Recreational vehicle repair

Taking a vacation in an RV remains a wonderful American pastime, and you don’t need to be a retiree to enjoy yourself. Today, the average age of RV owners is about 45 years old. Unfortunately, many RVs you see on the road are equally as old.

 

Recreational vehicles go by several different names like:

 

  • Caravans
  • Pop-up campers
  • Truck campers
  • Motor homes
  • Travel trailers
  • Fifth-wheel trailers
  • Camper trailers

 

But you may know them by the iconic brand names “Winnebago” and “Coachmen.” However, other auto manufacturers produce RVs, too. Even Mercedes Benz makes one now. If you use your RV often, you already know how tedious it is to fix it. These vehicles are unique, which means that the typical shop doesn’t have the proper know-how for RV repair.

 

Read on to learn more about why quality RV repair matters.

What can I say.. these guys are the best in the diesel truck repair business that I've found. I own several Ram Diesel Tow Trucks and they have kept us running without fail and for a very fair price. Thanks guys, you'll always be my 'go-to' for my trucks!

I was travelling and had a problem with the generator on my RV. Matt and the service techs at TLC got me in the day after I called and got it repaired in two hours, at a very fair cost. I stumbled into TLC after RV service outfits told me it would be a week to ten weeks before they could even look at my problem. I can't say enough about how well they took care of me.

Common maintenance issues with recreational vehicles

RVs are unique in several respects, but you’ll need to perform regular maintenance on schedule like any truck. Most shops don’t have the chops to repair RVs at all and will send you to the dealership for repairs.

 

The bottom line is that fixing an RV is tricky if you don’t have these vehicles’ experience. They contain extra features and systems that you won’t find in trucks (e.g., solar panels, plumbing, and appliances).

After taking a few road trips, these are the most common issues you'll probably need to address:

This rundown isn’t a complete litany of every issue that you might come across, but these are the most likely RV repair tasks you’ll have to perform before your next road trip.

Common causes of RV maintenance issues

Here is a list of the most common causes of RV maintenance issues:

RVs consists of everything a truck needs to operate well combined with the amenities you’d usually find in the home or at a camping site. That’s why RVs are so popular as vacation vehicles. The problem is that as your RV accumulates thousands of miles, there will be more problems to fix. If you like to take long road trips, you’ll rack up more mileage than you think.

 

Unlike ordinary trucks and automobiles, the root of maintenance issues with RVs often relates to moisture. If this seems counter-intuitive to you, you’re not alone. Moisture from breathing and interior condensation is the most common root cause of RV problems. That’s why an RV well passed its prime might have a dank, musty odor.

 

After years of condensation seeping into the walls, mold can start to grow inside of compartments. To avoid that, it’s always a good idea to ensure proper ventilation remains, and sometimes, it’s best to install a dehumidifier to reduce moisture.

THE BENEFITS OF OUR RV Repair Services

low costs

A quality RV repair service can help you get the most life out of your RV, which is excellent since these vehicles typically cost more than trucks. Some of the best RVs on the market cost $100,000 or more, but more affordable models are available from well-known brands. When you spend that much money on a vacation vehicle, you’ll want to maximize the investment and keep maintenance costs low.

Winter Usage

Next, adequate sanitation is arguably the most under-rated benefit of taking care of your RV. The last thing you want is to be on vacation without clean, running water or heating. Servicing your RV on time is also a good idea if you plan to use it during winter.

 

An important word of advice: Make sure you know how to winterize your RV the right way! Cutting corners only leads to expensive repairs.

Professionals

Moreover, to winterise your RV thoroughly, the vehicle needs to be operating efficiently in the first place. If you’re curious about other benefits, it’s smart to ask a knowledgable mechanic about how you can keep your RV in great shape.

You're due for an RV inspection

Finding a reliable RV repair shop takes a little research because not every shop has the same expertise and track record for good work.

 

Before bringing your RV to the shop, visually inspect the exterior and interior living compartments. Make a note of any minor issues in addition to the obvious ones.

 

A quick tip: It’s always a good idea to give mechanics all of the information they’d need to accurately diagnose the problem.

 

If you know for a fact that the issue stems from bad electrical wiring, remember to mention that to the mechanic. Otherwise, he won’t know where to start or what to eliminate as a potential cause. RVs accumulate mileage much faster than ordinary trucks. That’s the entire purpose of the vehicle, so it’s no wonder they need regular maintenance.
