You’ve just returned home from a great camping trip, hopefully here at Maple Lakes, and it’s time to unload the RV. This is a good time to get your RV ready for its next trip. There are several things you can do when setting up for your next RV adventure which are listed below. The people from RV Education 101 have helpful videos to walk you through many of the processes and that’s where we found this helpful list of items to take care of as soon as you get home.
1. Clean – Give your RV a good dusting and vacuum it well. Wipe of the counters and the appliances. Check for anything that will need repair before your next trip.
2. Water – Drain all water from the system if you’re going to be parked for more than a month.
3. Repairs – Fix anything on your list that will need attention. The little things can become big things so taking care of them now is a good idea.
4. Empty Fridge – Give it a good scrub and leave the doors open for good ventilation.
5. Check batteries – Check all your batteries throughout the system including your truck, trailer, or motorhome.
6. Check Tires – Make sure the inflation pressure matches the manufacturers suggestions and only check them when they are cold.
7. Restock – Replace all non-perishables such as toilet paper, coffee filters, and holding tank treatment.
8. Laundry – Wash and replace your bed, bath, and kitchen linens.
9. Safety – check your smoke detectors and fire extinguishers throughout the RV.
This is a start and you can add your own particular items to the list. It’s helpful if you write these down and print off the list to go by as you work. We want your RV travels to be safe and memorable. Making sure you’re ready to go can give you the freedom to go when you want to because the RV is ready to roll.
