Common RV Problems in Brooksville, FL

Like passenger vehicles, RV problems depend on the make and model. Because the engine is designed for heavy-duty work, the suspension, tires, wheels, and other components that support the vehicle are built stronger. 

However, common problems still happen, like: 

  • Brakes and brake systems repair: This is more evident if you do a lot of mountain driving.
  • Cooling system repairs: This is especially the case if you often use your RV and tow a heavy vehicle or trailer.
  • Overworking alternator: The alternator must constantly charge at least one battery in the engine compartment. It also charges the house batteries on several models. While an RV alternator is usually bigger to handle the larger load, it is still a lot to ask to charge the engine battery and one or more house batteries. This is especially the case when the temperature swings too low or too high (as it often does in Brooksville, FL).
  • Fluid leaks: Older RVs in Brooksville, FL could develop fluid leaks. Examples include oil, transmission fluid, rear-end fluid, brake fluid, coolant, and power steering fluid leaks.
  • Other issues: The RV could have other problems in addition to mechanical ones. Examples include leaks in the plumbing, hot water heater failure, house air conditioning failure, and appliance failure.
