Preventative Maintenance

For over 50 Years, PEI Home & RV Centre has been Family Owned and Operated. Our Service Department is equipped to make repairs on most major RV brands.

Our Service Centre is open year-round to offer you the convenience of having your RV serviced, repaired, or maintained on your schedule. We also offer Mobile Repair Service* during camping season to look after Islanders and visitors who come to our beautiful Island to camp. Whether you have a leak, need a slide-out repaired, or a hitch installed our friendly and trained Service Technicians are the team for you.

As an RV owner, one of the most important things you can do to ensure your RV stays in top condition year after year is keeping up with routine maintenance. Many RV owners do not have the proper facilities, tools, or knowledge base to perform their own RV maintenance, and many other RV Owners just prefer to enjoy their RV and not have to remember or worry about routine maintenance requirements.

If you fall into either of these categories, PEI Home & RV Centre is here to take care of all your maintenance needs with a variety of RV Maintenance Service packages tailored just for you, so you can do what’s important and enjoy your RV lifestyle.

With the proper maintenance and care, your RV can last a long time. Our RV service packages will provide you with all the essential maintenance you need to keep your RV in great shape.

Keep up with our recommended travel trailer maintenance schedule, and you can rest assured you’ll be enjoying years of camping fun in your RV!
