RV Types We Inspect
A Closer Look RV Inspections & Services inspects any type of RV
The most frequently inspected RVs include:
RV Industry Tools
A Closer Look RV knows that the best way to inspect your RV requires the usage of some industry tools. Therefore, they have the following in their toolkits:
Gas Leak Detector
Checking for gas leaks is one of the most vital parts of inspecting an RV. We use a manometer to ensure there are no leaks present.
360 Degree Camera
We want you to see everything around you, the 360-degree camera we use is a great tool for this! It is also a great option for buyers who may be buying their RV from out of state and didn’t get an opportunity to see it firsthand.
The Snake/Scope camera allows us to see in areas that are not otherwise easily accessible to view! This can help us troubleshoot or diagnose any potential problem areas.
Hot Skin Tester
This determines if there are any shorts within the circuit identifying life safety conditions.
We can measure resistance, amperage, and voltage with multimeter on the various electrical components throughout the RV.
We can measure moisture within the walls and ceiling structure to identify possible water intrusion which may result in black mold and other potential damage to your RV.
Ernie and Sandy’s Background
In the Air Force, Ernie worked in aircraft maintenance, so he is very hands-on and mechanically inclined. Throughout his Air Force career, he developed a great work ethic and integrity, which he has carried throughout his life.
Ernie and his wife, Sandy, started RVing three years ago and love the RV lifestyle. They have met a lot of great people and thought it would be great to help others with the purchase of their RVs. While traveling they take the opportunity to get hands-on experience on learning about different types of RVs and whenever they get the chance, they enjoy checking out other RV exteriors and interiors.
The Perron’s had a great experience with their own inspector and decided to open an RV inspection company because with the knowledge they received they wanted to help other RVers know what they are purchasing.
Echo is a 2 year old Red Merle Minnie Australian Sheperd who loves to travel with his owners making new friends across the country and flirting with everyone he meets with his beautiful blue eyes.
Spare Time with the Perrons
When they are not helping their fellow RVers, they love to hike, bike, kayak, spend time with their family and friends and visit their 12 grandchildren, and 1 great-grandchild who are scattered across the country. Their favorite campgrounds are COE’s (Army Corp of Engineering) locations and Harvest Host locations. They also love spending time with their fur baby, Echo.
