Wintertime means taking extra care of your prized RV—we recently wrote a blog post highlighting the importance of RV winterization. Some of the items we outlined are pretty easy to complete. Now, RVs come in all different shapes and sizes—they can range from towable folding camping (or pop ups) to 45-foot motorhomes. As a result, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution for RV maintenance or winterization. Don’t worry though—Beckley’s has you covered. We have fantastic winter RV inspection service specials going on right now!
Our Winter RV Inspection
In addition to winterizing your RV, our RV inspection service offers the following:
Sealant inspection: Inspecting and resealing your RV in a timely manner can prevent leaks and could save you thousands of dollars in potential damages. Any seam on the roof has the potential for a water leak. All summer long, your RV was probably moving up and down roads across the country—seams and sealants happen to move with your RV. This causes sealants to separate, creating a pathway for water to get through the seams and sealant. We’ll conduct a thorough sealant inspection for you.
LP gas line safety inspection: Most RVs use liquid propane for heat, refrigeration, hot water, and cooking. Veteran RVers usually develop a routine for checking the safety of their propane systems. If you’re new to the RV lifestyle, you can really benefit by taking advantage of our RV inspection of LP gas lines. When propane leaks from one of the lines inside an RV, it can accumulate until a source of ignition (match, cigarette, spark, pilot light, etc.) causes it to explode.
House battery & converter inspection: RVs use lead acid batteries, which means they have several cells connected in a series. The lifespan of RV batteries depends on how they’ve been used, maintained, recharged, and stored. Part of our RV inspection service involves taking a look at your RV’s batteries.
A power converter is a vital part of any RV—that is, if you plan to use any appliances in your RV. The converter takes the 12-volt direct current (DC) power supplied by the system and RV battery and converts it to usable alternative current (AC) power that most appliances need to operate. With our RV inspection, we’ll complete a full converter inspection for you.
LP tank refill: Federal regulations for dispensing and refilling propane tanks are set by the National Fire Protection Agency, the Department of Transportation (DOT), and the Occupational Safety of Health Administration (OSHA). While refilling, the propane tank may not be left unattended. Give us a visit—we’ll refill your LP tank as part of our RV inspection while you relax or browse our MD RV parts store.
