Should You Repair Your RV Yourself?

November 16, 2022

RV maintenance might seem like a never ending cycle, especially if you are someone who travels year round. So rather than head to the repair shop every few months when an issue arises, you might be wondering if you can (or even should) tackle some RV repairs by yourself.

If you’re handy there are some repairs that anyone who can follow simple directions can perform. But when it comes to more serious repairs such as replacing an RV roof or having your RV’s roof professionally sealed, you should consult with a professional RV company in your area.

Small, Minor Repairs You Could Do Yourself

RV repairs vary widely in range of severity and also in range of cost. While you want to be sure your RV issues are being repaired properly, you also don’t want to spend an arm and a leg doing so. There are a few minor RV repairs you can perform without having to take your RV to the repair shop.

  • Replacing a sewer hose
  • Fixing a flat tire
  • Replacing a leaky faucet
  • Cleaning black streaks
  • Replacing torn screens
  • Repairing broken or torn interior trim

These are just a few things that some RV owners are able to tackle on their own. However, if you aren’t confident that you can do a good job with the repairs, you may want to contact Elite RV Roof and Collision to give you a guaranteed repair with warrantied services.

RV Roof Repair Requires Specialized Expertise

With a few repairs under your belt you might be tempted to think you can handle any RV repair, even one as important as getting on the roof and performing any maintenance necessary. But when it comes to RV roof repairs, you are better off investing in a professional repair, than hoping that you’ll correctly perform the work yourself. The roof of an RV is one of the most important pieces to a well-functioning and safe rig. Without good care and maintenance to your RV’s roof, you run the risk of mold, mildew, and dry rot occurring within the roof, not to mention the possibility of a soaked interior after the first bad storm you encounter.

Professional RV roof repair teams like Elite RV Roof and Collision can quickly and easily diagnose any issues that are a threat to the integrity of your RV’s roof. We use top of the line repair materials which will hold up better for your rig in the long run, as well as provide a more comfortable experience in your RV while you travel.

Professional RV Roof Sealant

When the seasonal elements are coming down around you, you don’t want to be concerned with whether your RV’s roof sealant is going to hold up and keep you and your family dry. Rather than bargaining on your own DIY sealant job that may or may not be up to par, let a trusted RV roof repair shop near you cover your back. Professional sealing will guarantee that your RV has the highest quality sealant materials to protect you and your family while you travel.

A professional team will easily be able to tell if there are underlying issues with your sealant that might prevent a new sealant job from being effective, as well as take care of the issues so you only have to bring your RV in for a once over when it’s really necessary.
