RV Manufactures
As an RV owner one of the many items on your list of annual maintenance should be roof related cleaning and care. RVs come factory standard with either
aluminum, fiberglass, thermoplastic olefin (TPO) rubber, or ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber. While fiberglass and aluminum roofs are particularly
low maintenance, they increase the cost of your RV, and add a significant amount of weight to your vehicle. This leaves EPDM roofs the most standard in the
industry, particularly with small and lighter weight RVs. RV roof maintenance starts with identifying what kind of material is on your roof.

So how would you go about figuring out which type of RV roof you have? The best way is to find it in your owner’s manual, but we know that isn’t always an option. If
you can find it then it will state the type of roof material and even offer RV roof maintenance instructions

Featuring Dicor roofing systems Dicor Products has been a leading supplier of component products to
RV manufacturers since 1984, most notably as a supplier of premium roofing products. We are also very
well established in the RV after market, where we're well known for roofing repair
Hello folks my name is Jim Hargrove . I have been working on Rv's since 1985. I started at Camping World in El cajon CA.  years later I moved up to Oregon to work for
Monaco in the early 90,s. Enough of the cold weather I settled back in San Diego. I worked for Beaudry RV in San Marcos for ten year just before the great  recession
swallowed them up I started RV Expert Mobile Service in 2006.
I work out of Santee CA. I service the San Diego area. I specialize in LP Appliances such as RV refrigerators, RV water heaters RV furnaces. I can replace roof top air
conditioners as well. I also can repair fresh water leaks and replace most RV toilets. I have most water fittings on my truck and can usually find the leak and repair it   
within the hour.
I also replace awning and awning fabrics. I stock most vinyl awning fabrics in lengths between 14 feet and 21 feet. In the color shades of blue, grey and brown. I can also
get maroon, green or checker flag. I use Dometic awning material.
RV Expert mobile service can replace rubber roof material. We strip the roof, peeling off all the EPDM rubber roof material , vents and moldings. If there is wood damage
I can repair that as well. Then we roll out a new one piece of Dicor roofing system. Install all new vents and seal it up. The manufactures offer a 12 years guarantee in
the material and 5 years on the my labor. Don't be fooled by paying a company less money for a roll on liquid rubber just have the sun dry it out in 1 or 2 years then you
are back to square one. We have replaced hundreds of rubber roof material and offer quality work at a reasonable price.
I replace converters and batteries and offer some electrical trouble shooting.

                                               RV Experts 10 basic maintenance tips for you Rv

1 Like cars, Motor homes need their oil and filters changed at regular intervals. This is necessary to keep your engine running properly and if left undone could  
eventually cause your engine to seize. This could cost you as much as $10,000. Most manufacturers suggest an oil change every 3,000 to 4,500 miles, but you should
check your owner's manual for advice on your specific vehicle.
2 Servicing your RV generator is important as well. Again, check the manufacturer's recommendations for how often the oil and filter should be changed. Ignoring this
chore could cost you as much as $10000 in repairs. Remember to run your generator regularly when your RV is stored too. It likes to be ran at least 1 hour a month.  If
you don't, it could cost you up to $800 to take care of the build-up on the unit's carburetor.
3 Replacing the air, fuel, coolant and hydraulic filters in your RV should also be done regularly. Damage costing upwards of $3,500 could result from increased fuel
usage or overheating issues with the cooling system and oxidization in the hydraulic system.
4 Inspect the roof seals and seams of your RV every six months. Water damage can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars to repair if it's not taken care of immediately.
5 Keeping your brakes maintained is important for your safety and those of everyone else on the road as well.
6 Keep your waste water system in good condition by using biodegrable RV toilet paper. I keep mine completely empty while it is stored
7 If you have a RV rubber roof you should also have a roof inspection at least twice a year.
8 Check your tire pressure and lug nuts before every trip.
9 Check your batteries before your trip. Deep cycle batteries last 3-5 years and should be replaced after their life cycle is complete.
10 Take your battery out during the winter months and store it somewhere warm. They have the possiblity to freeze and break, voiding the warranty and rendering them
1. The first step to maintaining your awnings is to understand more about the different types of awning fabrics. Fabric used on RV awnings is one of two types,
acrylic or vinyl. Acrylic fabric is a woven cloth that lets air circulate through the fabric. This air circulation allows the fabric to dry quickly when it gets wet. Acrylic
fabrics are water repellent, but not waterproof. If you have experience tent camping you know that you shouldn’t touch the underside of the tent when it’s wet.
Touching the wet fabric allows water to seep through the fabric. The same applies to an acrylic awning fabric. Vinyl awning fabric is mildew resistant, but not
necessarily mildew proof. Mildew can form on the dirt and dust that collects on the vinyl fabric. The mildew will be worse in high temperatures, high humidity and
if the fabric is stored when it is wet.

2. When you open the awnings for the first time each year, or if an awning has been stored for a while, you will need to inspect the awning fabric for any signs
of mildew or stains. Remember that vinyl awnings will mildew. To prevent dirt from imbedding in the woven fabric of an acrylic awning fabric, you should simply
hose the fabric off on a routine basis. Avoid scrubbing acrylic awning fabric. Scrubbing can remove the water retardant finish. For stubborn stains, blot the
approved cleaner on the acrylic fabric with a sponge or soft cloth.

3. For more difficult stains or mildew on a vinyl awning fabric, use an aftermarket commercial cleaner made just for awning fabrics. One method that seems to
work well is to spray the inside and outside of the awning fabric with the appropriate cleaner and then roll it up and let it sit for several minutes. This distributes
the cleaner over the entire surface of the awning fabric and allows the cleaner time to work. Open the awning and thoroughly rinse both sides of the fabric. It
may be necessary to scrub stubborn stains with a brush on a vinyl awning fabric before rinsing. You can clean the awning hardware with the same cleaner you
use to wash the RV.
