What do I need to do to prepare for a successful RV Inspection?  Here is where you, our Client, can make an invaluable contribution to the success of the RV Inspection by seeing that all of these items are completed the day before the inspection.

Here are eleven vital items that we ask our clients to have done (by the seller or his representative) to the RV in preparation for the inspection:

  1. Hookup the 30 or 50 amp power cord to the correct receptacle on the power pedestal or power source.
  2. Park the RV on a stable, dry, flat parking surface.
  3. Connect a freshwater hose and turn the water on.  Make sure the fresh water tank is at least 1/4 full.
  4. Connect a sewer hose(s) from the RV to the septic tank.
  5. Make sure that the propane tank is at least 1/4 full.
  6. If the RV is winterized, it must be fully de-winterized prior to the inspection start time.
  7. Turn on the refrigerator at least 12 hours before the inspection begins.
  8. Check all of the remote controls for proper operation. Replace batteries as needed.
  9. Place all RV manuals and manufacturer “build sheet” documents on the dining table or counter.
  10. Place all keys for the RV on the dining table or counter.
  11. Unlock all storage bays before the inspection.
  12. Please have the RV ready for inspection at the agreed start time.

Your Part 2: Full Hookups

For a complete inspection, we need “full hookups” to be available:

  • electric
  • water
  • sewer

That way, all of these items and their systems can be verified.

If full hookups are not available at the current RV location, ask the seller to rent a site for an overnight stay at a local RV park with a delayed checkout the next day until the inspection is completed.
