  • Winterizing Your RV

    For the most part, we never want camping season to end! Inevitably, winter creeps up on us every year, and we’re forced to take a break from camping for a few months. One of the important things to do as an RV owner is to ensure that you have winterized your RV every fall before you put it away in storage for the winter. If you do not winterize your RV, any fluids you leave in your RV could freeze in a cold snap causing the plumbing in your RV to split, burst, and potentially cause other damage as well.

    If you plan on winterizing your RV yourself, we have created this handy guide to help you out and walk you through the process. It isn’t complicated, but it does require some mechanical inclination and tools. Purchasing a winterization kit from our RV parts department and the correct fluids will be key in helping you get it done yourself.

    If you do not feel comfortable doing it yourself or you just can’t find the time, not to worry. You can make an appointment with our RV service department to have your RV winterized or come to one of our drive-through winterization events. Pay attention to our blog page or our social media accounts in the fall months to know when it will be happening.

  • De-Winterizing Your RV

    Once the long Alberta winter has passed, the snow has melted, and the grass turns green, many RVers are ecstatic to get out camping and get back to what they love doing the most. It’s not that simple though, if you’ve winterize your RV, you’ll need to de-winterize your RV and do some safety checks before you’re ready to go camping again!

    One of the most important things to check is making sure your RV is still roadworthy. Think, if this were to have a motor vehicle inspection, what would I need to have working for this RV to be safe? This means checking the tires for weather checking, ensuring they are still inflated, checking your lights to ensure they’re still functional, and more depending on the type of RV that you have.

    The winterization fluids will need to be drained, and other things that were done to winterize your RV will need to be reverted. This is also a good time to check your batteries, charge them if needed, and inspect your RV for any potential leaks or damage that could have occurred while your RV has been in storage over the winter.

    As always, if you’re not comfortable checking over your RV or doing it yourself after checking out our de-winterization guides, there is no need to worry. Simply book an appointment to have your RV de-winterized with our RV service department or visit one of our drive-through de-winterization events at Bucars RV Dealership. We’d be happy to de-winterize your RV and inspect it to ensure it is ready for you to create camping memories with your loved ones that will last a lifetime in the upcoming camping season.

In addition to upgrading lighting only using items like your lights, furnace and appliances when required, can help your batteries last longer.

  • Why is water backing up in my RV’s shower or sink?

    If a sewer smell is coming from your RV first and foremost properly empty and clean your black water tanks.
