Next Time You Need RV Repairs on the Road, Call 24-Hour Mobile Mechanics
Traveling in an RV on a family vacation allows you to see the state and the country in a whole new way. And you are in charge of your own agenda. You won’t have to adhere to departure and arrival times like other means of transportation. When you are ready to tuck in for the night, all you need is a parking spot and an electrical outlet. However, RV’s are no strangers to trouble. 24 Hour Mobile Mechanics has seen just about all the most common RV problems known to man, and then some. Fortunately, in the event that you break down and need RV repairs while on the road, our mobile mechanics will arrive on the scene to diagnose, repair, and send you back on your merry way.
Common RV problems
When things go wrong in an RV they can be difficult to diagnose and repair. Not every mechanic is equipped or understands the mechanics. And many RV drivers are new drivers, so mistakes can happen, and some can cause your RV to show signs of problems or break down completely. The most common RV problems that we come across are listed below.
Engine troubles are common in any vehicle that has an engine. Most engine troubles have warnings. Bad smells, weird sounds, or the RV is running badly, are signs that something is off, and repairs may be necessary. We tend to push our vehicles to go just a little bit further. If there are signs of engine trouble in your RV, have them looked at immediately and avoid a more costly trip to the mechanic. A small problem can quickly build to become a big problem if you don’t take action immediately.
Often times the electrical problems in an RV are caused by human error. An RV is a mobile home, and it has all the appliances that you would expect in a home. But with every new appliance that you run in your RV, you need electricity to support it. Make sure that your RV can handle all the appliances that you’re using on a daily basis, and make sure that you aren’t overloading the circuits and causing electrical failure.
Before you head out in your RV, make sure your tires are ready for the trip. Always check your tires and make sure they aren’t too old and worn to handle the trip. In between trips, be sure to take care of and maintain your tires. They may be an easy problem to diagnose and fix, but replacing RV tires isn’t cheap. Avoid tire blowouts on the road with proper tire maintenance.
Finally, one of the more common troubles we experience with RVs is the old dead battery. Even a new battery requires some maintenance so that it will last for many trips. You may think that you’re saving the battery by having the RV parked in between trips. But in order for the battery to work the next time you take out the RV, you need to charge the engine battery every one to two weeks. You can’t just park your RV and expect it to start smoothly the next time you take a trip. Make sure your battery is well-maintained in between trips.
