I'm looking for advice on my "new to me" kustom koach KC280.
The unit is was sold in 2004 and has about 4000 miles on it. The tanks have never had water in them and the Fridge still has the cardboard inside.
Is there any maintenance I should be doing service wise before I take it out for my first trip?
I would fill the fresh water tank and add some bleach to the water to sanatize the system. Run the bleach water into all the faucets on the RV and let it set overnight. THen you will need to flush the tank and system a couple of times to get the bleach smell out. I would also check the batteries for proper water level, have the rig lubricated at the bearings and grease fittings, be sure to check the lights and make sure everything runs properly before setting out. It's a lot easier to get repairs done at home than on the road. Good luck
