RV Summer Service Checklist

When you bring your camper to the pros at South Thompson, we follow a strict guideline of de-winterization procedures to ensure your comfort and safety once you’re on the road. We’ll be focusing on important things like:


• Flushing your plumbing lines until all signs of antifreeze are gone, and checking carefully for leaks and plumbing issues.

Complete wheel bearing inspection and greasing - learn more about why your wheel bearings are so important here.

Full inspection of your unit, inside and out: we check tires, brakes, hitch, vents, heating and cooling, electric outlets, battery, generator, and so much more.

We check floors, ceiling, windows, doors and the exterior shell for cracks, and use unit-specific crack-filler and sealant to repair any damage we find.

Winter damage can do a number on any RV, and we repair all types of winter damage, from torn awnings, to rusty hydraulic systems and moisture damage.

“Great service from Gord and the team at South Thompson RV. On short notice they worked on my intermittent brake issue for quite awhile and charged a very fair price. This was no ordinary issue on my 28 ft 1988 Avion trailer. It took a lot of troubleshooting and redoing wiring to get to the bottom of it. Once again, thank you Gord!”
