PREPPING YOUR RV FOR STORAGE

RVs are a huge investment, so taking precautions before storing them can help you make your investment last. At Big Item Storage, we take pride in the large RV storage units that we offer. Here are a few tips to make sure the process of storing your RV is a breeze.

As much as our storage units protect your RV, they cannot protect from uninvited visitors in the form of insects and vermin. But there are a few things you can do to ensure that these critters can’t invade your RV. Make sure to close all windows and vents and seal any gaps or holes with silicon or expanding foam. Remove all food from the RV, even if it’s non-perishable. Cleaning and vacuuming your RV from top to bottom ensures that no crumbs will be left behind to entice critters. You’ll also want to do a thorough clean of your fridge before shutting down for storage.

For longer storage times, you’ll want to disconnect your battery and propane supply. Even though appliances are turned off, they still use a low level of energy. Simply disconnect the wires to the power supply to provide a longer battery life. Removing the propane supply means you won’t have to worry about damage to the tank or a leak.
