Do You “Exercise” Your RV

If you are a motorhome owner, you are well aware of the amount of responsibility it can take to keep your rig in the best possible shape, not only while you’re using it, but, more importantly, when you’re not.

As much as you love you go RVing, you might not get to spend as much time traveling as you’d like. Or, maybe you are a full-timer and spend long periods of time hooked up. Something that you need to remember is that, just because you’re not driving your motorhome doesn’t mean that it doesn’t still need a little “exercise”.

If you don’t have the opportunity take your rig out at least every month or so, there a myriad of things that you can do to check the operation and function of your motorhome’s engine and equipment when you don’t get to use it as often as you’d like.
I found a great video that from RV Geeks that will help you run some monthly “soft” maintenance. Some of the items covered in the video below are specific to diesels, but many things are relevant to all motorhomes, whether diesel or gas. One thing to remember is that your engine and transmission are the most expensive pieces of equipment on any motorhome, it is certainly well worth your time and effort to care for them as thoroughly as possible.

So, the bottom line is that when you’re not using your motorhome, it’s a good idea to jump into your rig every now and then and give it a little attention. And hey, while you’re “exercising” your motorhome, why not retrofit your hatches with new doorlift and bedlift kits? They can both you a lot a headaches…literally.
