Check Your Critical Nuts and Bolts - Routine RV Maintenance Tip
An RV maintenance tip reminding you to check your RVs nuts and bolts for proper torque. I often check critical areas to ensure none of the nuts and bolts loosen. It is also a good time to visually inspect things looking for corrosion or damage. A little preventative maintenance can ward off a bad day on the road if something loose gives way.
Over the years, I've acquired the necessary wrenches and sockets. From the parts manuals, I created a list of the specific torque settings required. It's handy to do the work myself rather than have to count on others. I have peace of mind that the job is done right.
