When the first signs of spring arrive in Kamloops, you’ll want your RV to be road-ready for another exciting season of adventures! But before you can enjoy some fun in the sun, you’ll need to get your trailer, camper or motorhome in tip-top shape so that you can road trip safely and comfortably all season long. The de-winterization process can be tedious and time consuming - that’s why the pros at South Thompson RV are here to save you the headache and help you prep your unit for summer.
One of the most important de-winterization steps is flushing your RV lines of antifreeze. Our technicians have the hoses, freshwater source and disposal sites to safely flush your plumbing lines until all traces of pink RV antifreeze are gone. We also carefully check all pipes, tubes, toilets, showers, tanks and appliances for leaks, and refill your water tanks for you.
At South Thompson, we take safety seriously. That’s why your RV de-winterization service includes a complete wheel bearing inspection and unit-specific wheel bearing greasing. Wheel bearings are small parts that pack a big punch when it comes to the safe operation of your RV. Road trip with confidence knowing that we make sure yours are working smoothly!
We inspect your unit from top to bottom, including tire pressure, brakes, vents, trailer hitch and trailer lights, heating and cooling, battery and generator recharging and reconnecting, plumbing system leaks and much more. If you have a motorhome, we’ll also do a full under-the-hood inspection, including all oil and fluid levels and a complete engine check.
No matter where you stored your unit during the winter, debris and cold weather can cause minor damages to any RV. We give your trailer’s exterior shell, windows, floors, ceiling and doors a careful inspection, using unit-specific crack-filler and sealants to repair any cracks and holes that we find along the way.
There is a long list of damages that can occur over the winter, and our team is experienced at finding even the smallest concerns and repairing them now so that they don’t become bigger problems while you’re on the road. We’ll check and repair things like hydraulic systems in slideouts, awning tears, stiff hinges, tire replacement, mechanics and so much more.
