Let’s take a moment to cover a few maintenance items on your RV that need to be addressed on a periodic basis.
A primary element of RV maintenance is regularly checking fluid levels, including engine oil, brake fluid, engine coolant, transmission fluid and power steering fluid. Make it part of your pre-trip routine to check these important fluids and top off any that are low. It’s also a good idea to check these fluids on a monthly basis if you haven’t used your RV lately or if it is in storage.
While you’re at it, also check the battery to make sure it is free of corrosion and has an adequate water level (if it is not a maintenance-battery) and the air filter to make sure it’s clean.
Fluids and filters should be regularly changed. Check your RV owner’s manual for its maintenance requirements and schedule.
