Inspection Services

Safe Travels RV Services offer inspections for new or used RVs from small trailers to class A motor coaches and everything in between. Our inspection process involves detailed visual observations or instrument-based measurements of every aspect of your RV. This provides our customers with a complete report of the current condition of the vehicle. Inspections provide the client peace of mind and valuable information to support a difficult decision-making process. The inspection can identify potential issues before they become a major expense and provide awareness of any issues before purchase ensuring the best possible decision. All inspections include safety tests and examination of the electrical systems, propane system, safety devices (CO/smoke / LP detectors), fire extinguisher, emergency exit, and tires.
A sample inspection report is available for viewing upon request.

To ensure a thorough inspection, your RV will need to be connected to utilities (fresh water, electricity, and sewer), and parked on a stable and level surface during the inspection process. We also require the refrigerator to be on for at least 12 hours before inspection to obtain accurate temperature readings. Additionally, access to all doors, drawers, and storage compartments is needed. Only the purchaser of the inspection contract will receive the electronically delivered Adobe Acrobat (PDF) final report. We do not provide copies of any inspection report to any third party for any reason.

Inspection Plans

We offer a range of inspection services including Premier and Essential Inspections, Solar Inspections, and Fluid Analysis. Our detailed inspection points ensure your RV’s safety and efficiency on the road.

Solar: Energy-Efficient Solutions for Your RV

We are pleased to offer a full service solar program. Bill’s training from NVRTA on solar installation and previous experience in RV and marine solar designs ensures you will have the optimal solar system for you needs. The cost of these systems can be a challenge so it is imperative we understand your specific application.

We will start the process with an analysis which includes your solar desires and personal preferences (i.e. are you planning full-time boondocking or just need to keep the fridge cold while driving down the road, what climates do you plan to visit, do you plan to use AC overnight or just fans). We will assess your current power situation with an energy audit.

We will also evaluate any space or payload constraints and, of course, your budget. In the next step, we will create a design to fit your needs and budget. At this point, we are now ready to install the solar system at your location. Installations can take up to a week to complete and require access to electrical utilities so some coordination will be necessary.

We understand that some folks are very handy and are capable of performing the installation themselves. That is awesome and if that is you, we will provide a complete list of parts, schematics and consultation to support your installation. When complete, we can schedule an inspection of your installation, run a load test and commission your solar system. Please be aware that the client must use the parts and procedures of the provided design with only pre-approved changes in order to validate the warranty (parts per manufactures documents and 1 year on the design when used within the scope of the analysis).

Give us a call to discuss your solar system needs. We are looking forward to helping you upgrade your RV

Our RV Lifestyle

thermal image of Daisy

As avid outdoor enthusiasts, we have always cherished our time camping and exploring the great outdoors since childhood. Over the years, our appreciation for a more comfortable outdoor lifestyle has grown, and an RV perfectly meets our needs for comfort! Some might call it glamping – like camping but with plumbing and electricity – but we prefer to think of it as motorized camping. One of the best aspects of RV travel, in our opinion, is the convenience of having a bathroom on the road, eliminating the need to search for rest stops. All that’s needed is a safe parking spot!

We understand how frustrating it can be to encounter problems while traveling – water leaks, refrigerator issues, and more. That’s why our mission is to keep you safely on the road by sharing our knowledge about RV maintenance. When problems do arise, we’re here to assist in finding and fixing those issues that might hinder your RV experience.

Derek and Sarah

RV Model: 2015 Thor Ace

Background: While on a road trip, Derek and Sarah experienced a sudden failure of their RV’s air conditioning unit during a heatwave.

I reached out to get a used Rv inspected a little premature and was very patient with me during the process. Services were upfront and very detailed on what they provide (no hidden fees). The communication was very prompt even around a big time difference. I would recommend this company to anyone in the market for used Rv!

Safe Travels RV Services provided excellent service by troubleshooting a faulty neutral to ground issue I had with Renogy equipment on my marine application. Ultimately, we replaced the Renogy equipment with Victron products. Bill again assisted by programming my Victron inverter/charger to match my battery chemistry and power needs, plus provided many valuable recommendations for this installation, including going from lead acid AGM batteries to a Lithium Iron Phosphate house battery bank. Total game changer! We now have a solid, tested system ready for the next stage - solar and dc to dc charging. Thanks Bill and Safe Travels!
