Essential RV Parts to Keep on Hand

Even the most well-maintained RV can encounter an occasional issue, forcing you to abandon your trip mid-way. Sometimes, this can even threaten your safety and the safety of others on the road. Having a few critical RV parts handy can help get you out of a sticky situation and continue your vacation. Here are a few spare components you want to keep on hand.

Gas Regulator and Water Pump Parts

Your LP gas regulator helps control the flow of propane between your gas tank and appliances. If it fails to function smoothly, you won’t have warm water in the shower or fresh food in your refrigerator. Having a spare regulator will keep your appliances safe and functional.

You also want to keep your RV’s water system in good working order by having an overhaul kit handy.

Spare Tire and Jack

Next, keep a spare tire and jack handy onboard your RV. A flat tire can affect your traveling experience and put your safety at risk, especially when traveling at night. You also don’t want to be stranded by the side of the road with no way to change a flat tire.

We often recommend that our customers check their tires, including any spare tires, before each trip and ensure the jack is free of rust and damage. A reliable spare tire and a jack can help get you out of a sticky situation, so keep these items handy.

Electrical Parts

Finally, get a few spare fuses and lightbulbs before departure. Although small, these components are critical for your RV’s electrical system, and you want to keep a few replacement pieces handy during your trips. When buying fuses, ensure you get models that match those in your rig—you don’t want to be stuck with a fuse that won’t work. You also want to replace any yellowed lights first, then hit the road.
