Storage Check List

  • Review owner’s manual for engine, LP gas, generator, water heater and sanitation system storage tips.
  • Remove all perishable food from cabinets.
  • Turn off refrigerator. Verify all power sources are off by checking 12 volt, 110 volt and LP gas.

  • 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.

  • Check tire pressure, and cover the tires, if they will be exposed to the sun.
  • Inspect roof, body, interior, soft molding and caulking.
  • Service locks with spray lubricant to prevent rust and freezing.

  • In motor homes, 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. In winter, all water tanks, lines and pumps should be drained and filled with non-toxic RV antifreeze to keep any remaining water from freezing the system. Never use automobile antifreeze of any kind in your water system!

4. Auto & Truck Storage

When you need to store your car or truck for any period of time it is important to make sure that you have a safe place to store it. We have limited indoor storage available but plenty of uncovered outdoor storage spots. Your vehicle will be safe and secure while in our care.

Storage Check List

There are a few things that we recommend to-do when preparing your car for long term storage:

  • Top off the fluid levels. A full reservoir will leave no space for condensation to occur.
  • Change the oil and filter. Old oil will become acidic and eat away the inside of your engine. Fresh oil takes longer to break down.
  • Grease steering and suspension. A full grease service will keep the seals and rubber bushings from drying out.
  • Top off the fuel and add a fuel stabilizer. This will keep the gas from breaking down and evaporating.
  • Older vehicles disconnect the battery. Newer vehicles though need to leave the battery connected or else the computer will need to be reprogrammed.
  • Never engage the parking brake. Brake pads can rust to the rotor or the drum and cause the wheel to seize. Use wheel chocks instead.
  • Use a vehicle cover or a tarp and secure it around the body to ensure that is does not fly off in a wind storm.

5. Outdoor Boat Storage

From Midland RV & Boat Storage Tacoma

Keeping your boat in tip-top shape is easy when you use dry storage options. Outdoor boat storage keeps it out of the water and in a safe and secure location. You won’t have to worry about theft or damages that usually occur at a slip. Our  outdoor boat and trailer storage solutions are for any size boat, jet-ski or PWC you own.

 

Storage Check List:

The following steps can be taken to protect your boat while in storage. Additionally, specific procedures recommended by the boat manufacturer should be closely considered.

  • Prepare your engine in accordance with the owner’s manual. In winter, this will normally include draining and flushing the cooling system; draining and refilling the crankcase; applying oil to inside of each cylinder through the spark plug holes; and other preservative actions.
  • Thoroughly clean the hull, decks, cockpit, bilge, all compartments, lockers and the exterior of engine, and coat with an appropriate wax or preservative.
  • Drain fuel lines, pumps, carburetor and tanks or fill completely, and add fuel stabilizer.
  • Leave all floorboards up, doors ajar, ports and skylights open, hatches partly open, drawers and lockers open.
  • Carefully fit a well-made cover, provided with ventilation ports. If boat is to be stored outdoors, make sure there are no low spots in the cover that will hold rainwater.
  • Place a cover over engine. Do not leave the engine exposed to the sun or rain.
  • Don’t forget the trailer. Check tire pressure, and cover tires, if they will be exposed to the sun. Check and pack wheel hubs, if necessary, and lubricate jack.
  • Finally, note dates of registration, tags, certificates and insurance, etc., and plan for renewal, if they expire during your storage term.
