Pre-trip Vehicle Inspection Tacoma Lakewood Puyallup
Tacoma is located along Puget Sound in Western Washington. Many people including a lot of seniors vacation in their RVs/Motorhomes and travel north to Canada, or east to Montana and Yellowstone, or head south to the canyons of Utah and the deserts of the southwest in Arizona, New Mexico, and Southern California. These are beautiful drives in cars and trucks and RVs, but multiple temperatures and driving conditions should be considered in order to put safety first on these trips. One way to have more peace of mind is to have a pre-trip inspection.
Ensuring that brakes, turn signals and lights are in good order and will continue to be for the duration of the trip.
Ensure that there are no leaks and that oil and vehicle fluids are filled.
Windshield wipers and their holders are in good condition.
Tires are appropriate for the season and have sufficient amount of tread (consider chains for winter travel).
Windshield has no cracks or leaks (fill-up the window washing fluid tank).
Seatbelts and mirrors are in good functioning order.
Having a pre-trip inspection can include (and is not limited to) the following elements:
Many of these items are mechanical issues which could be checked at any time and are important for all vehicles whether a road-trip is in the planning or not. However, they are even more important when it comes to being away from your usual route to home/work/errands/activities because of unfamiliar roads, possibly long stretches without any towns or service stations and maybe even no cellular signal.
Summer trips into Montana, Idaho, Utah, and the southwest may prompt early replacement of air filters. Planning of long trips over the mountains and the plains should include packing emergency equipment like battery jumper cables, and drinking water. With our reliance on cell phones, tablets, and laptops, solar battery changers might be a good idea. For trips to unfamiliar locations roadmaps are a must along with flashlights. Winter trips musts are emergency flares, blankets, and warm clothes.
A good vacation is a relaxing one and having a pre-inspection on the vehicle that will be making the road trip is a great way to get your vacation off a good start.
