KNOW BEFORE YOU BUY

GET THE SUPPORT AND EXPERT ADVICE YOU DESERVE

Buying an RV is an exciting moment – it’s like buying a new house. Just like a house, you should inspect the RV and the contracts thoroughly. Moreover, there are a series of maintenance procedures that must be completed within a very short period of time. Unfortunately, we found that many new RV owners are too anxious to drive off in their RV and usually forget to learn about the vital maintenance and procedural tasks for keeping their RV in good operating condition.

The RV Advisor is here to educate RV consumers before and after they purchase an RV. Our goal is to be the #1 resource for RV owners. This is why we promote proper operating practices and maintenance of RVs, provide virtual mechanical support, and have reviewed the leading service providers’ programs to offer our members the best options at the lowest prices.

In addition to the services, you will find valuable content on numerous RV topics and one of the fastest-growing communities of RV owners, enthusiasts, and experts who are ready to help guide you through your RVing experience. Joining The RV Advisor is a must for anyone looking to learn, engage, and share experiences with members around the world!

LEARN MORE ABOUT SOME OF THE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW AS AN RV OWNER


  • Did you know that, regardless of the price, all RV manufacturers deliver new RVs to dealers without any sealant or caulking? They only use putty tape to temporarily hold things together. It is the customer’s responsibility to make sure the RV is properly sealed within 90 days of purchase. The warranty will be voided if you don't adhere to these strict maintenance requirements.

  • Did you know that, when purchasing a new RV with an Onan generator on-board, a mandatory oil change by a certified Onan dealer must be completed in the first 20 hours of use? Otherwise, the warranty will be voided.

  • Did you know that, when purchasing insurance, you can get an Agreed Value policy for a little bit more than the standard ACV?

  • Did you know that over the past 10 years, most RV manufacturers have been installing Chinese tires? Even Michelin has a Chinese-made tire that is extremely inferior.

  • Did you know that, when buying a new RV, it is sometimes better to have the dealer register it as used?

  • Do you know how to tell if a used RV has been well maintained? Look at the seals around the windows and openings. If the caulk looks fresh, then the seller may be trying to cover something up. If the caulk looks a few months old, then the seller has likely performed regular maintenance.

  • Did you know that some RV dealers charge more if you pay in cash instead of financing it?

  • Did you know that if you are in the market to purchase a vehicle to tow your trailer, the most important specs are the rear end gear ratio because it determines your towing limits?

  • Did you know that all appliances, including the water heater, water pumps, and just about everything except interior trim, are covered by the manufacturer’s appliances warranty? Your owner’s manual should advise you on how to file a direct claim when needed.

  • Do you know why it’s important to pay a dealer to do a PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection)? It’s because there is almost no quality control performed by the manufacturer when the vehicle leaves the assembly line. It is common for RVs to be delivered to a dealer without their water lines attached to the water heater.

  • Do you know how to tell if a roof is, or has been leaking? First, check for stains or discolored ceilings. Then, check if there are any musty odors, which usually means there is mildew.

  • Did you know that adding slide covers to your slide rooms prevents 90% of all slide room leaks?
