Exciting Changes at Advanced RV Center: Bigger & Better Parts Store


Over the winter we've worked hard to bring our customers a larger parts store. We're at the tail end of the expansion and remodel and are getting excited to show you the finished product. We've added about 500sq ft. to the store and hope to have the store completely finished at the beginning of April. Later in the month we're going to host an open house and will send out invites to all our customers. Come by and check out the place (still open for business during the remodel).

Now is the time to start preparing for the summer months so you and your family can get the maximum usage out of your trailer or RV this year. Here are a few helpful tips that will prevent breakdowns and unexpected problems this summer!  Check Battery Health: If you have "wet" batteries (meaning they require water to operate) check water levels and top them off as needed.
