Caring for your RV is the key to ensuring it has a long life and you get the most use out of it. But if you’re new to RVing or are used to doing things one way, it’s likely you might be taking care of your RV using old school techniques that are harder than they need to be. RV care can be easy and even fun. These three RV care tips are a starting point for you to take care of your RV in the easiest way possible.
Use Ice In Your Black Tank
Ok, so you don’t want your black tank to freeze over the winter, but adding a bag of ice to your RV’s black tank while you’re on your way to empty it helps to loosen any gunk stuck to the sides of the tank. The movement of the ice acts like a scrubby, except you don’t have to get your hands dirty. once you get to the dumping station simply drains your tank and the ice will leave along with everything else.
Know What Your RV Is Made Of
Here’s what we mean by this: know what your RV seals, caulking, and construction are made of. This helps you choose your best cleaning chemicals (those that won’t negatively impact your seals). You can also look for products that are particularly made for your RV’s materials.
One of the most important things to pay attention to is your RV’s seals and slides. Ensure you aren’t causing these to break down as this could result in leaks.
By regularly cleaning your RV after each trip you ensure you stay on top of keeping your RV clean and taken care of. You don’t want to vacation for an entire season and then find that after each trip your mess has built on previous messes. Save yourself trouble at the end of the year and clean your RV after each trip. This includes inside and outside.
