What are UV rays?
In today’s media, we frequently hear about the importance of safeguarding our bodies from the harmful effects of UV rays. But what exactly are these UV rays? UV stands for Ultraviolet, a type of radiation that is invisible to the naked eye and emanates from the sun, tanning beds, and sunlamps. UV rays have the potential to harm skin cells, underscoring the necessity of proper sunscreen and lotions for skin protection. It’s crucial to note that safeguarding against UV rays is a year-round concern, extending beyond the scorching summer months. You might be wondering, what does this have to do with your RV? Allow us to explain.
The influence of UV rays on your RV can lead to significant exterior damage. Over time, if not managed and cared for appropriately, UV rays can deteriorate the exterior finish, resulting in cracking, fading, and peeling. Additionally, they can leave behind a chalky residue on the surface. This not only affects the aesthetics of your RV but can also lead to functional issues and a reduction in resale value.
UV rays can also contribute to the drying out of sealants and damage to the paint. Preventing RV roof leaks is of paramount importance. The best way to achieve this is through regular inspections. Roof leaks can introduce not only mold and mildew issues but also compromise the structural integrity of your RV over time. So, how can you protect your RV’s paint from the sun’s relentless rays? When your RV is not in use, aim to park it under covered storage or shield it with a tarp. If these options are not available, seek out shaded parking spots. But there’s more you can do to prolong your RV’s life.
