerous. Protecting your RV investment involves proactive measures, and one crucial aspect is regular inspections of its wheels and tires. That’s why it is smart to protect your RV by having its wheels and tires inspected between camping trips!

Uneven wear can be diagnosed by an RV Mobile Edmonton Technician to determine potential causes including:

  • worn bushings,
  • bent axles,
  • bent spindles,
  • broken belts in the tires,
  • and more.

To ensure the ongoing safety and optimal performance of your RV, we encourage you to schedule a comprehensive wheel and tire inspection with our experts. By identifying and addressing potential issues early on, you not only enhance the safety of your RV but also extend the lifespan of these critical components.
