What to Know About RV Storage, Dothan, Alabama

When you own an RV and need to find quality storage for the off season, there are a few things to know to ensure your vehicle is protected and safe while not in use. Before you settle on a location for RV storage, proper preparation and a secure facility are where to start. Here are a few things to keep in mind this year.

What to Know About RV Storage

Winterize Components

Before storing your RV for the season, it is important to winterize it to keep components safeguarded. Take out the battery, beginning with the negative terminal. Keep it in safe storage, but perform monthly checks to ensure it is fully charged and not frozen. Change the oil and top off anti-freeze in the radiator. Add fuel stabilizer after filling the tank and run the engine for a few minutes. Start the engine and generator every couple of months, letting them run idle for an hour or two to lubricate parts.

Interior Protection

RV storageFirst, remove anything perishable and defrost the refrigerator. Keep all drawers, cabinets, and the fridge open after cleaning to stop odors from developing. Close all windows—if there are any cracks or holes, repair them before placing the RV in storage. Close and cover vents to prevent insects, dust, and grime from getting in.

Security

Choose a RV storage facility with surveillance cameras so you know your vehicle is safe while in storage. RVs contain valuable components and gear that you want safeguarded when not in use. The type of storage company you select is just as critical as how you prepare your vehicle for storage.
