Mark is a retired US Army Maintenance Chief Warrant Officer Three. He knows what is required to keep large fleets of combat vehicles prepared for the rigors of war. The same thing required to get many years of reliable service and use from your RV. Preventive Maintenance is maintenance you perform on your RV before a problem exists. These checks are designed to prevent or identify potential problems that could lead to mechanical breakdown, malfunction or failure of a component or system on your RV. Preventive Maintenance consists of cleaning, inspecting, lubricating, adjusting and servicing your RV. These checks can help towards enjoying trouble free operation of your RV. They do not supersede any scheduled maintenance recommended by the chassis and RV manufacturer and it is imperative that those schedules and recommended intervals for the checks in this e-book are followed. Some of the scheduled maintenance for your RV must be performed by an RV dealer, chassis manufacturer or authorized service center.
