Is there anything more exciting than seeing the sun emerging from behind never-ending clouds? It seems like spring’s arrival has been much too long in the making, as we’ve waited months for the weather to warm up. Many of us are bursting with excitement to experience all the sights and sounds Earth has to offer. You want to ensure you can hit the road without any issues, so you need to know three things to do before taking your RV out of winter storage.
Refill the Tires
Your RV’s tires are some of its most important parts, as they literally help you get from one place to another. The tires have likely deflated a bit. Tire pressure changes with any fluctuations in temperature; the rubber can stretch and shrink, affecting the viability of your tires. It’s a good idea to check your tire pressure and refill or replace your tires.
Drain the Antifreeze
Another important thing to do before taking your RV out of winter storage is to drain the antifreeze. This great product prevents the headache of a burst pipe in your RV. However, if you are going to head out for the spring and summer, remove all of that antifreeze from your RV’s pipes. Flush out the pipes with fresh water until the antifreeze is completely gone and the water runs clear.
Test the Batteries
We know you want to get on the road, but you should double-check and test your RV’s batteries. If you haven’t utilized your RV in a while, the battery is likely low on juice.
Once you make sure your batteries work, you’re ready to head out. Are you looking for an RV hauling company you can trust to get your vehicle from one place to the next? At Star Fleet Trucking, we work with the best drivers who pride themselves on timeliness, safety, and dependability.
