RV 101 Guides and useful information by RV Expert Mark Polk

Let me start by saying, be careful where you get your RV information from on the Internet. Below I am providing some information on RV topics I get a lot of questions about:

Important Checks to Make Prior to Purchasing a Used RV  Sometimes a used RV can be a great buy. Used RVs have already suffered the brunt of depreciation, many are only lightly used for a good price, and you will more than likely have an affordable monthly payment. But, on the other hand a used RV could be a disaster if you don’t know what to look for: RV 101 Guide – Buying a Used RV – Pro Tips Before you Buy

Proper Care and Use of the RV Holding Tanks Preventive maintenance on RV holding tanks is not only about maintaining the tanks, it’s also about properly using the RV holding tanks, primarily the RV black water holding tank. What you Need to Know about RV Holding Tanks

Five Towing Mistakes RV Owners Make to Help Prevent them from Happening to you: Safely and properly towing a trailer is comprised of many factors. * The tow vehicle and trailer need to be properly matched. * You need all the correct hitch components. * You need a thorough understanding of topics like tires, weights, hitching and unhitching. * You need experience actually towing the trailer down the road: RV 101 Guide – 5 Trailer Towing Mistakes RV Owners Make

My top 7 Steps to Winterize your RV Plumbing System It’s always sad to come to the realization that another camping season is winding down.  Depending on where you live, part of this realization is preparing the RV for winter storage so it will be ready to go camping again next spring.  A big part of winterizing your RV is to protect the RV water system from potential damage, caused by exposure to freezing temperatures. Frozen and damaged water lines are in fact the most common problem related to not winterizing your RV, or not properly winterizing your RV. The RV plumbing system is the most vulnerable system to damage caused by plummeting temperatures. The good news is, it is easy to protect the RV water system from this potential threat: RV 101 Guide – 7 Easy Steps to Winterizing your RV Plumbing System

Let’s talk about RV Water Heaters Most RVs come equipped with a water heater. There are some exceptions, like pop-ups and other small RVs. RV water heaters come in different sizes, different modes of operation, and are made by different manufacturers. The tank size and the method used to heat the water will dictate the amount of hot water you have available, and the amount of time it takes to heat or re-heat the water. The majority of RV water heaters have a 6-gallon water tank, but some larger and more expensive RVs have 10-gallon or 12-gallon water heater tanks. To keep pace with technology, tankless or demand type water heaters are more prominent in today’s RV marketplace: RV 101 Guide – RV Water Heater Use and Care

Portable Generator Use with RVs If you are camping off the grid, and plan to use a portable generator for 120-volt AC power, there are a few things you need to know, and some safety precautions you need to be aware of: RV 101 Guide – Portable Generator Use and Safety

Confusing Topics in the World of Trailer Towing Understanding Tow Vehicle and Trailer Weights & Trailer Tongue Weight with a Weight Distribution Hitch. That’s a mouthful. My goal with this guide is: To explain these confusing topics in layman terms, so it is easier to understand. To help you make a good choice when it comes to properly and safely matching a tow vehicle with a trailer, in regards to trailer tongue weight and towing: RV 101 Guide – Trailer Towing Myths, Weights and Confusion Explained

Most RV Owners Understand the Importance of Maintaining Proper Tire Inflation Pressure The problem is, if you wait until you’re on the road to check tire pressure the tires are too hot for correct evaluation. Checking the inflation pressure when you stop to refuel doesn’t make sense either; you will get higher pressure readings and if you let air out the tires they are under-inflated when they are cold again: RV 101 Guide – Polk’s Top 7- Selecting a Portable Air Compressor For RV Tires
