I have a spray can of rubber seal protectant which I use on all seals including toilet keeps them soft and pliable. No problems yet.

If you can afford covered storage, not just a cover, DO IT.
RV covers don't lsst very long in South Florida. Do both of you can.

Cover the fridge vent on the exterior with saran wrap, etc.
I live in South Florida and I use Damp Rid inside several places in the cabin and I do worry about small animals. They love the heat and will chew on your wires. I keep d-Con in a couple of places inside the RV frame but outside the cabin. One next to the engine and one near the rear of the camper.

We live in Orlando and keep our coach in the drive, plugged in and the AC on year round. Probably not feasible in your case, but it sure is nice to not have to worry about it. I can tell you to make sure you don't have any limbs or vines touching it at any point and to protect the cords if you do have it plugged in. Ants WILL get inside regardless if there is path for them. Also, be very careful when you get into the battery compartment at the end of the summer as the fire ants just love to nest in the areas around the warm batteries (assuming they have a trickle charge to keep them up). The UV here will kill you worse than the heat, but I would still heed what some of the others have said about keeping air flowing through the coach if at all possible. IMHO, fresh flowing humid air is much better than hot stagnant humid air.

Forgot to mention another option you may be interested in. I have no idea what the cost is, but there is a company that just relocated to Daytona Beach called Classic Coach Works. They do coach renovation, etc. Very nice folks. Their new facility has inside RV storage. Might check with them and see. Definitely better than leaving it out in the weather and there's always someone there to watch things for you.

Spray bug killer around the tires and anything else that contacts the ground.

I live in Florida year round. I put a large damp rid inside. Remove all food items. Before I park my trailer I spray Termador on the ground my trailer will be parked on. Never ever have a bug that way. I park on wood planks. Cover the wheels and put a cover on the trailer. Never have any issues. Mine sits for several months at a time. No problems with anything.

I've seen a couple comments in this thread about DeHumidifiers and wonder if anyone can recommend a good one? The smaller the better.
