Do you know when you need to visit our RV service center? Regular RV maintenance is essential for a safe and dependable vehicle, but there will come some unexpected moments when your RV will need repairs. If you’re unsure of what to look for, we have created a list of warning signs for when your RV needs service.

Unusual Sounds

Unusual sounds while you drive or when braking is a sign that something is wrong with your RV. It’s challenging to describe vehicle sounds but consider “unusual” as anything that appears out of nowhere or atypical to the usual engine rhythm.

Strange Smells

Strange odors are early indicators that your RV needs service or repairs. There are not any particular types of smells to look out for. Any odd smell coming from your RV indicates that something is wrong.

Interior Electrical Problems

Minor electric problems don’t usually cause much concern, but in an RV, it is unsafe and indicates a bigger problem. Some examples are dim lights, power windows or seats not behaving normally, or the radio acting up.

Exterior Damage

Exterior damage may seem obvious, but minor exterior damage might hide a bigger problem. Getting any external damage inspected, big and small, will help to prevent more extensive and more expensive repairs in the future.

Mechanical Issues

A common issue with RVs is having trouble starting, which indicates it’s time to have a mechanic look at it.  Mechanical problems can be caused by worn-out parts or improper installation.
