RV Storage

Properly preparing your RV for storage during periods of non-usage will prevent problems from arising. It will also make it easier to get started again for the following camping trip or season. To prevent costly freeze-ups, winterize the plumbing system when it will not be in use for an extended period of time, especially if it is stored in colder climates.

Prior to Storage
  • Store your RV indoors, under a roof or with a “breathable” cover for use during storage.
  • To prevent weather checking and other UV damage, cover tires exposed to sunlight.
  • Thoroughly wash the interior and exterior of your RV.
  • Do not use the stabilizing jacks during storage.
  • Check the roof and other surfaces to ensure there is no damage and potential leakage that might otherwise go unnoticed.
  • Inspect and seal off any area that offers an entry point for rodents, birds or insects. Cover all external outlets (i.e. furnace, vents, etc.). Damage from birds, rodents, insects, etc., is not covered under the “Towable Limited Warranty” applicable to your RV.
  • Close all windows and roof vents.
  • Cover the roof air conditioner (if so equipped).
  • Close the propane cylinder valve(s). We recommend using a propane cylinder cover, and to make sure the propane regulator is covered. If is equipped with a gas/electric DSI range, light a range gas burner to consume any gas remaining in the lines. Once the flame extinguishes itself, turn the burner valve OFF.
  • Drain all water lines. Make sure the RV is winterized
  • Drain and flush all holding tanks (fresh water, gray water, black water and/or hot water tanks).
  • Adding fuel stabilizer to the generator (if so equipped) will aid in preventing condensation and fuel varnishing.
  • Disconnect 120-volt AC power to the RV.
  • Remove all batteries from the RV and store in a place where they will not freeze. A battery that has been frozen will never hold a proper charge.
  • Turn all cushions on edge to prevent the moisture/mildew buildup during storage.
  • Turn off 12-volt DC/120-volt AC/propane to the refrigerator; defrost and clean. Block the doors open so air can circulate and prevent mildew, or use crumpled newspaper or open boxes of baking soda in the refrigerator to eliminate odors during storage.
  • Remove all perishables from the cabinets. Leave the cabinets and doors ajar to allow air circulation and prevent mildew and musty odors.
  • Lubricate locks and hinges on exterior doors.
During Storage Period

Remove snow from the top of your RV to prevent damage to the unit’s structure.

Excessive snow, 8” or more, or ice, 2” or more, places excessive weight on the RV roof. Remove excessive snow or ice as needed. Care MUST be exercised to not damage the roof material when removing snow & ice. Excessive weight can damage the roof, seals, etc. Water leaks and poor fit or operation are the results of this damage.
