Before the weather gets too nice and you want to take your RV out for its first spin of the season, you need to make sure you aren't in need of RV repair. Here are signs you need to take your recreational vehicle into the auto dealership for RV servicing or more extensive TLC.

The roof is leaking

Your RV's roof shouldn't spring a leak, but if it does, you're in for some serious RV repair. An RV roof is not like a traditional car roof, and is more like the roof of a mobile home and can become worn out with weight or time. Take the RV into the auto dealership for RV repair if you see active leaks in the roof, see water stains along the ceiling or upper walls, or if your RV roof is torn or dented in.

The tires are balding

Balding RV tires need to be replaced, and while you're at it, have the RV servicing department rotate good tires, check the RV brakes for a good braking response, and make sure the RV is ready to go on the road. Balding tires will make traction harder to accomplish and can cause a blowout on the road, which can be especially bad for a larger vehicle like an RV.

The RV is having plumbing issues

Your RV does have a minor plumbing system and should be able to flush a toilet, operate a shower, and allow for running water in the kitchen or prep sink. If you forgot to have the plumbing winterized, you may have a burst pipe or other issues, which can make the plumbing unreliable when you do get ready to travel for the summer.

If you have a clogged plumbing issue or see a leak or signs of other plumbing issues in the RV, then RV repair is needed before you can get back on the road again. Your RV servicing department at the auto dealer you bought your RV from should be able to assist you.

Your RV has electrical issues

Other issues you can come up with in your RV are electrical ones. You should check all lights, speakers, and any units that use electricity in your RV to make sure everything is working. If you stored your RV for the season and worry about rodents getting into wires, then you should have RV repair done on any affected wiring before you hit the road. The last thing you need is electrical issues that require more extensive repairs when you're already in the middle of a camping trip.
