Storing your RV

As a full-time RV'er, I hadn't really thought much about storing my 40' Newmar Dutchstar, but it is starting to look like I am going to have to do that for a while to take care of my aging father. To that end, I starting researching the best ways to store an RV with a particular eye on preventing humidity from destroying it.

What I found is probably not a big surprise to many on this forum, everybody has 'the best' solution. Some I thought made great sense and some were just wacky. So I did a couple of weeks of research and put together an article on my blog about properly storing an RV for an extended period of time.

I worked hard to find the most effective solutions to several problems that crop up when storing your RV but I am just one set of eyes. I'd like to ask for your help and get some feedback from anybody that would like to help make the article better.

If you have the time I'd be grateful if you would review the article and leave feedback that I can incorporate into it..with appropriate attribution of course.

Have a great holiday season!

The tips are good, the font sucks. Difficult to read on an IPad. Enjoyed the B&W photography too. If digital ever matches film and darkroom for tone and contrast, I will finally put my film gear on a dusty shelf.

✌️brother, and enjoy any of the 60+ holidays in December you care to celebrate!

Well done!
Just a couple of notes:
Regarding trickle chargers, the batteryminder brand of trickle chargers have full time pulse desulfation technology built in. I have one for my chassis batteries and another for my house batteries which do a good job. They're obviously smart chargers that check SOC every 12 hours and adjust charge rate accordingly.

Also, I would suggest a caveat to read the manufacturer's instructions anywhere you mention disconnecting the negative terminal because as an example, my Magnum inverter has a data bus that feeds the control panel and if the inverter negative is disconnected before the inverter positive the inverter searches for ground along the data bus and will fry the control panel and anything else connected to that bus. In this case, not adhering to the correct order of cable disconnection can be an expensive mistake.

I like your logo just as it is with the peace sign.
