Mobile Motor Home Repair
Free Motor Home Towing To Our Shop, When We Provide The Motor Home Repair
Mobile homes just like regular vehicles require maintenance and upkeep. But unlike regular cars, the maintenance and repairs needed for mobile homes are not limited to the tires, engine, and wheel alignment. You also need to check the interiors of the mobile home for broken appliances, doors, and windows.
When repairing your mobile home, you need to know a few things. Here are some of the best mobile home repair tips from expert mobile motor home repair shops:
1. Check the level of your motor home prior to your trip – When you purchase a mobile home it is properly leveled and working in perfect order. Over time, you will find that your mobile home will start to creak and squeak whenever you walk around or some of your doors and windows don’t close properly or won’t close at all. This means that your mobile home is not properly leveled anymore. If you prefer to do it yourself, there are kits that you can buy from the repair shop to help walk you through the levelling process. You can also hire a professional to do this for you to save you the hassle.
2. Check for holes and bumps – mobile home bodies are made with durable materials but they are not indestructible. Over time, the screens on the mobile home doors and windows could be riddled with holes. If your family regularly goes camping, you’ll know how forest animals would always find a way into your home just to get your food. Inspect your mobile home after every camping trip to see if there are places where tiny animals can crawl into. Have someone repair these holes for you.
3. Check on electronic appliances installed in your mobile home – just like your house your mobile home also has things like hot and cold shower, air conditioning, power plugs where you can plug in appliances and an electric or gas powered cooking device. Before every trip, make sure that all these appliances are in proper working order. Check for grounded power sources, ensure that the outlets are able to handle the power requirements of your appliances, and see to it that the cables that power your vehicle have not been chewed on by forest animals thinking they’re food. Tiny forest animals like raccoons, squirrels, and mice can easily get into the electrical wirings of your mobile home so be sure to check those before you go on that long trip.
4. Check indoor furnishing for cracks and breaks – check on the tiles on the bathroom, the counter, and the table tops for breaks and cracks. Check kitchen tops for chipped areas or broken wood. Repairing a small crack is easier and cheaper to repair than a huge crack. You might even need to replace the entire thing if simple repair techniques won’t do it.
5. Check the engine – in order to get to your destination safe, you should always bring your mobile home in the auto shop for maintenance check-up. Check your mobile home’s manual as to when you should bring it in for oil change, tire rotation and the like.
