It's the hottest time of year here in RVA. In recent weeks temperatures have reached the 90s and even surpassed 100 degrees some days. Unfortunately, this heat can have a major effect on your RV. At RV Service of VA, the service issues that we see most during this time of year are broken-down A/C units and refrigerators. This can be a huge problem for many families, especially those who are gearing up for their big summer trip.
So, before your family heads out for your summer vacation, here are 3 things that we recommend you do to ensure that you have a cool and stress-free trip...
1. Have Your RV Serviced Regularly
The best way to prevent service issues of any kind is to ensure your RV is being serviced regularly. These services include:
2. Start Preparing For Your Trip Early
The biggest mistake we see customers make is that they wait until the week of a big trip to prepare their RV for the road. This creates a huge problem if there is a service issue that needs to be fixed, and this is why we recommend that you start preparing your RV at least 2 weeks before your trip. Preparations include cycling your appliances, checking tire pressure, ensuring all interior and exterior lights work, etc.
3. Anticipate Obstacles & Plan Ahead
COVID has led to a surge in RV activity in general, which means that here at RV Service of VA, we are busier than ever. This limits our ability to schedule same day service appointments, which is why it’s so important to start preparing your motorhome weeks before your trip. This way if there is, in fact, a service issue, we have ample time to book your appointment and get your RV repaired and ready to hit the road.
