TECH TIPS

 

 Tech Tips

MAKE SURE THAT YOUR UNIT IS WINTERIZED BEFORE PUTTING AWAY FOR THE WINTER.  ALSO BE SURE TO REMOVE ALL CAN GOODS AND BEVERAGES.

 

It is also good to leave dump valves open and replace cap with vented waste valve cap.  This will keep your tank dry and odor free.  It will aslo prevent critters from getting into your waste tanks.

 

We do not recommend tarping units for the winter, as this may cause wear and chafing on roof and seams.  We do recommend that you give you unit a little tilt while storing for the winter so water can run off quickly.  You should also check every couple of weeks for vent and seam leaks.

 

 

 

SLIDE OUT MAINTENANCE

 

Most slide out systems are designed to be low maintenance, but cleaning and lubing are very important.  It is just as important to actuate the slide once or twice a month, Make sure the temp will allow for this procedure (make sure slide is not frozen in the in position).  Never leave your slide out in the out position in the winter.  Wipe all the debries off the roof befor closing the slide for the season.

 

When waxing your RV never put wax on your vinyl graphics.  We recommend using 303 Protectant on the graphics it has a UV protectant for the graphic.

 

Fall Camping Season is here.

You should start getting your black and gray tanks cleaned for the season.  After you empty the black and/or gray tanks you should dump in a gallon of cheap liquid laundry soap and one gallon of cheap bleach and about 5 gallons of hot water.  Drive to or from the campsite and dump.  This should sanitize your tank(s) along with cleaning the sensors.

 

When starting the furnace up it is a good time for cleaning furnace and  gas leak testing, for that matter anytime of year is a good time.  Use soapy water or sniffer, NEVER A FLAME, this should be done two times a year. Check your lp and carbon monoxide detectors too.  We also recommend that you vacuum out the ducts and floor registers, especially if you have pets.

 

Fall camping season is a fantastic time of year.  

Be sure to watch your awning with winds and heavy rains. Don't forget to clean your awning and dry it before closing up for the season.

 

We recommend that you air up all low or flat tires before using and storing. Max pressure is stamped on the wall of the tire.  All tires should be aired to this max pressure. Be sure to check all your tires and valve stems for dry rot and cracking. (Don't just look at the surface, look between the treads too) When storing your rv do not use wood by tires, the wood draws moisture out of the tires and will dry rot them faster.

 

 

 

While the weather is still nice, it is a good time to wash and treat the rubber roof.  Look at all the vents, AC lid and seams for cracks or missing sealant.  Make proper repairs before putting away for the Season.  Make sure when you are cleaning and repairing your roof that you use only rubber roof products.  Do not use Miracle water sealers they will harm the rubber roof.  (We do not recommend any type of paint on products for the rubber roof either)

 

 

Check batteries for proper charge 12.4 volts.  Do Not depend on your converter only.

Batteries should be charged monthly to maintain longevity.

 

It is recommended to spray a little lock key lube or WD40 in all keylocks to stop corrosion.

 

 

 

It is recommended that all boat trailers do a grease and pack before storing for the season.  This will get all the water out of the bearings so they don't rust.  This is also a good time to flush the hydrolics system and put new brake fluid in.
