With summer not too far ahead, you’ve got a chance to jump into preparations before it’s time to get busy. If you’re looking at taking your RV out for a family vacation, you want to ensure that it’s tuned up, washed and ready to go. But when you take a look, there’s a scratch here, a chunk of paint missing there…
Do you really need to have a paint job repaired just for your summer vacation? No, your RV will still work just fine as long as you’ve taken mechanical care of it. But what happens when you don’t have your paint job tended?
Paint Protects Your Vehicle
The purpose of a paint job isn’t just to make your RV look like the best on the block. Paint is an exterior surface protection that keeps the metal frame from being worn by the elements. Rust is what happens when metal is exposed to oxygen and water, and it destroys the integrity of the metal. Weakened metal breaks under strain. The last thing you want is a panel breaking, costing you more in repairs!
Paint provides a layer of protection between the metal surfaces of your RV and the elements that would damage it. Even small nicks and scratches can let rust begin to develop. If it spreads beneath the rest of the painted surface, you won’t know until it’s too late.
