Purchasing an RV is a major investment, similar to your automobile or home. To protect your investment and get many years of reliable service and use from your RV there are certain measures you need to take. There are three types of maintenance for your RV. Preventive maintenance, which is the purpose of this e-book course, scheduled maintenance and emergency maintenance.
Preventive Maintenance is maintenance you perform on your RV before a problem exists. These checks are designed to prevent or identify potential problems that could lead to mechanical breakdown, malfunction or failure of a component or system on your RV. Preventive Maintenance consists of cleaning, inspecting, lubricating, adjusting and servicing your RV.
The purpose of this course is to give you some easy to follow preventive maintenance checks that you can perform on your RV. These checks can help towards enjoying trouble free operation of your RV. They do not supersede any scheduled maintenance recommended by the chassis and RV manufacturer and it is imperative that those schedules and recommended intervals for are followed. Some of the scheduled maintenance for your RV must be performed by an RV dealer, chassis manufacturer or authorized service center. In many situations emergency maintenance is required because preventive maintenance and scheduled maintenance were not performed.
