We have a 2018 Palomino Columbus 340RKC and are full timers. We are wintering in Winter Haven, Fl and will leave for 6 months on the road and wanted to ask anyones opinion on servicing our unit. We currently have no issues but were going to put our 5th wheel in shop for 2 days to have brakes checked, grease hubs and generally check over all systems for operations, leaks etc. Is there anything else that we should be doing? I appreciate all replies.

It sounds like you have covered most bases. Before your departure I think I would clean all the battery connections including tightening all connections on the converter to distribution panel these are areas that are easy forgotten good luck

Thanks SeaDog, I am always concerned about proper maintainence without over doing it with the costs of labor at most repair shops.
