Check Your Plumbing and Ventilation Every time you leave for one of your RV adventures, check or hire someone to check your toilet valves, lines, and your RV toilet stop to ensure it is all working correctly. Make sure your bathroom is vented properly because poor ventilation in small spaces with ample water is a perfect place for mold to grow. Don’t forget to have someone look at the plumbing under your sinks and your waste disposal system. The last thing you need is a leaky toilet or sink supply line soaking your carpet while you’re blissfully charging down the road to that next destination.
Keep Tabs on Your RV Roof and Ceiling make sure your roof is water tight by inspecting the caulking, moulding and seams. Examine your roof carefully at least twice a year for exposed fasteners, cracked seams, UV deterioration, mold and mildew, water spots on the ceiling. One clear indicator for RV roof deterioration is a chalky white substance left in your driveway when you wash your RV. If you are a “do-it-yourself-er” (DIY-er), you could start by spraying water and trying to determine the source of the roof leaks, replacing leaky roof vents, removing old caulking and replacing it with new, and repairing damaged seams. If your roof is in need of repair and you are not a DIY-er you may want to try a liquid roof system with no caulk, seams, or leaks. So the best way to do RV Roof Repair is with liquid roof. Prevent Mold from forming during Storage Store your travel vehicle under a cover that will protect it from the elements while allowing it to breathe, while venting inside water vapor to prevent mold, mildew from forming.
