Keeping up with your RV's maintenance doesn't have to be a difficult , lets start out 5 simple things to keep your RV happy!

1. Make sure to ALWAYS close your slide-outs, vents, and awnings during heavy precipitation. This is very important because keeping your sliding, vents, and awning out during a big storm can lead to leaking, if not dealt with properly it can lead to all kinds of problems, such as rotting.

2. Start checking out your water hook-ups for leaking anywhere. If you are not sure if your water hook-up has a leak turn on your faucet, your water pump should turn on, then turn off your faucet if your water pump continues to run for a period of time you have some kind of crack.

3. You also want to check your roof along with your seals for any cracks. Cracks can lead to leaking. Leaking is never good for your RV, therefore you want to check regularly for cracks and leaks, especially after precipitation. If you catch the leaking early it can help you save money instead of trying to replace all kinds of rot.
