Just like with any vehicle, regular maintenance of your RV helps keep it running right and prevents expensive emergency maintenance down the road. RV maintenance includes routine checks and preventative measures. Read the following tips to see why you need to keep your RV in top-notch shape.
It’s Required by the Warranty
RVs often require scheduled maintenance to be performed by the manufacturer. This information is located in the owner’s manual, providing you with a routine maintenance schedule to help keep your RV running smoothly. Failing to keep up with the scheduled maintenance can void your warranty.
Unlike other cars, RVs offer the service of a home on wheels. Know prior to camping how many watts you can use at a time and regularly check the voltage available to you using a line voltage monitor. An acceptable voltage is between 110 to 127; exceeding this amount will blow your breaker.
It Holds Precious Cargo
Any accident is scary, and regular, preventative maintenance can help avoid them. Routine upkeep is the best way to ensure you won’t have a tire problem. Improper inflation is the number one factor in tire failure, so check and double check to make sure you’re at the maximum PSI.
RV maintenance will help keep your family safe. If you aren’t sure how to properly take care of your RV, find a local auto body shop and ask for their assistance.

Car accidents occur in a variety of ways and poor car maintenance can be one of the causes. If you try to save money by doing your own car repair or going to an unknown body shop, you may only exacerbate the damage. The following are a list of safety issues that can result from an inexperienced mechanic repairing your car.
If your car pulls to either side or the steering wheel shakes, your car may have been misaligned. This is most often due to improper tire installation and can cause erratic driving.
Improper Body Panel Replacement
This can be dangerous for individuals inside the car, exposing them to engine parts or fumes and causing the airbag to fail during an accident. Improper windshield installation will likely result in cracks over time.
The engine of a car is made up of dozens of parts that need to be put back together properly. Without auto body repair experience, it’s easy to inadvertently put the engine back together incorrectly, causing problems for your car.

Good auto body repair shops have computers which make accurate measurements to ensure precise structural alignment. Without this, your car may be improperly reassembled, resulting in tire wear and malfunctioning front-end components.
Performing your own car repairs or taking it to a fly-by-night repair shop might end up costing you more in the long run. For excellent car repair, find a body shop with a good reputation and quality auto parts.
