RV Storage

Don’t leave your RV, travel trailer, or camper in your driveway over the winter. What you need is a convenient, affordable, and secure place to store your “home away from home” until you’re ready to use it again.

The city or your HOA may have rules against leaving oversized vehicles in the driveway or on the street. And, there is the extreme inconvenience of having to maneuver around it to park your cars in the garage. The Storage Place has years of experience storing recreational vehicles ranging from travel trailers and truck campers to Class A, B, and C motorhomes.

To get your RV ready for storage, we offer the following tips.

Drain All Tanks

  • Drain the fresh water holding tanks as well as the black and grey holding tanks.

Drain the Water Heater

  • Remove the drain plug and open the pressure relief valve.  Caution:  Do not drain when the water is hot!

Remove Food and Supplies

  • This seems an obvious, but even that forgotten bag of unopened chips can attract bugs. bugs.In any case, food left for long periods of time will become moldy and/or inedible.

Disconnect the Refrigerator and Leave the Door Open

  • Leaving the refrigerator door open prevents stale air and condensation that can ultimately cause mold.

Use RV-Approved Non-Toxic Antifreeze

  • To keep your pipes from freezing during the frigid weather use RV-approved, non-toxic antifreeze so that you don’t poison your water.

Pressurize Your System

  • Start with the faucet closest to the water pump and slowly open the hot and then the cold valves until the antifreeze appears.

Cover external vents to Prevent Pests

  • Don’t let your RV become a “home away from home” for pests during extended storage.

Check Roof Condition

  • Repair damage to your roof.

Coat Your RV with Wax

  • Give it a coat of wax prior to storage for an added layer of protection.
