Hello and Happy Easter,

For lots of RV owners the month of April marks the start of a new camping season. If you fall into that category you want to make sure your RV is ready for the new season.  This involves de-winterizing the RV, sanitizing the plumbing system and performing other spring maintenance checks. The degree or amount of work required will depend on how the RV was stored at the end of last year's camping season. But, even if it was prepped and stored properly tires still lose air pressure and batteries lose the charge while in storage. 

In this month's newsletter we will highlight some of these topics to help make the task of getting the RV ready for another camping season easier.

Enjoy the newsletter, and if you have family or friends who like RVs and the RV lifestyle share with them. Happy Camping in 2018.
