Updating Your RV Insurance After Updating Your RV

This blog from Will Wright Agency Inc. covers why you need to update your coverage after adding solar panels, installing new appliances, or renovating your RV. Whether your RV gets parked full-time in Decatur, AL, or you often road trip, you need to keep your insurance current.

That does not just mean keeping your RV policy paid up; it also means that you cover the appropriate items you store in it and its overall condition. That’s why, when you renovate or add to your RV, you need to contact us at Will Wright Agency Inc. to update your policy.

Let’s say you update all of the appliances in your RV. That means you install a new refrigerator/freezer, air conditioner, heater, microwave, oven/stove, and added a Keurig coffee maker. Your insurance policy covered the RV as you purchased it. Your insurance agent based your coverage on those appliances. Your updates made your RV worth more money, but your policy covers the original value.

Adding solar panels to your RV’s roof so you can stop using propane and have electricity when not parked and plugged into an outlet also increases the value of your RV. A solar-powered recreational vehicle requires an insurance update.

Let’s say you purchased an older RV, then rehabbed it, much like a house flipper would. You bought insurance when you purchased the RV, but now its value went up. What you purchased for  $5,000 now has a value of $15,000. That means you need to update the insurance on it.
