Tips for Making Sure the Inside of Your RV is Road Ready

Spring Cleaning

Chances are your RV may have been in storage over the winter, so as warmer weather hits, it’s a great idea to open up some windows and do a deep spring cleaning. Go through every nook and cranny and make sure everything nice and clean.

Check for Uninvited Guests

Sometimes RVs can be susceptible to uninvited guests, especially during the cooler temperatures. Even when you are RVing during the winter, it’s a good idea to give your space a good once (or twice) over to make sure nothing has decided to move in.


RVs are a blank canvas for upgrades and renovations, so if you’ve been thinking of switching things up, now’s the time! Getting your RV ready for the road means making any changes to the interior of your RV before you start moving around again. Things like a fresh coat of paint, new upholstery, and even new kitchen gadgets or storage spaces can make a huge difference.

Maintenance Check

Whether you are driving your RV or towing it, it’s a good idea to have your vehicles checked out before you hit the road. This means tires, fluids, filters, brakes, engines, and all. It doesn’t hurt to take your RV or tow vehicle in for an inspection by a professional, just to make sure it’s ready for any long trips.

Fresh Wash

The outside of your RV deserves a good shine too!

All Systems Running

Especially if your RV has been in storage over the winter, make sure your electrical systems are working properly. Give your RV a test run, pull the slides out, flush your RV tank, and turn on the A/C, it’s important to find out if you need to make any repairs, before you get to your RV site.
