Tips to Prepare Your RV for a Summer Trip

The summer season will officially end on Friday, September 22, 2017. But, do not break out the fall jackets yet. There is still time to take the RV out for one more summer road trip! Eva-Dry knows that getting ready to embark on an RV journey can be a daunting task. Below are some tips to help prepare your RV and to help you make the most out of the last few days of summer!

  • Safety and Maintenance Checklist: The single most important thing you need to do before you leave is to perform a complete safety and maintenance check of your RV. Preventative maintenance is crucial to ensure a safe and enjoyable trip. In addition to doing a safety check before you go, it is important to stop often and check for anything that could have caused damage while traveling. You can develop your own maintenance list or check out reputable RV websites for helpful checklist resources. Always remember; when in doubt, call a professional!
  • Reduce the Clutter: RVs come in all sizes, but no matter how large or small, clutter can be a big issue and make for an extremely uncomfortable and cramped trip. The simplest way to keep your RV organized and clutter free is by designating a specific home for everything and to get creative with storage. Browse your favorite RV website for some great RV storage hacks!
  • Reserve your Spot: Depending on where your road trip plans take you, it is important to make reservations ahead of time if possible. Some RV parks and campgrounds are booked months in advance so reserve your campsite before you travel to avoid any unforeseen frustrations.​
  • RV Packing List: Packing can be extremely overwhelming, especially for families with children! The best thing you can do is create an RV packing list to make sure you bring all the essentials you and your family needs, while also trying to avoid the temptation to over-pack. Having troubles starting your list? There are also lots of free printable lists online to help get you started. Also, don’t forget to consider packing items that are often overlooked like a portable dehumidifier. RVs are subject to temperature fluctuations which can result in higher than normal levels of condensation and humidity. Too much humidity leads to those unpleasant musty smells, and the development of mold and mildew that can cause numerous health issues. Luckily, Eva-Dry can help!

The Eva-Dry 333 Mini Dehumidifier and the Eva-Dry 500 Mini Dehumidifier are both outstanding for controlling excess moisture in your RV. These dehumidifiers require no electricity, operate silently, and use eco-friendly silica gel technology that is non-toxic and spill-proof. Best of all, they can be recharged and can last up to ten years!

“Eva-Dry is the nation's leader in innovative dehumidification technology for applications in your home, business, and recreational activities,” said Matt Henson, Vice President of Business Development Eva-Dry. “By taking an Eva-Dry dehumidifier on the road, you can rest assured your home-away-from-home will be much more comfortable, without excess moisture caused by increased humidity levels.”
