RV State Inspections In Fayetteville, NC

All vehicles, including motor homes, are required to pass certain requirements states have in place. Depending on the type of RV you have and the state you live in, your vehicle will be subject to a different type of inspection. Many people also get state inspections performed before buying a motor home for their family. No matter what your needs are, we at D K Hardee Automotive in Cumberland County can perform state inspections on your RV. 

The main component of your motor home to focus on for a state inspection is the engine. Here are some things to look out for to make sure your RV's engine meets your state's standards:

  • Examine the engine from the outside and check for any oil, coolant, and/or brake fluid leaks. Check the hoses and belts for any signs of wear and tear, and make sure the drive belts are not loose.
  • The wiring of your engine should not have any smoke coming out of it or burnt insulation. If you notice any of these, it is a serious problem, and your RV should be brought in for repairs.
  • Check your motor home's air filter to see if there is anything clogging it. 

You'll also want to make sure your RV's weight, width, and height meet your state's standards. To find this information, you can go to your state's DMV website for specifications. Larger vehicles like motor homes have a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR), which includes the weight of the passengers, cargo, and the vehicle itself. 

Here are some other components of your motor home to pay special attention to before you go on a long trip with your RV:

  • Make sure all the exterior lights of your motor home are working properly, including brake lights, turn signals, and headlights. Also, be sure the covers on these lights don't have scratches. 
  • Check your RV for rust and note the areas that have rust. 
  • Make sure your motor home's power cords and outlets are in good working condition.
  • Inspect the drains of your gray and black water tanks.
  • Make sure your RV's tires are suitable for the vehicle's GVWR.
  • Test all the motor home's lights and make sure the pins in the lighting connector are not bent or damaged. 
  • Ensure the tire pressure monitoring system is working properly.
