Spring Cleaning: Prepping Your Motor Home For Spring

The leaves are starting to change and, whether you can believe it or not, spring is right around the corner. It seems like just yesterday we were looking at some of the first cold temperatures of last fall. Now it’s nearly spring and warmer temperatures are within reach!

As the weather starts to change, that means that it’s a great time of year to load up your motor home and head out on an adventure. After all, you have the chance to see some truly once-in-a-lifetime views if you go out and visit certain parts of the country during the spring season.

However, before you get ready to hit the road for spring, you’ll want to make sure your motor home is ready for the journey ahead. If it’s been a while since you performed any sort of maintenance, then you might be in for a surprise if your coach can’t handle the conditions. To make sure that this doesn’t happen to you, here are some spring cleaning tips for prepping your motor home for the upcoming season.

Charge Or Replace Battery Systems

The battery in your motor home isn’t quite the same as that in a regular car. Instead, the house and chassis batteries help to power the entire unit. If you stored your motor home all winter, then the batteries may not be ready to be jolted up. Therefore, you should consider having them charged, or even replaced if necessary, before you turn the key in the ignition for the first time of the year.

Check Motor Home Propane

The propane in your coach is going to help with everything from keeping your food warm to helping you bathe in hot water. If your propane isn’t full, it won’t stop you from going anywhere. This is why it’s something that many people overlook before setting off in their motor home. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take being out on the road for very long before you realize how inconvenient not having propane can be. To avoid this troublesome problem, check the propane tank before heading out on the road.

Prepare Fresh Water System

The fresh water system will also need to be changed before the spring season. This is especially true if you didn’t flush the old water before storing your motor home for the winter. New fresh water will help with everything from clean sanitary drinking water, to clean water while washing your hands or taking a shower in your motor home.

Check The Tires Of The Coach

Your tires are not something you should overlook before hitting the road. If your motor home has been sitting for a while, the tires may have lost some of their fullness. This can be a very dangerous problem, but it’s something that can be avoided by simply checking the pressure.

If you have an upcoming trip this spring, be sure to have your motor home prepared. With the tips here, you’ll be able to clean your motor home out and get it ready for the upcoming journeys you’ll be taking part in this spring.
