RV travel trip number 3: Water gaskets are important for you peace of mind.
Your RV has a lot of water outlets. Whether it is the sinks in the kitchen or the bathroom an outside bar or just the water intake and outflow hose. What will inevitably happen, even in new RVs is that the little rubber gasket will not be set right or be worn out and you will need to replace it.
Nothing is worse than sitting at an RV park and getting a knock on your door that water is leaking all over your neighbor’s space and you don’t have a gasket to fix it. In most cases, your new RV veteran pal will have one for you but look the part and pull out a gasket and fix it! No harm no foul.
Inside you are less likely to experience an overflow of water or a leaking outlet that runs down the road but that damn dripping into a sink at 3 a.m. can suck. Many people don’t bring vehicles with them when they travel and that can be good and bad. It cuts on fuel costs and saves money when you park but if you need to run out for something you forgot, like a gasket, you have to tear down everything to take the RV. That sucks.
