1. Check Your Roof
One of the first things you’ll want to do for the spring is to get up on top of your RV and check the roof. It’s a good idea to take a cleaning solution and give the roof a good scrub so that you can see any potential problem areas more easily. Take note of any dips or sags and check around your AC units to be sure there are no leaks.
2. Kitchen Refresh
Before you start loading up your refrigerator and freezer with goodies, you’ll want to give it a good clean. Spray the interiors with an all-purpose cleaner, allow to sit for a few minutes, and then wipe down with a dry rag. Repeat the same process for your countertops and microwave. For the oven, take out the rack and clean the interior with a powerful cleaner on a scrubbing sponge.
3. Test Your Awning
Before you open your awning for the first time this year, be sure to clear it of any debris that might have collected during storage. When you open it, do so slowly to ensure the fabric doesn’t get caught on anything and tear. Once it’s open, you can use a power washer to deep clean the material, or a leaf blower to remove any remaining debris. If you see any problem spots, contact your RV dealer for repair.
4. Reseal Windows and Doors
This step is a useful precaution for those who like to go the extra mile. Buy a sealant, like silicone, and seal around all the windows and exterior doors before heading out on your next adventure. You may even want to seal around your AC units on the roof. If you have any questions about potential leaks or problem areas, your RV dealer can help!
5. Check Tanks and Plumbing
Before you get to the campground, you’ll want to check your water system for any leaks. You can do this by filling your water tank and then running the water in the kitchen and then the bathroom. Check the piping along the way, if possible, and contact your dealer if you notice any leaks.
6. Change Tires
Depending on how much traveling you did last year, it’s probably time to change your RV’s tires. Your RV dealer can help you find the perfect tires at the best prices, so be sure to work with them for this spring cleaning step!
