Mevert Automotive & Tire Center
RV Service & Repair
When spring is here, that means getting your RV ready for the season’s trips. Mevert Automotive & Tire Center provides RV service and repair, including de-winterizing. If you haven’t used your RV all winter, you should have the engine, transmission, tires and other systems checked thoroughly before you make your first trip.

RV Repair at Mevert Automotive & Tire Center
Because RVs are heavy, they put more strain on everything, including the engine. Some common RV repairs we see at our Steeleville Il. shop include:
- Brake pads and rotors (or shoes and drums), calipers, master cylinders and wheel cylinders.
- Belts and hoses, including heater hoses.
- Timing belts and timing chains.
- Water pumps, radiators, radiator hoses and fans.
- Alternators and batteries.
- Cab air conditioning, including the compressor, high- and low-pressure lines, condenser, evaporator core, accumulator / drier, and orifice tube / expansion block.
- Tires, especially RVs with highway tires that drive on secondary roads.
- Leaks, including oil leaks, transmission leaks, power steering leaks, brake fluid leaks and coolant leaks.
- Suspension and steering components, including gearboxes, racks, tie rods, struts, springs and shocks.
RV House Services
We’ll check, and if necessary, replace the house batteries in your RV. If you don’t feel comfortable de-winterizing the plumbing system yourself, we’ll drain the antifreeze from the plumbing, flush it, and get it ready for you to add water. We cannot flush the gray and black water holding tanks, but we can get the rest of the plumbing. We recommend that you empty the tanks before you leave on your trip unless you know that you will be hooking up directly to a septic or sewer at your destination.
