After a great camping season enjoying the outdoors with family and friends, the time is quickly approaching where you’ll start to think about winterizing your recreational vehicle over the winter months. It’s important to ensure you follow the right steps in winterizing your RV to ensure your vehicle can withstand freezing temperatures and be in good shape for the next camping season. Our team at Desert Autoplex RV in Mesa, Arizona is here to help you and your family follow the right precautions and steps to winterize your recreational vehicle.

Winterize Your RV with these tips from Desert Autoplex RV in Mesa, Arizona!

The biggest issue that arises when winterizing your motorhome or recreational vehicle is properly protecting the RV water system from the freezing temperatures and damages that can cause. In fact, frozen or damaged water lines are among the most common problems with winterizing your RV. And although your RV water system is the most susceptible to the damages from winter weather, it’s also very easy to protect from this threat. The first major step in winterizing your RV is to follow your owner’s manual for specific guidelines.

Here are a couple of items to pickup at your local RV parts stores, if you’re planning on winterizing your RV yourself:

  • Non-toxic RV/Marine antifreeze (2-3 gallons, depending on your specific RV)
  • Water heater bypass kit
  • Wand to clean out the black-water holding tank
  • Water pump converter kit

For most RV’s, you can winterize your RV by yourself, following this steps and helpful tips. First, you’ll drain the fresh-water holding tank, drain and flush the gray and black water holding tanks, drain the water heater, open the pressure relief valve and remove the drain plug. You’ll clean the black tank out with a wand if your RV doesn’t have a built-in cleanout system. You’ll want to make sure the water heater isn’t hot or under pressure when you drain it.

From there, you’ll open all hot and cold faucets including the toilet valve, outside shower, and low point water drain lines and use the water pump to force the water out of the system. You’ll bypass the water heater if a bypass kit is installed and install a water pump converter kit to process antifreeze throughout your system.

We realize this is easier said than done, so please don’t hesitate to contact our team at Desert Autoplex RV in Mesa, Arizona for any questions about winterizing your RV. We look forward to helping you properly store your recreational vehicle, so you can fully enjoy it next camping season!

new, preowned, bad RV smells, Desert Autoplex RV, Mesa, Arizona

Follow These Tips From Desert Autoplex RV to Remove Bad RV Smells!

For sewer smells that are coming from the bathroom, there are specific chemicals you can use to eliminate RV toilet odor including tank deodorizer’s and waste digesters. Other simple measures include making sure the vent out the roof of the RV is indeed opened and allowing adequate ventilation for the water tank. And of course, always make sure you drain your waste tank after your RV outing. When it comes to your RV kitchen and bathroom drains, bad odors can develop especially when your RV is in storage and some water remains in the tank. To avoid an odor to develop, and even worse, bacteria to grow, mix a cup of baking soda with a gallon of water and poor it down your sink and drains.

Moreover, bad RV odor from dead rodents can be among the worst. To avoid rodent problems in your RV, make sure you do what you can ahead of time to make your RV as unwelcoming to rodents as possible. Simple measures include setting mousetraps – especially the kind that can catch and contain rodents and other invaders – setting out rodent poisons and ultrasonic rodent repellants. If you’re experiencing bad odor and taste from your RV water system, make sure you sanitize your water tanks at least every time you get it out of storage.

Finally, when you store your RV, install vent covers over existing roof vents to enable you to leave the roof vents open and allowing the air to constantly ventilate. To take it a step further, you can invest in solar powered vents to more efficiently draw out the air.

Helpful RV Buying Tips from Desert Autoplex in Mesa, Arizona!

We first recommend that you rent before you buy. Plan a weekend getaway or a week-long trip and hit the road with you and your family in a RV to see if it’s something you could see yourselves using. That is the number one rule of owning an RV, after all – that you actually use it! Secondly, make sure you do your homework to determine which type of RV would be best for you and your family. Of course RV’s range in size, price and types including motorized RV’s more suitable for cross-country trips or towable RV’s for weekend camping trips.

Once you’ve decided you’d actually use your RV and you know which type of RV would be most suitable for you and your family, now’s when you decide if buying a new or used recreational vehicle is best. Of course how you decide to use your RV could help you make this decision. If you only plan to get out a couple times a year for a weekend getaway or camping trip, perhaps a used RV is right for you. But if you plan to spend a couple months on the road, then we’d direct you to a new RV and all the amenities it brings as a home away from home!

Once you’ve done your homework and have a great idea of how you’d use your RV, head to Desert Autoplex RV for a test-drive. Our team is here to help throughout this entire process and looks forward to serving you and your family in this exciting time!

Keep Your RV Cool Throughout the Summer Months!

As temperatures rise throughout July and August, follow these helpful tips to keep your RV cool from Desert Autoplex RV in Mesa, Arizona!

For RV and motorhome owners, summer is prime season to be out and about camping and enjoying the great outdoors! But if you’ve owned a camper long enough then you know there’s not much that’s as disagreeable as a walking in to a RV that’s been sitting in direct sunlight all day. When you need to beat the heat and retreat to your camper to cool down, it’s important that you’ve done everything you can to ensure it’s cool.

new, preowned, RV Maintenance, Keep Your RV Cool, Desert Autoplex, Mesa, Arizona

Keep Your RV Cool this Summer with These Tips from Desert Autoplex RV in Mesa, Arizona!

Follow these helpful tips from Desert Autoplex RV in Mesa to keep your RV cool throughout the summer!

  1. Certainly park in the shade whenever possible. Ask for a shady site when you first arrive to your campsite. Even more, park your RV in the shade on the side where the refrigerator vent is located so your frig and A/C will work more efficiently.
  2. Improve your air conditioner’s efficiency by cleaning your A/C filters and always keep a new set of filters nearby in case you need to replace them.
  3. Be sure to use your main patio awning and any window awnings as well as your window blinds, curtains and your day/night shades to help keep the sun out.
  4. Be sure to run your appliances and electronic equipment through the proper voltage. Since campground voltage can fluctuate depending on how many camper’s are using it, always monitor the voltage coming into your RV and ensure it stays between 105-130 volts.
  5. Have a thermostatically controlled refrigerator vent fan installed on the back of your refrigerator or at the top of the refrigerator roof vent. These work beautifully to remove built-up heat and, therefore, improves your refrigerator’s performance by up to 40 percent.
  6. An inexpensive, but highly efficient method, is to install proper ventilation such as MaxxAir vent covers over the roof vents. These vents let fresh air continue to circulate throughout your motorhome regardless of the weather, while also letting smoke, heat and stale air escape.
  7. Cook outside rather than inside whenever possible to keep your motorhome as cool as possible.
  8. Just like you would at home, keep your doors/windows closed …don’t air condition the whole neighborhood!

Following these tips to keep your RV cool in the summer will be extremely beneficial to you and your loved ones as you enjoy the great outdoors this season. Head to Desert Autoplex RV in Mesa, Arizona to meet our team and ask any questions you might have! You can also make a service appointment to ensure your RV is in top condition before setting out on your next great adventure. We look forward to seeing you soon!
