Storage tips

Sooooo, I have been living out of my 308bhs for the past 9 months, as well as this being my first camper. Thankfully, moving out of the camper and into a house.
Any tips, tricks or advice on preping the camper for extended storage would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance

We took some false panels out of our 308 to make some more storage space. The 1st was under the bathroom sink the bottom area is actually larger than the top ( only because there is no p-trap n the lower one). The second is under the center of the dinette bench our thin cover wasn't fastened down so u can open that and store items u don't use everyday. 3rd was above the breaker box I took the false panel out and installed support strips and made a pretty good sized open shelf we can store like 8 - 12 pks of drinks in there. Will post some pics later of the finished product.

I think he's asking for tips about storing the *camper*, not storing items in the camper.

While they are good ideas for storing items , the way I read the OP was ideas for prepping the unit to be stored.
That said when I prep mine for the winter I do the following.
Drain and winterize the water system. Including pulling the water filter.
Can't remember the name of the product I use off the top of my head but I put in a tub that pulls humidity out of the trailer.
Pull all food that is not sealed against rodents and bugs. This is for short term storage too.
I'll give a lite lube to anything that may need it, slides, stabilizers, hinges.
Finally I hit the trailer with a six month long bug spray around all openings.
And that's about it.

Thank you! And yes, I was referring to storing the camper. But either way, thank you for the reply

So sorry. I misread the OP. I thought it said 'extra' storage not 'extended' storage.
