Take Precautions to Prepare Your Vehicle for Storage
RV Storage Prep
When getting your RV ready for storage, start with a comprehensive cleaning of both the interior and exterior. This step is crucial in preventing mold, mildew, and pests, and it allows you to identify and address any maintenance issues. Engine and battery care are equally important. Change the oil, check fluid levels, and either disconnect the battery or connect it to a trickle charger to maintain its charge. Ensure tire maintenance is up to par but checking that they are inflated to the proper pressure. Consider using tire covers to protect them from weather-related wear. Lastly, leave the vents slightly open to allow for proper air circulation and prevent moisture buildup, ensuring a fresh environment inside your RV.
Boat Storage Prep
If you are storing a boat, you will also begin with a thorough cleaning of both the inside and outside, ensuring it is completely dry to prevent mildew. For engine care, flush it with fresh water, fill the gas tank, and add a fuel stabilizer to prevent corrosion. The battery should be removed and stored in a cool, dry place, or kept on a trickle charger. Finally, a high-quality cover is essential to protect your boat from dust, pests, and moisture, preserving its condition while in storage.
Car & Truck Storage Prep
Proper vehicle preparation before long-term storage involves a detailed cleaning and waxing of the exterior to protect the paint. It’s important to check and top off all vehicle fluids, and consider an oil change to ensure the vehicle remains in good condition. Disconnect the battery or use a trickle charger to maintain its charge. Finally, inflate the tires to the recommended pressure and use tire covers if available, to protect them from the weather.
Taking these few extra steps of preparation ensures your vehicle remains in prime condition during its stay at our storage facility. Talk to the experts at the Summit Self Storage location near you to see how we can best support your vehicle storage needs!
