Fixing and preventing leaks in your RV’s roof is important for preventing damage and expensive repairs.

by Julie T 2/25/2021
If you’ve walked around the inside of an RV that has not been stabilized, you could probably tell how much it can move. The greater the length, the more prone the trailer is to movement. There are several things than can be done to minimize the movement of your trailer, the most effective being the use of RV stabilizer jacks.

Having a Water Softener for Your RV is Important

by Julie T 1/28/2021
Though it may not seem like it, hard water can become an issue for your RV over time. Hard water is created when minerals such as calcium and magnesium end up dissolved in the water. Once the water dries on a surface, these mineral deposits are left behind and can build up on surfaces. Hard water is safe to consume, but can have an effect on your RV’s plumbing and water pressure, among other things. How hard the local water is can change depending on where you are in the country. The areas with the highest concentration of minerals in the water include the Great Lakes region, Florida, and the Southwest.
