Keeping Toiletries in the RV

Hi Folks. This may sound like a silly question, but I just went shopping for trailer toiletries so here goes.

I'm thinking the beauty of moving to a travel trailer from a popup is that I can keep more things in the trailer between trips. The idea is that I want to only have to pack clothes and food and go. I will take toiletries out of the trailer over the winter, but will the heat hurt them when the trailer is not in use and therefore no a/c running? I'm thinking shampoos, deoderant or toothpaste. For example, will stick deoderant melt if left in the rv? I am in Southwestern Ontario where summer temps can reach mid to high 90'sF/mid 30'sC. What do other folks do?

Don't blame you. We have camped when it was 16 degrees over night.

Except for food/drink/meds, we keep our Lexi fully stocked. Clothes, toiletries, ect all stay in the rig, year round. Only items wife has to bring is a bit of makeup.
Never had any problems with soaps, arm pit juice, shaving stuff, ect, going bad.

Thanks Grumpy. I won't worry about it then; just load up the rig and then it's ready to go whenever we are

We only take out food items. Had critters once in the RV. No food no critters since!

Leave it loaded, we even started to leave cloths stored. The only thing that leaves to get is food and beverages.
If you leave the trailer on 120v to keep refer cold, you can store the items that might melt in the refer.

Pretty much the only item I wouldn't leave inside in the summer heat is 'anywhere strike matches', if they are still around.
