RV Cleaning Tips

Regular RV cleaning both inside and out is important for the maintenance and longevity of your RV. Here are a few quick RV cleaning tips to use the next time you clean and maintain your RV.

  • Add about 1/3-cup of plain white vinegar to your wash bucket the next time you wash your RV (or car, for that matter). The vinegar helps prevent water spotting and boosts the cleanser as well.
  • Don't use dish soap as an RV cleaner. It is too harsh and can harm paint and finishes. Use a cleaner specifically formulated for RVs.
  • To clean window blinds, put an old tube sock on your hand, and then spray it with an all-purpose cleaner. Just rub the blinds with your hand to clean on both sides!
  • Use a small paint brush to dust ceiling vents, inside window tracks and over doors.
  • Remove water stains from ceilings and carpets with a thin paste of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. Leave on several hours to remove the stain. (Test for color-fastness before you apply the peroxide mixture.)

RV Battery Maintenance

When you think of RV battery maintenance, don't forget there are at least two batteries you'll have to maintain in your RV. One is the "chassis" battery that starts the engine and helps power the engine accessories, and the other is the "coach" battery that powers the interior appliances and accessories in your RV's living quarters. Some RVs have a bank of batteries that power the coach, and whatever your coach has, the batteries all need maintenance at one time or another.

To maintain your batteries for the longest life possible, make sure you clean the cables and terminals on each battery at least once each season. Remove the cables from the battery and scrub with a wire brush and a mild solution of baking soda and water. Scrub the terminals as well. Then, double check the cables and make sure they are not bent, cut, or corroded, and that they are firmly attached to the cable ends. Reattach the cables to the terminals, making sure you connect positive to positive and negative to negative. Your batteries will last longer and perform better if you perform this simple RV battery maintenance at least once a season.
