living full time in my 36' fifth wheel now......thinking about staying
in it for retirement....just had some questions about routine
I received the email above from a new RV’er. . .
thought they posed a great question. . .and wanted to get your thoughts.
Routine maintenance of course includes the daily cleaning you would do even in your house. . .
and then there’s the wash job the outside needs ever so often. . .
washing the bugs off the front is an almost every trip chore!
We wax ours about once a year. . .yuck!
Empty the black tank once a week, and do a back flush. . .
that keeps the yuckies, and the smellies down. . .
Window washing and cleaning is constant, as is dusting. . .
there’s no end to the dusting. . .where does it all come from?
I keep most routine maintenance chores listed on my Google Calendar,
so the reminders pop up as needed. . .
Not really a maintenance issue. . .but keep a Travel Journal. . .
I also do this on my Google Calendar. . .
sure makes it nice when you want to remember where you were and when!
Wish I would have started this at the beginning of our travels. . .
I’m slowly going back and adding in all our trips. . .
I’m sure there are tons more tips. . .what do you think. . .any ideas to add?
Hubby checks the batteries, and adds distilled water on a regular basis. . .
every three months or so. . .same with the hot water heater. . .
you gotta clean it out, or it will fill up with gunk.
Add bug screens to your furnace and hot water heater vents. . .
they are cheap, and will prevent dirt daubers from building a nest (we know this from experience.)
I’m sure there are tons more things that I’m not thinking of at the moment. . .
what would you recommend. . .any ideas?
