Imagine yourself driving from New York to Los Angeles one last time before the summer season ends. You are cruising smoothly on the I-40 when suddenly, black smoke billows up from your RV's front and your car comes to a complete halt. The next gas station is 50 miles away and upon checking, your alternator has been blown up. You look back and realize that you haven't been maintaining your engine for the last six months. Pretty horrific, right? If you don't want this to happen — most especially when you're out on the road for a long drive — here are some tips on how to take care of your RV from the inside out.

Jim Jeallet's motorhomeAs always, maintain your vehicle at the most optimal running condition. Since the RV is your second home especially when you're always hitting the road for new adventures, you have to take care of your engine as if it is the basic foundation of your house. For starters, you can start by checking the wirings, brakes, lights, oil, water, battery, air, gas, tires—in short, your entire RV. Also, don't forget to keep an eye out on the dashboard indicators such as coolant or oil warning indicators. Aside from regular checkups and replacement of worn out parts, keeping spare parts in your RV such as an extra battery, spare spark plugs or even wheels allows you to fix the problems yourself even if you're in the middle of nowhere.

Insure your RV. If you really care about your vehicle and treat it as an extension of your home, it is in your best interest to insure it in order to protect it from unforeseen incidents like theft and force majeure. Since the road is a treacherous place not just for people but for cars as well, you can never tell when mishaps will occur and how grave the damages will be. You can see all the necessary information, such as policy scope and limitations and terms of payment, if you click here. After all, insuring your RV against harm just shows how well you treat your second home.
