It’s summertime, which means the kids are out of school, and it’s time to get the RV camper ready for your next trip. But before you get the family loaded and ready to go, there are a few things you’ll want to make sure to take care of first.
At Don Temple Storage, we are here to help, which is why we have put together this RV camper checklist before a road trip, which all RV owners should follow as standard protocol.
Check Your Tires
Flat tires are a pain for anyone but can be even more so if you’re driving an RV camper. Rather than starting on your adventures to find out you have a flat, grab your pressure gauge and check each of your tires before your trip begins. Not only is it more convenient this way, but you are also helping to protect your family’s safety.
Check For Leaks
RVs tend to be susceptible to water damage due to all of the different moving parts. You should regularly be checking your RV camper for leaks, but especially before a big trip. It’s better to find out ahead of time than when it’s too late, and you’re stuck with it out in the middle of nowhere.
Check Your Trailer Connection
If you plan on towing, you will always need to make sure to check your trailer connection. Check your tow hitch set up a minimum of two times before driving each time. It’s dangerous, after all, to your family as well as other drivers around you.
Check For Hazards
There are minor hazards that can turn into more significant problems if not addressed early on. Ensure your RV’s stairs are in, leveling blocks are removed, and the antenna is down. While these things might seem small, it’s not uncommon to see them driving around on the road. Don’t let that be you, and check for these things preemptively.
Another seemingly obvious but essential thing to look out for is to make sure that you are not connected to any electricity or sewage lines before driving away. Unquestionably you can imagine how messy of a situation this can become.
