Recently, we have been visiting a site called “Everything About RVing”. This website offers a ton of information regarding all aspects of the RV lifestyle and encourages its visitors to contribute their knowledge and experience by submitting articles.
Over the weekend, we finished an article called “10 Pre-Trip Operational Checks for Your RV” and thought it would be fun to submit if for publication. We sent it to Everything About RVing on Saturday evening and were surprised when they e-mailed us on Sunday to let us know they had published it!
Here is a snippet from the article:
No matter how much you prepare your RV for a road trip, there always seems to be at least one thing, often something obvious, that is overlooked. The following are 10 essential pre-trip checks to keep you on the road!
10. Turn on the refrigerator at least 24 hours prior to your departure. This will allow plenty of time for cooling and help you detect any issues.
9. Make sure that the gray and black water tanks have been emptied and the appropriate chemicals have been added. The less waste in the tanks the lighter your rig will be however, leaving at least ¼ of a tank of water will help the chemicals dissolve.
8. Flip your switches! Switches for your tanks, water pump, propane and appliances should all be in working order. Broken switches can be replaced cheaply and easily.
7. Fire up your generator, even if you won’t be using it. Let it run for at least 15 minutes and check for oil or gas leaks. If your generator has an altitude adjustment, make sure that it is set appropriately.
