RV Storage Checklist

by Swanson ~ December 5th, 2008.

When storing your RV, there are many tasks to remember.   Here’s a checklist we put together to help you make sure your RV is ready for storage.

  • Review owner’s manual for engine, LP gas, generator, water heater and sanitation system storage information.
  • Remove all perishable food from cabinets.
  • Turn off refrigerator, verify all power sources are off by checking 12 v, 110v and LP gas.
  • Remove all food from the refrigerator, clean the inside and leave the door open to ventilate.
  • Clean rooftop air conditioner filters and cover the outside unit.
  • Clean the interior of the RV, pull shades and close blinds.
  • Turn off the propane cylinders and cover the regulator.
  • Cover or tape vents to the furnace and range hood for long-term storage.
  • Ensure all roof vents and windows are closed.  Prevent condensation by using chemical-type dehumidifiers.
  • Check tire pressures.
  • Inspect roof, body, interior, soft molding and caulking.
  • Service locks with spray lubricant to prevent rust and freezing.
  • Check all operating fluid levels under the hood and top off the gasoline tank.  Add a fuel stabilizer.
  • Empty and thoroughly rinse all holding tanks.
This is by no means a complete list.  Let us know what steps you take before storing your RV and we’ll add your tips to this list.
