Check and clean the burners and combustion chamber annually. Make sure there is the minimum amount of required space for the return air path. Watch for soot build up and call for service if evident. This is sign of a cracked heat exchanger. Check gas lines every 6 months. Black Tanks
Black Tanks use a chemical every time you dump the tank to help break down toilet paper and solid waste. This will help the tank from plugging up. Also flush the tank at least 3-4 times a year to also help keep it clean and not smelling bad. Don’ t empty the black water tanks until it is at least half full. The water helps to break down solid waste. Water Regulators
This a very important item to always use. Due to every RV park having different water pressure this could cause damage to your RV plumbing system. For example, some RV parks have as much as 90 pounds of pressure and your plumbing in your RV may only be rated for 30 pounds of pressure.
Wash the A/C condenser at least twice a year. The filters should be washed every 30 to 45 days.
Do you need 30 amps or 50 amps to run your RV? Not enough people realize the implications of not having enough amperage rating on their RV. Most Rv’s are only 30 amp rated. The problem with this becomes apparent when you try to run too many devices at the same time. An air conditioner may pull an average of 12.5 amps. An electric water heater may pull another 12.5 amps. A microwave can also pull about 12.5 amps. Already the total number of amperage being used is 37.5. This will pop a 30 amp circuit breaker. Most devices have an amp rating on a sticker on them. Take notice of the amp ratings, they can save you from a lot of problems. You might have to only use certain devices in order instead of at the same time. If a device does not show an amp rating but does show a wattage then take the wattage and divide by the voltage. For example, a 1200 watt device running on 120 volts is 10 amps. Also be aware that an RV park may only provide 30 amp service. If you have a 50 amp rated RV then you could end up pulling more than they can provide. To avoid issues there is a difference in plugs between a 30 amp and 50 amp service.. To allow a 50 amp rated RV to attach to a 30 amp rated service you’ll need to purchase a “Pigtail” adapter. They run about $25 - $35.
Be sure to check your batteries every 3 to 6 months. If they are low on water add only distilled water up to their proper levels.

When winterizing your RV make sure to drain the hot water tank, and pour anti-freeze in all the drains. Also, if you have an electric water heater turn the circuit breaker off so the heating element will not burn up. Also pour anti-freeze into your black tank to keep the valve from freezing up or breaking.

There should be at least 2-3 feet around any electric heaters. For increased safety, only use an electric heater that shuts off automatically if tipped over. Never leave an electric heater on when you are not home. Radiator heaters use oil instead of a heating element. These are also available and provide an increase in safety. The safest option is to use the furnace provided with the R/V if available.
Check your LP Gas system at least once a year for leaks and correct pressure. These systems are designed to work at 11” water column. A manometer is used to check the pressure. It is recommended to have a service technician check the pressure for you. Also, keep a watch on the manufacture date of the LP cylinders. Out of date cylinders may not be able to be filled if you are out traveling.
