Camper Van / RV Vehicle Maintenance & Service Tips
- Beware fuel stations, particularly diesel pumps, often fail (overflow, spill, leak, etc.). Overfilling can cause damage to your vehicle's emission controls. Take pictures, ask inside for refund / report incident, document who you talked with, file a credit card chargeback or BBB complaint if you paid cash (cash not recommended for this reason). Avoid Arco. For full service or in Oregon, be sure to tell the worker not to top off.
- Do not get any major service done anywhere unless they have a great warranty on parts and labor. If you travel a lot, choose a national chain. Beware some national chains (Freighliner for example) do not offer warranties good at other locations. Only chose those that do.
