With summers end it’s time for many RVers to put their RVs in winter storage. The main system you need to winterize is the water system. This becomes very important for storage in our cold climate as freezing water can burst your pipes, break seals, and end up costing plenty to replace everything. Give us a call and we’ll look after all those complicated steps to ensure your unit is safe for the winter. We will drain all of your holding tanks and plumbing including the hot water tank and install antifreeze in all lines and holding tanks to prevent freezing. There are a lot of things to do and it must be done correctly. Leave it to us.
Slide Outs & Seal Repairs
A camper slide-out has completely changed the game when it comes to maximizing the confined living quarters of an RV. With a slide out, you can add much needed space to your RV living space when you reach your destination, and all it takes is the push of a button. But, like any RV component, there’s potential for malfunction and the occasional troubleshooting.
For any number of reasons, your camper slide-out might take on an unpleasant grinding noise when being extended or retracted. Apart from the disagreeable sound this causes, that grinding is also bad for the camper slide-out itself, as it’s likely the result of faulty parts and/or debris.
Slide outs also have a tendency to jam or leak at the seals. OR the cables might jam or gears jam.
Whatever the problem might be that is causing your slide out problem, we can fix it for you.
It is also important to have the slide out checked and regularly maintained. Don;t find your problem when you arrive at your camp site. It will ruin your trip.
The first hint of leaks in the RV will usually be along the outside edges of the roof. Here, and around any roof-mounted objects (A/Cs, exhaust stacks, vents), sheet-metal screws hold the metal sheeting to the walls and roof rafters. The screws are usually coated with sealer but this hardens over time. Stains will appear inside the unit before you realize you have a leak.
Using a quality rubber-based coating will prevent or repair many of these leaks if the damage hasn’t gone too far. We would advise applying a coating to the roof every year to avoid having to completely replace the roof sheeting. Unless you choose to replace the roof covering yourself, this job can cost thousands of dollars, especially if the material beneath the roof covering is damaged.
We will examine your roof and determine with you if there is a problem and how we can solve it.
RV awnings are a nice luxury to have for the summer months, when a little shade could mean the difference between cool comfort and sweltering misery. Unfortunately, those same summer months are subject to strong winds, thunderstorms and other unpredictable weather patterns that threaten awnings which may be useful — but are also known to be somewhat delicate.
The sun is also very hard on your awning and can destroy it quickly by drying it out and cracking it with damaging UV rays.
It’s important to address any issues with your awning immediately, and to check your awning at the beginning of each season for any tears or holes. It’s far more convenient to discover awning damage during a pre-trip check, rather then when you’re out in the elements when water begins leaking through the imperfect fabric. Obviously, these holes or tears will allow water and debris to leak through. Not only that, but a good gust of wind could easily increase the size of a tear or hole, making it more difficult, if not impossible, to complete your necessary RV awning repair.
Bring your rig into us for an Awning Examination and we will repair those little problems before they become BIG ones.
If your awning is already past the point of repair, give us a call and we will replace that old awning with a new one for you. While we’re at it we’ll also check the spring tension and trip levers, so your entire awning is in perfect working condition.
