Summer Prep For Your Motor Home

You’ve been thinking about it for months; the first trip of the RV season but before you hit he road you may find that an inspection may be very beneficial and even save you money in the long run. So whether you are hitting a National Park, the beach, or even heading across the boarder to Mexico or Canada, following these suggestions is sure to make your trip a smoother one!

Take a walk around your motor home and do a thorough visual inspection. While doing this, check for rust on the exterior of the RV. Also check the roof for leaks. After you’ve performed a visual inspection on the interior of your motorhome take a look inside for water stains. Water stains could be a sign of a leaky roof.

It may prove to be beneficial to have a mechanic checkout your motorhome. An RV mechanic can easily check the brake system, change the oil, check and top off the fluids and even check the motor and tires. Having the tire levels even will do more to prevent uneven wear on your tires, and additionally, it will increase the fuel efficiency of your motor home.

Hop inside your RV and check for mold. Be sure to check everywhere as it is mold can easily hide, but frequently mold can be found on furniture and awnings. Because mold can be potentially dangerous to humans, do some research to determine the best way to clean the mold. Usually a bleach and water solution is sufficient, but make sure. Also wear gloves and a mask for greater safety.

Often during the off-season animals and insects will make your motorhome their home. Birds, mice, raccoons, ants, wasps and more have all been found in RVs. Do an inspection of your motor home to ensure this is not the case. Make sure you are careful as it is you do not want to harm these critters and you do not want them to harm you either.

Check all of your batteries to ensure they are all working properly. It is also always wise to keep extra batteries on board. It is also essential to check all smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they are all working properly. Even with the advancements in motor homes, they still require proper maintenance to ensure they are in full working order.

Check the headlights, both regular and bights. Replace bulbs if needed. Then check taillights, brake lights internal lights and display lights. Again, replace any bulbs that may require it. Also, many motor homes have a propane tank. If your RV has one, check it to make sure it is full and working properly.

You’re just about ready to hit the road but before you do, stock up. Check the refrigerator to make sure it is working properly. If it is, load it up! Also fill the cupboards with food. Grab the DVDs and games. Get some toilet paper, some soap and other bathroom essentials. Do you have it all? Have you checked everything? Well, get a move on!

Motor Home Summer Vacations

Motor Home Summer Vacations

There is nothing more American than a summer trip down the open road, with no particular destination in mind. For many, it’s a rite of passage to drive across the country, exploring the landscape via RV. It may not seem like a relaxing way to spend your vacation time, but there’s no better way to run away from your troubles than throwing out your planner, muting the cell phone, and giving your laptop a rest.

One of the main perks of recreational vehicles is that you can bring all the comforts of home with you, including plenty of extra passengers (friends and family), pets, a barbecue-anything that you need to have a good time. RVs provide the kind of freedom that is not available with cramped cars and hotel reservations. You can bring as much or as little as you want with you.

Another great reason to take a motor home trip for your summer vacation is the limitless flexibility you’ll find. You have the option of camping out in the open, saving a fortune on costly hotels, and you can always drive off the beaten path.

Perfectly planned out vacations can become stressful, defeating the entire purpose of a getaway. A motor home allows you to either break away from your itinerary or avoid one altogether. And if you do decide to get a spa treatment or use room service, most hotels offer parking for recreational vehicles.

Don’t let high gas prices dissuade you from plunging into a road trip. With a carefully considered budget, a rented or bought motor home can often save you money in the long run, especially if you want to explore multiple destinations on your trip.

Round trip tickets into one city can be pricey, and they don’t include lodging and the new excess luggage fees most airlines charge. If you have a pet or children, you might have to spend even more on qualified sitters. Splitting the price of an RV and gas is another great method to help reduce costs.

If you’re riding with friends or other family members, each chipping in a little can make a big difference. You also have the benefit of purchasing food from grocery stores and storing it in the fridge that most motor homes come equipped with, making RVs more cost effective than the initial figures might reveal.

But easily the best reason to take a recreational vehicle across the country is the chance to see and experience the surprises of the open road. The long drive will give you ample opportunity to explore new places that you won’t find on the maps. You’ll meet far more interesting people than you would in a hotel room, and you’ll come away with memorable experiences and stories to share for years to come.

Walking off a plane with a cramp in your foot and a bag of peanuts can never compare to driving through the wilderness with a group of your favorite people, watching as the world unfolds around you. So, the next time you plan your summer vacation, consider throwing out your itinerary, gathering up the kids and the dog, and renting or buying an RV. The world is waiting to be explored.

The next time you want to experience the great outdoors, try taking a road trip across America. A motor home trip offers flexibility, adventure, and can get you out of the rut of planned vacations. To start your motor home trip, visit
