RV for Spring Camping


  1. Batteries of your RV: If you remove the batteries of your RV for Winter Storage, it is time to fix them back. Stored batteries lose 10% current per month of storage. Conduct a battery conducting test to be sure the status of your batteries.
  2. Plumbing System of your RV: If you used a winterizing solvent for your water system , it is time to flush out your RV with fresh water and Summer-ize it! Inspect your water lines for leaks or damages as well.
  3. Electrical System of your RV: Conduct polarity tests and electrical output test to recognise any damages to the Electrical system.
  4. Tires: Akin to the battery, the tire loses air pressure (roughly 2-3 psi per month) when you store your RV for winter.  Test the tires of  your RV for  inflation gauge rate and adjust this with respect to the manufacturer’s units (based on your RV load).
  5. Fluid Checks: Check if the oil you feed your RV Engine is right, inspect the exhaust of your RV generator, Engine coolant, brake fluid as well as transmission fluid levels.
  6. RV Roof: It is usual for RV roofs to be seamed or patched right after winter, hence inspect your Roof for leaks or seams to patch your RV roof properly. Click here to check how to patch your Roof like a veteran RVer!

According to RV veteran Mark Polk,

“There are lots of checks that need to be performed on the RV for a safe and worry free camping season, but some are more important than others”.
