Steps Inspection & Lubrication

Venture RV Maintenance Tips steps

The steps on your unit are exposed to weather elements that can cause damage over time. So, it’s important to do some occasional maintenance.

First, check the steps for any nicks or scratches. If you come across any, seal them with an automotive grade primer to prevent rust. Once they are sealed, cover the damaged area with an automotive grade high-gloss paint.

The step mechanism should also be lubricated every 30 to 60 days. Clean the area around pivot points, then lubricate them with an automotive grade, non-staining lubricant. Silicone spray or dry lubricant also work well for monthly use as you travel.

Lubricate the steps every fall, spring, and at least once during summer travels.
