1. Replacing Leaky Faucets

Repairing dripping faucets and plumbing fixtures is pretty straightforward so anyone can do these simple RV repairs. First, look for a plumbing faucet that matches the sink’s dimensions. Next, turn off the water in the RV, dismantle the old faucet by loosening the nuts, disconnect the flexible extensions from the tap, then install your shiny new fitting.

3. Replacing RV Flat Tires

Changing a flat tire is a skill every RVer should know. However, depending on the size of your camper, you may or may not be able to fix a flat tire. While it’s not advisable to replace tires on the large and heavy motorhomes and travel trailers, you can do it on smaller RVs.

The most important thing is to prepare before the crisis strikes. You’ll want to assemble all necessary tools and equipment, including an RV Jack and leveler to raise the height, a lug wrench, and a spare tire. 

Practice how to raise the jack, remove lug nuts, fit a spare tire, and tighten the lug nuts at home. While on the road, always find a secure place to pull over before you begin.
