Getting the RV Ready for the Trip South – Chassis Maintenance

Many RV owners have interrupted their planned vacations because they didn’t take time to properly maintain their chassis. Whether your motor home is a gas or diesel, proper care for the chassis and its elements will ensure that your travels are enjoyable.

Motorhomes require scheduled preventive maintenance, just like your passenger car, SUV, or pickup truck. The difference is that they are much larger and more complex so they require a few extra (and bigger) steps to accomplish this.

The majority of the time, if there is a problem inside the RV, it won’t ruin the trip. It may become an inconvenience for example, a shower not working may mean having to camp where there is a shower. An RV owner can choose when to make those kinds of repairs, perhaps even waiting until they get back home.

A chassis issue on the other hand can end your trip dead in its tracks. Practicing preventive maintenance care for the RV chassis is the best step an owner can make. We recommend that every RV owner take the following preventative steps to help keep their RV’s  performing well:

Basic Engine Maintenance

Engine Oil and Filter

Fuel System Maintenance and Filters

Diesel & Gas Engine Cooling Systems

Engine Air Filters & Air Filter Restriction Gauge

Coolant Surge Tank

Transmissions Fluid & Filters

All Belts & Hoses

Chassis Maintenance

Brakes

Air Compressors, Tanks and Dryers

Air Dryer

Air Ride Suspension

Axles, Driveshaft and Universal Joints

Tire – Tread wear & Rotation, install Crossfire Tire pressure regulators for dual tires

Hydraulic System

Check your hydraulic Leveling system

Hydraulic Fluid Reservoir

Hydraulic filter restriction gauge

Generator

Oil & Oil Filters

Belts & Hoses

Fuel Filters

Coolant & Coolant Surge Tanks

Air Filters

We recommend you always travel with extra fuel filters, belts and hoses and take along a jug of DEF fluid, if your unit is equipped with SCR.

If you haven’t started up your RV in over a year consider putting an antifungal detergent into the diesel tank.
