Motor home repair and maintenance is very similar to maintaining your car. An RV can be a very expensive and large investment in person’s lifetime so taking that extra time and care to maintain your RV is of the utmost importance. You have to think of your RV as a giant car and your car needs regular car and maintenance to make it last and perform well over time.
What do you need to do to keep your motor home running in tip top condition? Just like your other vehicles you need to take it in for regular oil changes and tune ups. If you are handy you can probably save some money and do this work yourself but I would take to a licensed mechanic or dealership for any important motor home repairs.
Besides the engine and mechanics of your motor home you have to treat your RV like a home. That means regularly inspecting the exterior and roof for leaks, cracks or holes. The last thing you want is to have a leaky roof and end up with a mold or mildew problem. Being proactive in inspecting your RV roof and exterior will go a long way to save you grief and money down the road.
