Getting a new RV can be exciting, as it means you’re one step closer to heading out on your big adventure. Before you hit the open road, though, it’s important your new rig is ready. Here are a few tips for prepping your new RV that will make your first trip with it a success.
Get to know your RV. Whether you’re a first-time buyer or an RV veteran, it’s important to remember that not all rigs are the same. Take a day to set up your RV in the driveway and test out its various systems. Open the awning, cool the refrigerator, and use the air conditioning to make sure you know how everything works – and that everything is in working order.
Stock up on everything you need. Stocking an RV might not seem like a big deal, but you don’t want to wait until the last minute, especially with a new travel trailer. Adjust to your new RV’s layout and storage space, and use these amenities to fit your needs. If you’re not sure where to start, use one of these sample stocking checklists to get started.
Make necessary repairs. When you’re getting to know your RV, it’s important you fix any systems or stock that need repair. If your rig is brand-new, it’s likely that these repairs will be covered by your warranty – just make sure you make a repair appointment well before you head out on your next trip.
