Cold RV Storage
Storing an RV in the cold of winter has additional requirements. Include these in your storage process:
- If you have a class A or C, add a fuel stabilizer to your gas tank.
- Disconnect your batteries as they may freeze
- Drain and flush all your tanks
- Open all faucets and remove drain plugs
Regular RV Cleaning
Before you store your RV, you will want to go through a thorough RV cleaning process. Vacuum the interior, clean out the refrigerator and cupboards, dust everywhere and clean your linens. Clean your A/C filters and RV vents. Clean the spot you plan to park your RV in to keep away pests. Leaving behind dust and dirt and wear on your RV’s interior and exterior. Remove all this and your RV will not only be more inviting when you open it up, it will have less build-up, odors, and a draw for insects.
Don’t forget when you winterize your RV, you will need to de-winterize in the spring!
These storage steps may take you a full day, maybe two depending on the size of your rig. It may take a little extra work instead of just dropping off your RV for the season and getting back to the daily grind. But taking care of these important RV details will make sure your RV is there for you, in great condition, when you are ready to roll down the road again.
