1. Be sure and inspect your exterior thoroughly. You will want to check the roof and body for any cracks or seperations making sure that there are no stains on the ceiling as this is a sign of a roof leak. After you complete these checks, examine beneath the RV to make sure there are no fuel or fluid leaks. Now you are ready to wash your RV. Use a specially formulated soap for the outside and make sure that you wash your RV in the shade. We can provide this service for you!

2. If your RV has been in storage, then it may need to be aired out. Clean the carpet, floors and other RV surfaces as needed.
3. Perform a fluid and connections check. Make sure there are no insect and rodent nests or chewed wires and hoses as well as check the LP gas levels and test all kitchen appliances to make sure that they’re functioning properly.
4. Make sure that you drain and flush your fresh water tank. After you flush your fresh water tank, add 1/4th cup of bleach for each 15 gallons of capacity your RV has. Then fill the tank but leave room for the mixture to move around. Next drive the RV around to mix the bleach in. Run hot water to get the bleach in the water heater then drain the tank. Repeat these step with 1/4th cup of baking soda per 15 gallons then test the water pump and water system.
5. Be sure and check your RV’s batteries for electrolyte levels. Remove all connections and treat batteries with an anticorrosive product before re-assembling the connections.
6. Change your RV’s oil and filter and perform all recommended services according to your RV’s manual.
