Did you know?

Most RV owners neglect simple maintenance care on their RV that could save them hundreds of dollars in unnecessary repairs. Yet the dreadful idea of doing such tasks, especially in hard to reach places, makes a procrastinator even out of the most proficient RV owners.
RV battery banks, for example, in most RV are flooded batteries. This means they are lead-acid batteries that contain water. This water boils out as the batteries are being charged. If the proper water level is not maintained, batteries could fail prematurely.
A great remedy for this type of maintenance is a Pro-Fill Battery Watering System, especially for those difficult, if not impossible, batteries to access.

Is your trailer costing you unnecessary money?

Trailer wheels can become out of alignment over time. This can cause premature tire wear and even a blowout.

  • Has been over a year since you have had your trailer tires aligned?
  • Do your tires show uneven wear? This can cost hundreds of dollars in avoidable expenses.
  • Do your wheels have different size gaps from front to rear on both sides?

Then it may be time to have your trailer tires aligned.

There are many cars to choose from to fit the lifestyle you have, from the small Smart car to a four-door Jeep Wrangler, you can cruise till your eyes have been filled with all the scenery you can take in.
Yet for every great action, there is an equal reaction. Seasoned RV'ers know that towing has one drawback, one cardinal rule that must never be broken, under any circumstance, not even with a person behind the wheel of the tow car steering. This one rule is:

Never Back Up!
