Independence Day Readiness

June 26, 2019


It’s the busiest time of year for RV camping so hopefully, you reserved your campsite months ago. But before you get your motorhome connected to hookups, leveled and slideouts open, there’s a lot of work to do.

Going over a pre-camp inspection is a good idea to try to reduce any troubles that could arise and take up your vacation time. Just like the checklist you went through when you took your RV out of winter storage, you can do a speedier version of this list.

Water Systems

Flush and sterilize water tanks and hoses. Add potable water and make sure your pump is on. Check all filters. To get your Four Winds® ready for vacation, be sure to remember the outdoor shower when checking hoses. Other water-related systems to pay close attention to include:

Four Winds® Class C

  • Whole coach water filtration system select models
  • Tankless water heater select models
  • Outside shower select models

Energy Systems

Batteries, appliances, and engine should be checked to make sure they are all in good working order and have enough juice when applicable. The Venetian® Class A can handle a lot of power. Here’s a small sample of some of those higher-end systems you will want to check:

Venetian® Class A Diesel

  • Energy management system
  • Onan® diesel generator on power slideout
  • 100-watt solar charging system with power controller

Tires, roof and windows

Checking the external components of your motorhome is just as important as the internal parts. After all, this will not only be your home while you are on vacation but your transportation as well. Checking tire pressure and looking for any visible signs of sidewall bulges or cuts could save a headache from changing a tire on the side of the highway. Doing a quick but thorough check of the roof and windows for any signs of damage is a good idea to stay on top of any maintenance you may need to do. Keep your Hurricane® safe from storms by checking for leaks around the inside and outside of your coach.

Hurricane Class A

  • Welded tubular aluminum roof and sidewall cage construction
  • Premium one-piece TPO roof
  • Frameless dual pane windows optional

Once you have your motorhome inspected and readied the only thing left to do is enjoy your trip. Have a safe and happy 4th!
