If you read my last blog post, you learned I recently bid on a motorhome that hadn't been used in quite awhile. When I made it to the place where the inspection took place, I was a little disappointed in the condition of the roof. They had not done the routine maintenance leaving it susceptible to leaks and rot. Fortunately for them, the rest of the unit was better than I expected so we were still able to do the deal at the offer I had given.
Normally when you purchase a unit from a dealer somebody will usually share with you what you should do to keep your unit well maintained. Many people are so excited about their future adventures they don't listen as intently as they should and some if not all of this maintenance can go by the wayside costing them in some cases thousands of dollars when they try to resell their unit.
Here's a short list of maintenance items you should be considering to keep your motorhome well maintained:
- Reseal the roof
- Keep tires off the ground and covered
- Reseal windows
- Keep under cover whenever possible
- Don't smoke in them
- Don't keep pets in them
- Keep generator serviced
- Keep engine serviced
- Replace air conditioner filters
- Keep proper air pressure in tires
Just by doing these 10 items can save you up to 1,000's of dollars when you resell your motorhome. That may not be much for some people but in the market such as this, many people don't need any help with the depreciation of their unit.
