We keep ours stored next to the house under a carport, and plugged in. blinds closed. The sun down here in Fla seams to eat things when they sit. It's funny I haven't decided if parked under trees with stuff dripping all over everything, or parked out in the sun when we are camping, which is worse cleaning off tree gunk or burning up.

We live in two condos. One in the USA and one in Mexico. Neither allow big rig parking. The DP sits all winter while we are away. Our requirements for storage, security, 24 hour access, full hookups, and having a place to weekend are solved by a leasing seasonal spot at a nearby, private, AANR campground. This arrangement allows us to do maintenance, stock up, wash or repair the MH at any time. There is no problem getting in or out when we go somewhere. Best of all the cost is not that much more than the local storage facilities charge.

What do you wear besides SPF-50 when washing and waxing the rig?

Wow!! So many VERY INTERESTING replies!!! Thank you, All!!!! So is it better to cover or uncover during a cold, Michigan winter?

We built a 15' X 44' X 18' high barn to store our Fleetwood Providence, so we'll be sad to leave it once our house sells. We've actually been VERY surprised that our home hasn't appealed to someone with an RV since we have two barns to store in. Hopefully, when we move south, we'll either be able to park next to our SMALL home or have enough acreage to build another barn. I'd much rather have a very small home and a BIG barn!

Thanks again for all the input! I had no idea that many had full hookup on their storage pads! We thought we were doing great with a 30amp plug!

We also have a garage for it. It keeps it clean and dry through our NW winters. When we move, we intend to have an eagle shelter or similar carport type structure if we don't have room for another garage.

We live on an acre in the woods in central Oregon and can have some pretty harsh winters. We park our motorhome next to our large garage, plugged in and heated.
We had a custom cover made for it, so when we put it away for "the season" its nicely and safely covered. Looks rather like a large dark beige package!
We spent a lot of money for the cover, had it made to our specs, its been a good investment . It has previously covered our 40 foot DP and now covers our new 2011 Allegro.
We keep a thermometer in the RV that we can check from our dining room to keep an eye on the temp when its dips to very cold temps here. We have also had to shovel snow off the roof twice this past winter.
So far its worked very well for us and always exciting day when we "uncover" and pray for good weather to hit the road.
