Preparing Your RV for Summer

As daylight extends its reach and the sun invites adventure, it’s time to prepare your recreational vehicle (RV) for the open road. Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or a first-time RV owner, proper preparation can help ensure a smooth journey filled with unforgettable memories.

Maintenance Tips to Ensure a Smooth RV Journey

Preparing your RV for summer adventures involves essential maintenance steps to help ensure a safe and enjoyable trip. Use the following tips to get your RV road-ready: woman in black dress standing beside white and blue rv trailer during daytime

  • Get your RV out of winter storage. If your RV was in storage during winter, it’s time to get it ready. Remove any protective coverings or tarps. Wash the exterior thoroughly, starting from the roof down. Inspect the roof for cracks, missing seals or caulking issues. Repair any damage promptly to prevent water leaks during your travels.
  • Check tire pressure and condition. After sitting idle, tire pressure tends to drop. Use a pressure gauge to check all tires and inflate them to the recommended level. Inspect tread and sidewalls for bulges, cracks or uneven wear. Replace worn tires if needed.
  • Inspect appliances and systems. Test all appliances (fridge, stove, AC, etc.) to ensure they function correctly. Sanitize the water system by flushing and treating tanks and lines with a bleach mixture. Check safety equipment like smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
  • Clean the interior. Declutter and clean inside compartments, wiping down surfaces to remove dust and debris. Air out your RV by opening windows, and check for damage caused by rodents or water leaks.
  • Review your RV insurance. Verify that your RV insurance coverage is current and tailored to your needs. Consider reviewing your auto insurance if you plan to tow your camper.

What Type of Insurance Does an RV Need?

RV insurance policies may include the following:

  • Collision insurance may help offset the expenses resulting from collisions.
  • Comprehensive insurance may help cover costs unrelated to a collision, such as theft.
  • Bodily injury and property damage liability may assist in covering the costs of property damage or bodily injuries you might unintentionally cause to others while driving your RV. It may also include legal expenses related to the accident.
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage may help cover the expenses for repairing or replacing your vehicle and your medical bills if you’re involved in an accident with an at-fault driver who lacks sufficient insurance.
