Quick RV Maintenance Tips for Those Short on Time

RV maintenance

Owning an RV is no minor thing. With large objects come
large responsibilities, from cleaning to maintaining. And large
responsibilities don’t have the reputation as being especially kind to your
free time.

If you want to do right by your RV and invest the least possible amount of time in it—while still
maintaining the RV’s quality—then you’ll have to find the smartest ways to
work. It’s not an excuse to be lazy; it merely means that you should know a
thing or two about RV maintenance so that you invest your time efficiently. And
to that end, we’d like to offer the following tips:

  • Keep a maintenance
    kit handy in the RV itself.
    Sure, you have a garage full of tools…but it’s
    far more efficient if you can simply go to the RV itself, pull out the
    maintenance kit, and get to work. That way there’s no looking around the
    garage, trying to find this tool and that tool. Instead, you can get down to
    business right away.
  • Maintain
    more often than not.
    What does this mean? It means that you’ll want to
    invest less time in maintenance over more frequent maintenance sessions. If you
    wait six months or a year to do anything to your RV, there’s a chance that some
    issues could pile up on you. If, however, you do a few minutes of maintenance a
    month or quarterly, you’ll find that these problems don’t pile up…giving a
    pleasant side effect of reducing your RV-related stress.
  • Keep the
    RV clean.
    It should go without saying, of course, but you’d be surprised at
    how many people struggle with RV maintenance problems that could have easily
    been prevented with regular cleaning. To avoid this, make sure your RV is
    clean, and as a bonus, make sure to keep the interior dry as well. A dry
    interior helps prevent issues like mildew buildup. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a
    pound of cure.
  • Build a
    routine.
    An inspection routine is a great way to make sure that you’re keeping
    track of all of your RV maintenance issues every single time you head out to do
    some maintenance. Not only will this help you identify issues earlier, but it
    will give you a solid basis upon which to work. Some of the things we do most
    efficiently are the small habits that we’ve learned over the years.
  • Look for
    underlying causes.
    Treating the “symptom” of RV maintenance can work well,
    but sometimes it’s only a cosmetic “lift” rather than actually solving the
    actual problem. To know how to best handle your RV’s maintenance, try to look
    for underlying causes to common problems. Not only will your solution be more
    efficient, but it will also save you future
    time by ensuring that these problems don’t come back to bite you.
