Begin by removing any covers or skirting you installed and do a walk-around of your entire RV. Carefully check the exterior for any new cracks, holes, or stains.
Before you reinstall the battery, make sure it has a good water level (top it off if not) and a full charge. This is also a good time to get a new battery if your current one is reaching the end of its lifespan.
Carefully inspect each tire’s pressure and tread depth. You may need to reinflate or replace tires if they have become damaged during the winter.
Drain the antifreeze in your pipes and thoroughly sanitize the water lines with a blend of bleach and water.
This was probably drained before you stored the RV, but give it a thorough rinse and scrub. In addition, it’s a good idea to add an enzyme cleaner to the tank.
Check your smoke alarms, carbon monoxide sensors, and LP gas leak detectors. All of these are essential and can save your life, so it’s important to make sure they’re in good working order.
Emergency supplies can save your life, so make sure you have all the supplies you need to take care of yourself for a few days.
Take some time to inspect all the strips around your windows, doors, and vents. Replace anything that looks damaged and make sure you can form a good seal.
Fill up your fresh water tank, get some new propane, and fill up on gas. Run your faucets and test out appliances to ensure there are no leaks or problems with the system.
Finally, give everything a nice thorough cleaning. You can dewinterize an RV fairly easily, but it'll still feel pretty musty until you freshen it up.
Make sure you keep track of all your RV maintenance and repairs with an online tool such as RV LIFE Maintenance. Not only can you keep all of your documents in one place, but you’ll also receive timely reminders when maintenance is due to help you avoid costly repairs and accidents.
