Hello everyone. This is Jason with myRVresource.com It’s like Yellow Pages for RV services. So today I'm coming at you with another Weekly One Reason to Get an RV Inspection and we're inspecting a brand new Diesel Pusher. Today We Are talking about the RV Engine Compartment.
Let's go take a look at the manufacture date real quick. Right there you can see September 2022 is the manufacture date. So today we're going to go back the engine compartment just look at a couple things and might be something you would overlook.
Right there's our engine compartment all opened up and the first thing I see when I open this up is some grey tubing coming down. You can see that tubing has fallen and ripped the black insulation down. There is RV engine compartment damage and there's the screws that supposed to be on the wall right up against those hoses. When driving that screw could be rubbing on them hoses.If you don’t open your RV engine compartment and look for things like that you may not see it.
The second thing I saw when I open the RV engine compartment is that water is dripping from the condensation from the air conditioners. Typically that drips from some tubes all by itself not on the rear cap.Over time that could damage that fiberglass down there and make it a little weaker. Who knows what's going to happen with that but it's not how it's supposed to be. That's what we're here to do as Master Certified RV Inspectors is find things that aren't the way they're supposed to be.
One more issue from this RV engine compartment door. There's a third brake light installed on the top of the door. They cut it too long so now it is rubbing against the side wall. When you open and close, you can see if rubbing.
