Provide our Parts Specialists with as Much Information as Possible
Unfortunately finding an RV part is unlike finding a part for your car or truck, with RVs it can be very challenging. Unlike the automotive industry, it is often not possible for an RV parts person to find out what parts were used on a specific model or year of RV. If you are looking for a specific part for a refrigerator, water heater or awning your RV parts specialist will need to gather as much information as they can from you. If you’re looking for a part for an appliance we will need to know the make and model of the appliance itself, if you’re looking for a part for an awning we would need to know the manufacturer, model/product number and sometimes even the serial number. Providing as much information to our parts team as possible will help assure that we can find the right part for you. This is why items like pictures or videos of the part you need or of any tags or information plates on the item it came from can go a long way.
RV Parts are Not Standard
One of the most common questions we hear at the parts department here at Bucars is “aren’t these all standard?” Unfortunately RV parts are not standard. Let’s use vent lids as an example. RVers will regularly come into our parts department to replace a vent lid that has been damaged by wind or hail. Once they start learning about the vent lids we have available they are usually surprised there are different styles of hinges. Unfortunately with RV parts we are unable to look up the style of hinge that is used on their RV. This means the only way we can guarantee a proper replacement vent lid is if we had photo of the vent lid hinge taken from the outside up on the roof. This scenario is true for many different RV replacement parts. This is why it is always important to provide our RV parts specialists with as much information as possible, and if you can provide us with photos or videos this will aid us in providing you with the help you need.
