4 RV Dewinterization Tips to Get You Ready for Spring

Spring is right around the corner – as you start making plans for camping trips in your new or used RV, you’ll also want to plan to dewinterize your RV to get it ready for the road. It’s not complicated, and our quick RV dewinterization tips below can help make quick work of it.

RV Dewinterization Tips

Charge the Battery

First, you’ll want to get a charge on your RV’s battery. Absolutely make sure the battery charger is off before hooking it up to your RV’s battery. Next, adjust the voltage to the correct setting before turning it on and letting the battery start charging.

Flush The System

Next, the system needs a fresh water flush. First connect your RV’s water hookup to a garden hose. Next, open all the faucets in your RV and turn on the hose, letting the faucets run for about 10 minutes or until the water runs clear. And make sure to flush your RV’s toilets to clear any antifreeze while the system is flushing.

Tank Remounting

You’ll want to pull out your RV propane tank and remount them on the tank mounts, and reattach the propane hoses according to your RV’s user manual. Use this time to check your propane lines for any leaks. If you do see any concerns or anything that might need some repair, contact us right away. We can schedule some RV service and have one of our technicians can get you in quickly! Other things we can assist with include the following:

  • Tire pressure

Tidy Up

Your RV dewinterization is almost complete! Other tasks that should be completed or double checked include the following:

Do a freshen up in your RV’s interior by freshening up all bedding and linens, restocking essentials like toilet paper and batteries, and opening the windows to let some fresh air help “wake up” your RV’s interior (nothing smells worse than “storage”).
