Owner Maintenance Checks MP73

• When You Stop for Fuel, or Weekly

Check engine oil level.

Look for low or under-inflated tires.

• At Least Monthly

Check tire pressure, including your spare.

Check coolant level in the coolant recovery reservoir.

Check windshield washer fluid, brake fluid and power steering fluid levels.

Check operation of all exterior lamps, including brake lamps, turn signals and hazard warning flashers.

• Air Filter - Periodically (a minimum of every 2 weeks of operation) remove the return air filter located behind the

return air grille and wash the filter with soap and warm water, let dry, and then reinstall. NEVER run the air conditioner without

the air filter in place. This will plug the unit evaporator coil with dirt and may substantially degrade the performance of the unit

over time. Thermostat Manual

• At Least Every Three Months MP74

• Flush black water holding tank. Use a hose or bucket to fill the tank through the toilet, and dump.

• Flush grey water holding tank. Use a hose or bucket to fill the tank through the galley sink, and dump.

• Flush and sanitize fresh water tanks.

Flush by filling the tanks completely using the gravity fills, open the tank isolator valve, and drain using the freshwater tank

drain underneath the right side of the driver's doorsill. It will sometimes take an hour or more for the internal tank to drain

through the external tank. You can speed the process up by selecting the internal tank with the tank selector lever and

running the water pump and the outside shower faucet. Remember to put it back to the exterior tank after you're done.

Sanitize by adding 1/2 cup chlorine bleach to each tank, fill with water, let sit for at least two hours, and drain.

Flush tanks again. You can add 1/2 cup vinegar add while you flush to help dissipate the chlorine smell.

Information on the location of these valves is in the HOWTO: Potable Water Use section.

• At Least Twice A Year

Check windshield wiper operation. Clean wiper blades with clean cloth dampened with washer fluid.

Wiper blades should be replaced at least once a year.

Check radiator, heater and air-conditioning hoses for leaks or damage.

Check for worn tires and loose wheel lug nuts.

Check parking brake system - put the brake on and see if it will hold on a moderate hill.

If not, get it repaired.

Check head lamp alignment - shine your low beam headlights on a wall. The light patterns

should be the same height.Measure headlight height at the vehicle with a yardstick -

the light patterns should be the almost same height or slightly less with your vehicle level.

If not, get the headlights aligned.

Check lap and shoulder belts for wear and function. Replace any belts with frayed spots or that do not smoothly retract

into

their holders.

Inspect appliance vents to ensure they are free from dirt, insects, spider webs and/or nests.

Inspect black water tank vent and remove any debris or other obstructions. The black water tank vent is on the roof,

passenger side, in the bathroom area.

Clean air conditioner filter. See air conditioner manual for details.

Thoroughly clean and wax the roof of the van. To wash the solar panel (if installed), use a garden hose to rinse dirt off the

panel. Do not scrub surface with a brush or otherwise apply any abrasive material. Rinsing the panel two or three times a

year to remove excess dirt is all you need to do to keep the panel operating at full output.

• At Least Once a Year

Lubricate all door hinges, locks and latches, especially the exposed hinges on exterior doors. These will freeze up and

cause

damage to the doors if neglected. Have appliances tested and cleaned.

Wax & polish and protect exterior surfaces. The wheels are coated aluminum - there is no bare aluminum on the vehicle,

so

do not use aluminum polish on any surface of your Roadtrek.

To prevent water from entering your vehicle, avoid spraying water directly into exterior vents or grills. Do not use a

power

washer to clean your Roadtrek - damage to the paint, removal of decals, and water leaks will result. Hand washing or

commercial car washes accommodating large vehicles are the best way to keep your Roadtrek clean.
