Four Things That Are More Irritating Than Engine Problems In Your RV

An RV can be a dream come true. It can also be a dead weight around your neck when it breaks down. While engine troubles (especially while on the road and on vacation!) are not fun, there are at least four more things that are more troublesome and irritating. A motorhome service provider can spot these problems before they really cause issues, and they can fix all of the following, too.

The Hitch That Does Not Hitch

Whether your RV relies on a truck to pull it along, or you have a hitch off the back for towing your car or other recreational vehicles, you want, nay, you need the trailer hitch to work. A trailer hitch that does not hitch either means that the RV is not going anywhere (and by extension, neither are you), or your extra vehicles are not coming along for the ride. A pre-trip inspection will uncover this problem beforehand and give you enough time to have it repaired or replaced.

Leaks in Your Water Tanks or Hoses

A leak in the clean water tank and hoses means you have next to no water to wash dishes or wash up. There is also no water to flush the toilet. If that is not bad enough, leaks in your "black water" tank and hoses means you are trailing sewage and dirty water everywhere that the RV goes. Ew. Worse still, if a police officer spots it and pulls you over for a closer look, you could be ticketed for "dumping waste." Seal tech testing can find leaks you may not even know you had.

Flat Tires

Flat tires on an RV are a beast to change. The RV is so heavy that you really do need a hydraulic lift to lift the RV enough to change the tire. To complicate things even more, RVs are so boxy that if you tilt them too far to one side while trying to change a tire, you might cause it to flip onto its side. If you leave the tire change to the pros, then you have to find a towing service that can haul an RV, and that is no easy task.

Air Conditioning and Refrigeration

You need the air conditioning to survive all of the hot, muggy places to which you travel. You need the refrigeration to keep your food cold and fresh. Luckily, both of these things depend upon refrigerant, so the repairs are very similar.
