10 Things to not Forget when Prepping your RV for Spring

March 29, 2021

The majority of people take their RVs out of storage in the spring, de-winterize and prepare it for the camping season. In addition to the usual items that need to be done before you take your first trip, there are also other things to not forget.

Check out this list of 10 things.

Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Check if the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are still working. Why not just replace them anyway and be good to go for the season?

Freshwater Tanks

Fill up your freshwater tank completely until the water comes out the fill spout, then let it sit for a few hours. It is good to check for leaks at the same time.

Fire Extinguisher

Check if your fire extinguisher is still pressured, free of physical damage, corrosion or leakage. It is important to ensure it is ready for use during an emergency.


Check the batteries to make sure the water level is where it should be and the connections are solid and free of corrosion. It is important to check if the batteries will still hold a charge after sitting in the cold for a few months. Make sure that your charge line from the vehicle alternator to your house batteries is working.


It is a must to check your RV tire pressure before any RV trip, and especially after the winter if your RV was in storage.

Propane Tanks

Always fill your propane tanks and make sure you are able to fill them up wherever you are going.
