Keeping your RV in tip-top shape for adventure isn’t just keeping the tires inflated and the electrical system charging (although that never hurts!). It’s also about keeping warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and not have any funky odors that have guests asking, “Did someone clean a fish in here?”
A few annual housekeeping chores can go a long way to ensuring months of trouble-free operation when it comes to your ventilation system and preventing moisture from accumulating in places that are supposed to stay dry. After all, you want to live alongside Mother Nature – not invite her inside your RV to cause trouble! Here are a few simple steps you can take to make sure you go down the road in harmony.
Before you go up on top of your RV, go inside and remove the vent screen from your vents – check both the bathroom and kitchen areas. If there is dust and dirt, or in case of grease in the kitchen vent, put the screens in a sink of soapy water and let them soak. You’ve got a date up top.
One way to make sure that no water gets inside your RV is to head upstairs – to the roof. You’ll want to be prepared as you make your annual roof inspection. Screwdrivers to remove vent caps? Check. Caulk and some cleaning cloths? Check. Perhaps some special sealing tape like EternaBond, too. Once you have your supplies, you are ready for a careful inspection of every single seam and opening on the roof.
