Regular maintenance is the most important aspect of owning just about anything. A camper, trailer or RV can be an expensive investment, but can yield years of fun, joy and memories if taken care of properly. The number one destroyer of a camper or RV is mother nature. Water damage can quickly turn your home away from home from your favorite resort into a deep dark money pit. Taking care of your wheel bearings, brakes and tires is just as important. Nothing ruins a vacation faster than being stranded on the side of the road before you even get there. At Camper/Trailer Parts and Repair we strongly believe doing something when it needs to be done, and doing it right the first time, is the only way to do anything. And that's what we do for you. Spend a little now or a lot later.
SEAL IT UP TIGHT
We carry all the products you need to seal up your roof, moldings, windows, compartments and more. We have roof lap caulk, silicone, putty tape, sealant tape, roof cleaner, roof protectant, aluminum moldings, screws, vents and more. You can get what you need and do it youself or we can do it for you.
BRAKES AND BEARINGS
Brake and wheel bearing maintenance needs to be done regularly. If you have a boat trailer they should be done every fall. A snowmobile trailer or any other trailer that gets used on a snowy, salted road needs to be done every spring. Most travel trailers need to be done every couple of years, but should be done every year if used often or driven more than 6,000 miles a year.
Simply pumping grease into your hubs doesn't work and we do not recommend this. Over greasing this way can cause grease to leak out and ruin your brakes.
When we do your maintenance we remove all the hubs, remove all the bearings and throw away the old grease seals. Every bearing is individually cleaned and inspected, replaced if necessary, regreased and reinstalled. Grease seals are always replaced. The brakes are cleaned and inspected, repaired or replaced if necessary, lubricated and properly adjusted.

WINTERIZE / SUMMERIZE
We sell RV antifreeze, as well as all the supplies needed to properly winterize your trailer. We can also do it for you of course.
In the spring we can perform a Summerize as well. We flush out the water lines, water heater and fresh water holding tank with a sanitizing solution. Then to make sure your camping year starts off right we light all of your LP appliances. Sometimes they can get clogged up with bugs or debris during storage. We also test the refrigerator 110v electric heating element.
