Whether you're brand new to the RV life, upgrading from a tent or smaller trailer, buying new or used - there are some basic essentials you need to know about your RV and how it works before hitting the road.
If you didn't get the benefit of a thorough salesperson walkthrough when you picked up your rig, or bought used and the previous owner didn't have a knack for including details - you've come to the right episode. Today we're talking about 10 essential components of almost every RV and what you need to know to hit the road safely and prepared for the unexpected. Here's what we're going to cover:

  1. Filling Freshwater - From dealing with the water pump, to how much a tank full of water weighs and the differences between water filling in Canada and the USA - we've got you covered
  2. Taps - Use our previous flood experience to guide you on what NOT to do
  3. Sanitizing your Freshwater tank - This one is essential for the health and safety of your family - don't skip it.
  4. Black and Grey tank systems - We provide a super quick overview, but if you want the dirty details - listen to Episode 2 - The Scoop on Poop
  5. Tires - How long they last, how they differ from automobile tires, and the deal with "twisting tires"
  6. Awnings - Electric, non-electric and how to avoid a costly repair bill
  7. Appliances - The different types of appliances and how they work
  8. Rubber roof and slide maintenance
  9. Stabilizing Jacks - We cover this in detail on Episode 5 but we give a quick reminder that will save you a bucket of money.
  10. Fuse Panels - Where to find them, and what to do if your power components stop working
