Spring is right around the corner, which means it’s time to plan a road trip! Whether you’re on your way to your favorite coastal destination, taking a trip through the beautiful countryside, or just exploring with no particular landing point in mind, an RV provides a comfortable, luxurious way to enjoy your trip.

As you begin prepping for the spring and summer seasons, be sure to check these areas for safe travels:

Inspect your tires. Nothing puts a dent in your journey like a flat tire. As your camper or RV is sitting unused, it is possible for tires to deflate or even crack over time.

Clean your water system. RV antifreeze is an excellent way to keep your water tank, pipelines, and pump safe from the frigid winter temperature, but it’s important to completely flush antifreeze from your water system. Be sure to dispose of it in a way that adheres to state and federal regulations.

Check for mold. If your RV was stored outside, it may have experienced moisture over the winter season. Check thoroughly for mold or have a professional inspect your vehicle.

Replace your smoke detector batteries and carbon monoxide detector. Safety first! This is also a good time to check your fire extinguisher gauge to be sure it’s still full.

Check your propane system for leaks. Lines can dry out, become bent, or experience damage from rodents.

After you ensure the safety of your vehicle, it’s important to check with your insurance agent and update your RV insurance if necessary. Contact us today to make sure your policy is up to date and covers all of your necessary liabilities.
