3 Tips To Prevent Damage To Your RV's Windshield And Glass

If you own an RV, you probably know how important it is to take good care of your RV's windshield and windows. These are a few tips that can help you prevent damage to the glass in your RV.

1. Change the Window Seals When Necessary

First of all, take a look at the seals that surround the windows in your RV. These seals help keep out air and moisture and also help hold your windows in place. If they become damaged, they could allow air and moisture to leak into your RV and could even cause your windows to be more prone to damage. To prevent all of these issues, make sure that you check out your window seals on a regular basis. Then, when they appear to be cracked or otherwise damaged, you can replace them to help protect your RV glass and your RV as a whole.

2. Be Careful When Storing Your RV

You might not use your RV all year long. If this is the case, then you may store it for part or even most of the year. Make sure that you store it in a place and way so that you do not have  to worry about the windshield or glass. For example, you will want to park it in a safe place so that you do not have to worry about vandals breaking the windows, and you will also want to make sure that it's shielded from hail, falling limbs and other things that can crack the glass. Additionally, make sure that you clean the windows often to prevent mold, which can affect the integrity of your RV glass and can eventually cause damage.

3. Keep Your Windshield Nice and Clean

You might drive in all sorts of weather conditions in your RV. Making sure that you clean your windshield and windows regularly while you're on the road can help you keep an eye out for chips and other damage that might need to be repaired. These things can be tough to see if your glass is dirty, but you can spot them and address them if you clean the glass often.

As you can see, if you have an RV and would like to take good care of your windshield and other glass, then following these tips can help. If you do find that you need to repair or replace your RV's windshield or any of its other glass, consider working with an auto glass professional, such as at Capital Collision Center Inc, who should be able to assist you.
