Common RV Problems and Camper Parts to Solve Them


We sell camper parts because we know how important it is to make sure that the RV, camper or trailer is running smoothly. Whether you and your family like to take it out on weekends, save your RV for a summer getaway or are on the road more often than not, making sure that everything is functioning properly for a smooth and safe vacation is necessary to being able to enjoy yourself. Fortunately, if something goes wrong, we have the parts necessary to fix it.


Common RV problems


When taken care of properly, an RV or camper can last for a long time. Still, like with anything, there are going to be problems from time to time. Some of the more common ones are below:


#1. Toilet malfunctions


Toilet trouble can be a real problem. If a toilet is continuously running, it is going to use way too much water. Additionally, if something goes wrong with the rubber seal around the toilet or the valve, it is possible that it could leak. Sometimes this requires just fixing a part or two while in other cases, the entire toilet will need to be repaired.


#2. Water issues


RVs need a water pump so that the water can flow from the outside source and into the sink, toilet, shower, etc. Unfortunately, the water pump can break and the waterline can burst. This is more likely to happen during the cold season so it is important to weatherize any RV or camper. If one does break, repairing it will be absolutely essential before taking the camper out on the next trip.


#3. Electrical problems


A modern RV has a lot of electrical parts. Many of the camper parts we sell have to do with the electrical functions of the RV. This involves everything from the lights that turn on when you flip the switch to the electrical going to the microwave and even the turn signal. If anything goes wrong with the electrical in a camper, we either have the parts or can get the parts that are needed to fix it.


#4. Leaks


Leaks are one of the biggest problems with RVs. Regardless of the size or class, when an RV's roof begins to leak it can damage everything inside. To prevent this, we recommend that everyone park their camper in a garage, under an awning, carport or at least covered with a tarp. These basic steps can help to prevent damage caused by things like tree branches or debris in a windstorm. However, if a leak does occur, bringing it in for repair will be the best way to ensure the camper can function in the future.


#5. Battery problems


If the battery goes bad, the RV will not be able to run without being hooked up to electricity. This makes it difficult to visit anywhere that does not have electricity so some of the more obscure or primitive campgrounds are off the table. We recommend putting in a new battery and this is something we can assist with.


#6. Tire problems


We recommend inspecting the tires prior to hitting the road. If a tire blows out it can cause catastrophic damage and potentially ruin the RV. Make sure that the tires are fully inflated and that there is enough tread to avoid this. If a tire does blowout and the RV is damaged, give us a call. We are likely to have the camper parts necessary to complete the repair.
