Noob: general maintance on Reflection 5th wheel

We are not new to RV’ing but recently upgraded from a travel trailer to the Reflection 5th wheel. During the PDI they said a ton of things but really never address true owner maintenance on the rig. What should I be doing on a regular basis?

@Farva it is fairly simple.

  • Inspect the roof, seams and seals, around the vents and any other penetrations of trailer. Use self-leveling Dicor or equivalent to patch up any spots that are missing or exposed.

I also recommend Eternabond tape, put this around the vents and covers after the Dicor had hardened (48 hours after applied). I would also tape the seams, this is a permanent fix.

  • If you have lead acid battery, make sure to top off the water with distilled water.

  • Adjust the drum brakes with a spoon

  • Treat the seals around your doors, windows and slideout’s (not for swintek gear rack)
