Thought I'd start a checklist of basic springtime maintenance on the rv. Other than cleaning. Join in with your tips.


-replace batteries in smokes and CO2's
-check tires
-clean plug end on shore cord
-Check and caulk roof if needed
-check generator
-check lights
-grease hitch and hitch parts
-check propane lines....use windex on all visible pipe fittings and run stove
-check fridge vent for debris
-run fridge
-run heat
-run ac
-replace water filter
-replace anode rod or reinstall plug in water heater
-make sure cooking supplies are in order(grill, fire forks, pie makers, etc)
GO CAMPING

Don't forget to drain all the anti freeze out of all your lines before you leave and change your water filter
