    Unless you’re a full-timer, you need to store your RV in the off-season.

    The following tips will help you prepare your coach for the months it sits idle, so that it will be in top shape when you are ready to take your next trip.

    1. Make sure to hang Clear The Air Odor Eliminator Bags throughout the RV and especially in the refrigerator. The bags work best if there is constant air flow through the RV so if you can, leave the windows at least cracked.
    2. Cancel liability, collision, medial and uninsured portions of the RV’s insurance policy if you are storing your RV on private property. Keep comprehensive coverage.
    3. Clean your RV battery and terminals with baking soda and water and make sure it is fully charged. A fully battery wont freeze until at about minus 80 degrees F but a discharged battery can freeze at only 30 degrees below. Store your battery in a dry, cool and ventilated area away from children and pets.
    4. Check to make sure critters are not building nests in or around your RV and engine. Before you start your RV engine or take your coach out of storage, check for nests and rodent damage to wires.
    5. Avoid parking your RV tires on the soil and park on thick plywood covered with plastic. Unprotected tires will deteriorate faster.

  • Keep Rodents Out Of Your RV

    While your RV is in storage this winter, you will want to keep unwanted animals out of your camper. We have some helpful tips from Ehow.com about deterring rodents from your RV.

    Remember, if you have the unfortunate experience of opening your RV to find rodents have made their home in your RV for the last few months, eliminate the odor with our collection of Odor Eliminator Products.

    Mice and other rodents frequently enter campers and cause damage to the interior. Mice enter through small holes in the exterior of the camper; these holes are usually located on the underside of the structure. Pest control precautions are especially necessary before storing your camper for the season.

    What you’ll need to deter rodents from your RV – A can of expandable foam, glue traps and ultrasonic rodent deterrent.

    • First you will want to search the exterior of the camper for any holes.
    • If you find any, point the can of expandable foam at the holes. Depress the can’s nozzle, and fill the holes with expandable foam. Repeat this process around all unwanted openings.
    • Next you will want to place mousetraps around the outside of the camper. This will hinder the mice from entering your camper.
    • You might want to also install an ultrasonic rodent-control-device. These devices emit sounds that deter mice from entering the camper.
    • Lastly, spread mothballs around the inside of the camper. Please note, if you place mothballs inside the camper AND place your Odor Eliminator Bags in the camper, the bags will work to eliminate the moth ball odor, thus less efficiently removing any dead rodent odors. Our suggestion is to take the moth balls out of your RV should you already have odors from rodents, then place the Odor Eliminator Bags in the camper.
