If you are going to be placing your RV in storage for an extended period of time, you will want to take a moment to review the following suggestions to ensure that the RV is being stored properly.

Tending To The Tires

If you do not suspect that you will be removing the RV out of storage for several months, you need to consider what damage this can do to your RV tires. To prevent flat or rot spots on your RV tires, you will want to consider removing them. You can place the RV on heavy duty blocks to keep it from laying on the ground once the tires are removed. If this is not an option for you, you will want to make it a point to turn on the RV and move it around a little bit every month or so. The movement in the tires will prevent all of the RV weight from resting on one spot on the tires during the entire time it is in storage.

Preparing The Refrigerator And Freezer Unit

In order to prevent a musty smell from taking over the RV when you do open it back up when you are ready to use it again, you will want to thoroughly defrost the freezer, then clean and dry both the freezer and refrigerator units. Leave the doors to the units open and place a box of baking soda in each unit, as this will help to absorb any lingering smells.

Remove All Perishables From The RV

Even if you are only storing the RV for a few weeks or a couple of months and you believe the perishables that you have in there would survive, they can attract mice and rats. Therefore, it is best to simply make sure that you are removing all perishables from the RV until you are ready to start using it again.

Add A Breathable Cover

If your RV will be covered with a storage cover, you will want to make sure that it is made from a breathable material. This will help to reduce your chances of dealing with mold or mildew when it comes time to reopen the RV and prepare it for the road once again.

With just those few suggestions in mind, you should find that you are able to properly prepare your RV for storage so that it is road ready when you are ready to take it back out. Contact a business like Pioneer Storage LLC for more help.
