Readying Your RV for Storage

We are continuing or series on readying your RV for storage.  Our previous article discussed some tips to consider as you move your motorhome to RV storage. We covered some ways to prepare the inside of your RV, the fact that you should top off your gas tank, and also the importance of checking for leaks and covering holes.  Today, we will look at three more aspects to consider when placing your motorhome in a vehicle storage space. 

Prepare the Exterior

Preparing the exterior of your motorhome before you place it in vehicle storage will help preserve the appearance and integrity of the RV.  Check to make sure all slides are functioning properly and pull them in.  Spray down and/or wash the RV. Consider waxing to protect the exterior from rust and UV light.

Use Chock Blocks

It is not a good idea to set the parking brake for a long period of time as this can cause damage to the brake pads. When parking your motorhome in RV storage, you should always use chock blocks behind the tires to keep the vehicle from moving. 

Cover Tires

RV tires are very expensive. One of the best ways to protect them from UV damage is to purchase covers for them.  This is especially important if you plan to have your RV remain in vehicle storage for long periods of time.
