Part 1 (Coach Storage)

  • Store your unit under a covered area if possible. If not, avoid parking under trees or in areas where grass and weeds will grow.
  • If you choose to buy a cover for the RV, be sure it is made of a breathable material. This will help in preventing mold and mildew.
  • Chock the wheels front and rear. Leave the parking brake off. If you’re storing a Pop Up angle the tongue downward to assist in snow and water run off.
  • Inflate the tires to the manufacturer’s recommended max cold pressure. Cover the tires to protect them from the harmful ultraviolet rays. Place something between the tires and the ground. Make sure whatever you use is larger than the actual foot print of the tire.
  • If you do not remove the tires for long-term storage periodically move the vehicle to prevent flat spots on the tires.
  • Close all of the window blinds to avoid sun exposure to the carpet, drapes and upholstery.
  • Wash the exterior of the unit and clean the interior thoroughly.
  • Make sure the awning fabric is clean and dry before storing.
