RV Service - FAQ's
Do I need a reservaton to get service work performed?
The answer is yes. Year round our service department is very busy and we need to schedule who is coming in. We work hard to allocate the proper amount of time to each customer and we try not to overbook. We also will schedule an "active delivery" when you pick your RV up from us. Again, we allocate time with you to show you that the repairs were completed to your satisfaction before you leave.
Why is my battery dead after sitting for 5 or more days?
RV's are equipped with LPG detectors, CO detectors and stereos that are wired into the 12 volt system. Although the amp draw is small, after several days it will deplete the battery. Make sure the TV booster is in the off postion as this will draw amps from the battery. We recommend battery disconnects to prevent this from happening.
How often should I inspect and clean my roof?
We suggest visually inspecting your roof at least 4 times per year; checking for voids and cracks in the sealant around your vent caps, sky lights and transition moldings. We also recommend performing a roof wash and condition at least 2 times per year to keep the rubber membrane from deteriorating and getting chalky from drying out.
When should I repack my wheel bearings?
We recommend you should have the trailer wheel bearings repacked every 12,000 miles to 4,000 miles. While we are repacking your bearings, we will also check your brakes for proper wear.
Do you provide storage for RV's?
Yes, we have approximately 150 spaces available to accommodate travel trailers, fifth wheels and motorhomes. We over valet service so all you have to do is call or email 24-48 hours prior to pick up and we will have your unit on our fence ready when you arrive.
