Globe and Mail: Tips on taking care of your RV in the winter

From the bloggers at Globe and Mail.

Steven Paul, president of Test Drive Technologies, performs vehicle inspection services for snowbirds in St. Louis, Mo. He suggests the following RV care tips for winter campers:

1. Keep up to date on routine maintenance of your generator and charging system.

The last thing you want to happen is the power to go out in the extreme cold when you don’t have a backup plan.

2. Keep snow off the top of your coach.

In the extreme cold, it likely will not melt from snowfall to snowfall. Snow that piles up on top of your coach adds a substantial amount of weight, which can lead to leaks when it thaws.

3. Be sure to clear off any snow or ice that may have accumulated on the tops of the slideouts.

You do not want snow or ice to get under your slide seals and then melt after being stowed. It could run down the inner walls and rot out the floors.
