Essential Fall Maintenance for Your RV

Get started on your Essential Fall RV Maintenance by Cherry Capital RV.As the fall season dawns upon Northern Michigan, RV travelers find themselves enchanted by the changing landscapes. But with this beautiful transformation comes the responsibility of adapting your RV to the changing conditions. The brisk air, the colorful leaves, and the occasional downpour necessitate a thorough check-up of your RV.

Heating System: Your RV becomes your cozy retreat from the chilly atmosphere. Before embarking on your journey, ensure your heating system is functioning optimally. Dust off vents, remove any obstructions, and perhaps get a professional opinion if the system hasn’t been used in a while.

Inspect Seals: Temperature fluctuations can be harsh on your RV’s seals. A careful check around windows, doors, and the roof is crucial. Seal any gaps, preventing unwanted cold drafts and potential water leaks.

Tire Health: The roads can be slick with rain or hidden piles of wet leaves. Your RV’s tires should have adequate tread and be inflated correctly. Regularly inspect for signs of wear, and remember, adequately maintained tires are crucial for safe travel.

Battery: Cold can be harsh on your battery. A routine check ensures that it doesn’t give out when you need it the most. Clean connections and consider insulating it if you’re expecting particularly cold nights.

Winterize Your Plumbing: The threat of freezing is very real as we edge closer to winter. Preparing your plumbing, ensuring your pipes are insulated, and antifreeze is appropriately used can save you a lot of potential headaches.

Cherry Capital’s Tip: Our accessories and parts page offers a plethora of tools and items designed to maintain and enhance your RV’s performance during fall. With the right equipment and a little foresight, your RV will be more than ready for your autumn adventures.
