For the majority of the items, it is “How does it look?” This concept comes with experience of looking at roofs and the various pieces parts, take a look below, what do you think?
Some of the most important things on the roof that is evaluated VERY CAREFULLY and in DETAIL is sealant, looking for cracks, hold, loose, dried out, etc.
On Motorhomes, we also look at the front windshield and make sure wiper blades work.
Next time we will talk about the sidewalls, the paint, decals, etc.
