Get a Lifetime Warranty with your New RV

Camper Clinic II now offers  a Lifetime Warranty on Every New RV

Campfire_and_Guitar_WebWhen I bought my first Airstream RV in 2008, I’d have loved to have had a lifetime warranty for my new RV. I was new to the RV lifestyle, so I had lots of questions and concerns. But I knew I loved travel and the outdoors. I also knew I was at a point in my life where I would appreciate a few creature comforts. I quickly learned how to operate and maintain my RV, and that RV gave me lots of happy family memories I wouldn’t trade for the world. But the peace of mind that came with the warranty would’ve been awesome.

The great news is that my next RV will come with a lifetime warranty, because starting today, Camper Clinic II will be including the RV Warranty Forever program with every new RV they sell (including Airstreams!).

If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering, “What does it cost?” and “What’s the catch?”

RV Warranty Forever Lifetime Warranty

The warranty is included at no additional charge, and there is no catch. It’s very straightforward. Here’s how it works:

  • You do have to perform annual maintenance on your RV. (Yes, it has to be done professionally. No, it doesn’t have to be done at Camper Clinic II, although they’ve got a great service department.) We all do it for our cars and trucks – we can certainly do it for our RVs as well.
  • Send your Annual Maintenance Record Coupon to RV Warranty Forever.
  • That’s it. You’re now covered for as long as you own your RV. There’s no deductible, and the program pays 100% parts and labor for the covered components.

This lifetime warranty is backed by the largest A-rated insurance company in the automotive industry, so you can buy your next RV from Camper Clinic II with confidence.

To learn more, call Camper Clinic II: 800-781-7848, or visit them at 15855 South IH-35 in Buda, TX. They’ll also be at the Boat and RV Show in Austin January 16-19!

How to Prep your RV for Spring

Here’s a 13-Point Checklist for Preparing your RV for Spring

StabilizerBelieve it or not, the first day of spring is just eight days away! Which means it’s time for a little travel trailer spring preparation. I made a quick checklist of the items on my to-do list. Let me know if you think of anything else I’ve missed!

  1. Did you winterize your RV? If so, you’ll need to de-winterize it, drain any antifreeze from the tanks and lines, and flush and sanitize the entire system. (You really do not want leftover antifreeze in your drinking water.) I could spend an entire blog post on this process, but you should be able to find the best recommendations for your RV in your owner’s manual.
  2. Inspect the water system by checking the water faucets for leaks and checking the operation of the toilet.
  3. Give your camper a good scrub.  This does two things. First, you’ll look good rolling down the road, and second, you’ll be able to check for little details like leaks around window seals and doors, and leaks in the roof around any roof vents.
  4. Lubricate everything that needs lubricating. This includes window seals, stabilizers, jacks, hinges, steps, etc.
  5. Open the awning and clean it and inspect it for any wear and tear.
  6. Check out the tires. How’s the tread? Any signs of rot? How’s the tire pressure?
  7. Consider greasing the wheel bearings now. If you don’t want to do it yourself, schedule service with Camper Clinic II.
  8. How are the batteries holding up? Do they keep a good charge? Or is it time to replace them?
  9. Give the interior a good, detailed cleaning.
  10. Test the appliances.
  11. Test your heat pump and air conditioner. Clean or change the filters.
  12. Test any smoke or carbon monoxide alarms, and check out your fire extinguisher? Is it out of date?
  13. If your state requires an inspection sticker, is yours up to date? (Hint: Texas does require an inspection!AwningAlternatively, you can take the easy way out on your RV maintenance checklist for spring, as I sometimes do. The good folks in the Camper Clinic II service department are always standing by to help. Every so often, I have them do a full inspection on my Airstream so I can keep it in tip top shape. Their experienced eyes can always detect little minor repairs before they become big issues out on the road, and I figure that’s money well spent!

Here’s to a fun-filled Spring! And be sure to let me know of anything else you’d recommend including on the checklist!
