(NAPSI)—In order to truly enjoy the great outdoors, routine RV maintenance is essential. These three tasks will help extend the life of your RV, quiet squeaking parts and prevent breakdowns.

Both products are safe to use on metal, wood, vinyl and most plastics.To see what the other two maintenance tasks are, go here.
