During recent months, we’ve all taken time off the road and taken a break from our motorhomes. But, as the days are getting warmer and longer, and with our outdoor restrictions easing, many motorhome owners are ready to get back on the road.
If your motorhome hasn’t been used for a long time, it’s vital to carry out maintenance and safety checks before planning a trip. Here are some handy hints and tips to get you road ready for the summer.
As a motorhome owner, it’s common not to use your motorhome during the winter. So when it comes to summer, a spring clean is definitely needed. By thoroughly cleaning the interior and exterior, you will remove residual dirt and grime that has built up over time.
If left unclean, this dirt can cause damage and deterioration to your motorhome, so it’s very important to remove this before getting on the road.
Check Your Tyres
Checking the tyres of your motorhome is imperative before planning any journey. Due to minimum use, your tyre pressures will have decreased during the winter season, and they will need to be topped up.
Tyre blowouts are a very common cause of accidents on the roads. To reduce this risk, regularly check for signs of cracking, bulging and low tread depth; all factors that could lead to tyre issues.
