Investing in a new RV is a great decision for any couple or family; it’s an affordable, fun and exciting way to pack up your gear and hit the road. Jayco RVs from Caravanland are tough, reliable, and built to last for years and years. But any vehicle needs to be serviced and maintained on a regular basis. So how do you make sure you’re taking the best care of your Jayco RV? We recommend you focus on maintaining your RV, rather than waiting for things to go wrong and potentially forking out for repairs or facing bigger issues down the track.
Here are some of our top tips:
Take advantage of your warranty
Every new Jayco RV from Caravanland in Perth comes with a 12-month warranty. That means you’re guaranteed cover when it comes to any defects or issues, you’re covered for anything inside or outside the vehicle, and all servicing during those 12 months will be done free of charge by experienced Jayco technicians. Make sure you take advantage of that warranty; if you hear or see something that doesn’t seem quite right on your caravan, don’t just leave it or put it to the bottom of the list. It doesn’t matter where you are in the country, there’s a Jayco service agent nearby to help you out.
Check your caravan before the big trip
Our caravans are made for trips of all kinds: short, long, rough, easy, and everything in between. We want you out there enjoying the wide open road, not worrying about your caravan. So, make sure it’s in tip top shape before you head out on your holiday. Give it a once-over, and if you notice anything, get in touch with your local Jayco service agent. And remember, we offer three years of complimentary roadside assistance with your new van – just in case something happens along the way.
Use our tips and tricks
If you’ve already purchased your Caravanland RV, you’ll know that we email every customer a FAQ booklet full of helpful tips. We know it’s easy to forget about the booklet or leave it for later, but we promise, it is full of hints that can help you maintain and look after your RV. Here’s a few of our top tips:
- We recommend that you get your RV serviced every 10,000km or annually – whichever comes first
- Try to keep your doors and windows closed when you’ve got the air-con running
- When you’re putting your RV away after a trip, make sure you drain your water tanks and turn off the gas
- Make sure you regularly check that your lights are working and your brake controller is in good working order
