RV Storage Tips

RV storage
Parking your recreational vehicle, whatever the type, is not a set it and forget it proposition. If you want your camper or trailer ready to go the next time you are, there are some helpful RV storing tips that will prevent future problems:
  • Taking care of the tires
  • Assuring good ventilation
  • Prepping lines and tanks
  • Discouraging mold, rodents and bugs
Let’s start with the last one first. Remove all food, paper towels and anything else that might attract mice or other pests. Even if the food is unopened, it could attract an unwanted squatter. Leave closets, cupboards and the refrigerator propped open. This promotes ventilation and prevents mold from growing. Even in an empty fridge, residual moisture could give you a nasty, moldy surprise the next time you open it. Speaking of mold, be sure to use the vents to encourage appropriate air flow. If not, you could be stuck with moldy upholstery and more. Don’t leave water lines and storage tanks in your hauler vulnerable to freezing temperatures. Flush and drain them using your owner’s manual as a guide. If possible, save wear on your tires by putting your RV up on blocks. Having all the weight sit on one part of the tire for extended periods can cause damage. One of the key self storage tips is to move your vehicle occasionally if block storage isn’t an option. While you’re organizing your travel items, include your insurance coverage in the process. Find out if your investment is adequately protected.
While it may sound like a lot of work, prepping your vehicle for storage will get you on the road sooner on your next trip. Rely on your neighborhood Cardinal Self Storage location to make it easy!
