When the kids start counting down how many days they have left in school, you know that summer adventures are right around the corner. Because that might be a little ways off, you still have time to get your RV in order for your next big family road trip. If you're a family of road warriors, use these tips to make sure your vehicle is ready.
1. Fix the air conditioning so that you aren't suffering
The air conditioning in your RV will be so necessary if you want to make it through your summer road trip without the kids complaining. Truthfully, everyone has the right to complain if you're inside a stuffy RV in the middle of summer with a broken air conditioner.
The best thing to do is replace the air conditioner in the off-season if you know that it needs it. You can look at a lot of different RV air conditioning models and quickly start to figure out which is the best for your RV. Pay attention to the mach series and type, and make sure that it is suited for your RV. Contact a supplier who sells products like the RV Coleman Mach 1 Powersaver AC for more information on what kind of air conditioner you should look for.
Be thankful if you don't need a new air conditioner, but still get it inspected and change the filters or recharge it before you hit the road.
2. Inspect and tinker with the important amenities
Outside of the air conditioning, make sure that things like the oven and refrigerator are also working how they should. You will need to get the fuel sources checked and should also do little things like change light bulbs and smoke detectors.
You can even get your trailer hooked up with Wi-Fi, which might be a great option.
3. Don't give your RV a wash — give it a deep and complete cleaning
Being in a dirty RV isn't a pleasant experience. Since the RV is basically your hotel, make sure you pamper yourself by getting it professionally cleaned and detailed. This way both your carpets and your paint job will be fresh, and it will smell great.
4. Be sure everything is good under the hood
Your RV engine and battery are so important to power this large vehicle. Get the parts under the hood inspected so that they run they are supposed to. Make sure your computer system also works so you can operate things like the air conditioner and outlets from the driver's cockpit.
These tips will help you get your RV ready this season.Share
