Checklists are an easy way to make sure nothing is overlooked or forgotten. RV pre-trip checks are one of the most important checklists to have on-hand and follow. I cannot tell you how many times I see damaged RV steps, TV antennas, power cords and awnings simply because an owner forgot to check things prior to leaving.
I could probably list 25 items that should be on a pre-trip checklist, but today I want to concentrate on what I consider to be the top 5 essential RV pre-trip checks to make prior to driving the RV. Following a simple checklist like this can save you time, money and headaches.
The first item on my list is tires. Two major problems with RV tires are over-inflation and under-inflation and both can result in tire failure. When your RV sits in storage the tires lose air pressure at a rate of 2 to 3 psi per month. It is extremely important you check and inflate the tires to the proper pressure before leaving on a trip.
