    Preventative maintenance musts on a new Imagine

    We are picking up our 2021 2500RL this week and I was hoping to get some advice on preventative maintenance projects I should start right away. My intension is to strengthen or modify common wear items and areas. I hope to get these areas help before they need it.

    I have some things in mind, but I am sure there are things I have not thought of.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    The only “wear” item I can think of is the shackles. Is that on your list?

    I hear the wet kits are nice but I don’t plan on doing anything until I see it needs it

    I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for.
    Adjust brakes after 200 km.
    Inspect roof for cracked sealant monthly.
    Check window sealant monthly
    Bearing grease and pack every 5000km
    Tire pressure before every tow
    Tire inspection before every tow

    I am going to do the wet bolts in addition to the shackles and CRE 3000 as the original nylon bushings do not last very long. The wet bolts come with, I think, brass bushings.

    How would you know when the nylon bushings are worn out?
