Stor’em Self Storage provides more than a storage unit for storing your personal belongings. We also provide a place to park your RV or camper. When it’s time to pack up your vehicle for the season, you’ll need somewhere to park it. Whether you keep it at home or a Rancho Cucamonga, CA, we have a few tips to keep it protected until the spring.
4 Tips for RV and Camper Storage
Be careful when parking at home.
If you’re parking your RV or camper at home, watch where you keep it. Avoid parking it under the trees as a branch could fall and damage the roof or the windshield. Try to park it on the driveway or another hard surface. Parking it on a grassy area will reveal a dead patch in the spring.
Protect the interior before storage.
Keep the sun out of the interior while your camper sits in storage through fall and winter. Pull down and close the blinds to keep the sun’s rays from damaging the seats, dash, and other surfaces. Cover and close all the vents to keep out pest insects and rodents.
Prep your RV or camper for long-term parking.
You’ll want to take the necessary steps to prep your RV or camper for a long fall and winter storage. Doing so will make sure it’s ready to go in the springtime. One of the most important things to do is remove all the perishable food items from the drawers, cabinets, and fridge. Placing an opened box of baking soda in the interior will prevent odors during storage. Some other important steps to take include:
- Removing and storing the battery
- Adding a fuel stabilizer to the tank
- Changing the oil
Park it at an RV storage facility.
For the most peace of mind, park your RV or camper at Stor’em Self Storage. With our perimeter fencing, attentive staff, and security gates, our units give you optimal peace of mind.
