So, i just recently found a place just minutes from my house at a nice price. It is covered overhead and on 3 of the four sides... just the front where i back in is exposed (but still covered overhead).
So... i'm looking for some tips on how i should store it...
1. Should i pull the tires up on boards (currently it's dirt/gravel)? Would my Lynx legos work?
2. Should i lower the stabilizer jacks?
3. Should i leave the front and back roof vents cracked open for air circulation?
4. Should i pull the battery?
5. I bought some Fresh Cab to keep the mice out... any other suggestions?
Anything else you all could suggest would be great appreciated.
I am no expert but this is what I was told by the guys in our camping club; collectively they have 200 + years of experience with many different kinds of rvs.
What the tires are parked on is not as important as tire pressure. Make sure the tires are at the correct pressure after you park for the winter.
Leave the stabilizers up. If a tire(s) should go flat you will not want the weight of the camper on the jacks.
If you have vent covers leave the vents open. If not, open the vents a little but not all the way. Although yours will be covered I would hate to make it easier for pests to get in.
Disconnect the positive side of the battery, better yet, take it home and put it on a trickle charger.
Remove all food, shut off the propane and pray for spring. Good luck.
