Possible Risks Your Motorhome May Experience

While motorhomes and RVs can be a lot of fun, they can require a bit of upkeep and have certain issues. Problems can lead to extra costs, travel delays, and other situations. Here are a few of the most common owners cope with.

Water Leaks

Should the outdoor elements find their way into the unit via cracks, age, or other damage, they can result in significant issues. Make any repairs as soon as you notice leaks to avoid situations with the interiors, electrical systems, appliances, and destroyed furniture.

Tire Blowouts

Owners tend to go off-road in their RVs, making for a bumpy ride that can wear out tires. Additional pressure and weight may also cause damage. Blowouts on the road can result in accidents or injuries, especially at higher speeds. Check the tires frequently and keep up with maintenance.

Toilet Malfunctions

Toilet problems can be stinky and highly inconvenient for occupants, so staying prepared to handle minor issues on the road is essential. Over time, gaskets, seals, and valves wear down, but routine maintenance can help stave off toilet issues, including water backups.

Losing Battery Life

Just like most power-operated systems, such as home power, car batteries, and other electrical devices, the batteries in your RV can suddenly fail. This may be due to age, leaving on connected systems, or age. Check the battery regularly, and have a spare on hand for long road trips as a backup.

Be Prepared For Motorhome Issues

When well maintained, certain costly RV issues may be covered by your traditional policy or under a supplemental or add-on to your coverage. Be sure to ask an agent today to review your policy before hitting the road. If you need insurance or have questions, contact VIP Insured in Bellevue, WA.
