Outdoor Pennsylvania winter storage

Staying this summer in our MH around Pittsburg. Debating whether to take the MH back to Texas for the winter (I'm staying in Pittsburg for another 12 months) or storing it at my present campground with an electric hookup. Will 2' of snow on the roof damage it? Not interested in the underground storage or really expensive indoor storage. What should I be concerned about?

Freezing. Definitely needs winterized in PA. You don't indicate where in TX, if freezing is a problem there or not, or if you have to pay for storage in TX. Snow on the roof not a problem. I would drive it to TX and avoid the hassles.

Have your MH winterized and you will have no problem. Keeping the batteries charged is important. If you can't get elec. to the rig then most of us take them out and store them. As far as snow, I've had afoot of snow on my roof and no problems.

Good luck with your search of choices.

Happy Trails!!

A lot of RVs stay parked all winter in western PA. Winterize water system. Either plug in or disconnect batteries. Treat diesel fuel to prevent algae growth. In a perfect world, exercise genny monthly.

in addition to treating fuel for algae growth make sure you have an anti gelling additive in the fuel.

Thanks for the responses. I would not have thought of fuel additives. Think I will try Pennsylvania storage this winter. I will winterized and be plugged in to shore power

There is a place about 20-25 minutes north of Pittsburgh in Schenley,Pa. that has indoor storage for $100.00 a month for a 36 ft. rv. Really a nice facility...concrete floors.....NO MICE...lol. I have been going there for 3 years. I just hate the thought of snow and ice thawing and freezing on the roof of my motorhome.
