An Exploration of Properly Maintained Automotive Suspension Components

Hi there, my name is Hedrick Simmons. Welcome to my website about automotive suspension components. My first vehicle purchase resulted in a crash course about the importance of excellent suspension components. The vehicle was bouncy and unwieldly while driving along rough roadways. At first, I thought this was normal, but as I learned more, I discovered that there was a way to fix this annoying problem. I decided to upgrade my suspension with helpful components and repair the items that exhibited wear and tear or damage. With this approach, I was able to restore my suspension components and enjoy a smooth ride in my vehicle. My site will explore these matters and much more. Come back again soon.

A Guide To Winterizing A Camper

by Brandie Gordon

Owning a camper is a fun luxury, but it also comes with a lot of responsibility. Proper maintenance is required in order to keep campers in good condition. Motorized campers or recreational vehicles (RVs) need a bit more maintenance than campers that are not motorized, which includes engine checks, oil changes, etc. However, no matter which type of camper you have, they all need to be winterized if you live in areas where the climate experiences cold months. This guide walks you through the process of winterizing your camper.


The first step is to check the vents of the camper. Most campers have roof vents, air conditioner vents, and plumbing vents. Thoroughly clean out each one of the vents prior to storing the camper away for the year. If the vents are removable, take them out and rub them with a damp cloth to remove dust or other debris. If the vents are stationary, use a feather duster and clean the vents as well as you can.


The next thing to do is to check the seals around your windows and doors. You want them to be airtight to protect your camper during the winter. If they aren't airtight, snow or water can get inside the camper and cause damage. If the seals seem to be damaged, you can apply caulk to each area that requires it. Allow the caulk to dry according to the instructions on the package.


The roof is another area that needs to remain waterproof. Using a ladder if necessary, climb on the roof and inspect it for signs of damage. If you have any vents or other openings on the roof, make sure they are sealed properly. You can also cover the entire roof with a tarp or large piece of rubber to add another layer of protection against the elements. If the camper will be outside and not stored in a shed, Securely attach the rubber or tarp so it doesn't blow away during storms.


The best place for your camper during the winter is inside a shed or other building. This gives it the most amount of protection possible during the harsh winter months. However, not everyone has the required space to store the camper. Because of this, there are many companies that allow you to store your camper on their property for a fee. You can choose to pay a monthly fee or may get a deal by paying for several months at one time if you plan to keep it there all winter.
