You must never forget these steps when prepping an RV for this camping season.
- Exterior Cleaning (Including Exterior Storage)
- Interior Cleaning
- Dewinterize Batteries, Fluids, and Water Tanks
- Check Propane Tanks
- Check Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
1) Exterior Cleaning (Including Exterior Storage)
Wash the RV’s exterior thoroughly to remove any dirt and grime on the RV’s body, tires, and compartments. Don’t forget to wash the roof using a soft brush with a long handle. Start with the rooftop, working your way down. Also, clean the exterior storage space.
2) Interior Cleaning
Open the camper and start cleaning the interior, starting with the ceiling. Remove all the dust and cobwebs from the RV interior. Also, get rid of dust accumulated on the seats. Use hot water, vinegar, soap, and baking soda to clean dirty surfaces.
3) Dewinterize Batteries, Fluids, and Water Tanks
If you happen to winterize your camper for storage during winters, you have to de-winterize it. Flush out the entire water system in the RV until you remove the antifreeze traces. Don’t forget to do the same for the batteries and any other fluid found in the RV.
4) Check Propane Tanks
Check the propane tanks to ensure that there are no leaks. You can open the valves and smell or spray a soapy mixture around the regulator and valves to check for leaks. The soapy liquid will bubble if there are leaks. Fix the leaks and refill the propane tanks.
5) Check Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Inspect the smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they are working. Replace the old batteries with new ones to make the devices work to their total capacity. Once you do that, check if the fire extinguisher is in good working condition.
Enjoy Your RV!
