As mobile RV technicians, HDRV Mobile has seen firsthand the consequences of failing to winterize your travel trailer properly. Neglecting to winterize can lead to many issues that can be costly and time-consuming to repair.
One of the most common issues we encounter is frozen pipes. Water left inside can freeze, causing lines to burst, leak, and cause water damage. This can be a costly repair and can also lead to mold growth if not addressed promptly.
Another issue we often see is damage to the water heater. If the water heater is not drained and flushed correctly, the water left inside can freeze and damage the tank or the heating element. This can result in costly repairs or even the need for a complete replacement.
You must winterize the exterior of your trailer to avoid damage to the paint and body. Moisture can get trapped inside and freeze, causing cracks and bubbles in the paint or even warping the metal. This can be a costly repair and affect your trailer’s resale value.
Finally, if you have any appliances or electronics in your trailer, they can also be affected by the cold weather. Batteries can freeze, and electronics can malfunction or be affected by moisture and condensation.
At HDRV Mobile, we recommend correctly winterizing your travel trailer to prevent these issues. If your rig was not properly winterized this past winter, our team of experienced technicians can diagnose and repair the damages caused by the long winter. With our help, you can minimize the costly repairs and enjoy the warm season in your RV.
