We are nearly new RVers and curious about summertime food storage of canned items in the motorhome. We're getting ready for a big trip in 4 weeks and it sure would be a big help if we could go ahead and start packing. We're already packing clothes, etc. but what about canned goods and other household/kitchen items? I've heard some say they keep their motorhomes stocked and ready to go except for the perishables. Is it safe to do that? It's 90 degrees outside right now and our rig is not in a climate control storage area so worry about heat spoiling the canned food, etc. any advice?

Hi Herkyflyer and welcome We always keep our canned food...soups, veggies, tuna, and our boxed food in MH for the summer. We take it out in fall. Also keep syrup, oil, vinegar, spices, etc. in too. So far we are living so nothing spoiled.

Several years ago I became concerned about the temperature and called some canning outfit. I was told store at 72 degrees or the taste quality can be affected. I was kind of surprised because I had never thought about it before, especially military food.

Here's a blurb on food storage. Art

The only things we "leave" in the TT are non-perishables: coffee, flour, sugar, etc. Takes a little more time to stock up, but well worth it.

Gee, I don't know! Cans have been around a lot longer than A/C, so what did we do back then in summer months?

We always have canned goods in the RV and hardly ever use the air! Never had anything go bad even in 90 degree heat for prolonged periods. Of course, nothing ever stays there for more than two or three months.

I don't consider flour, sugar and coffee non-perishable. In hot summer weather I remove all food items unless we have the motorhome plugged in and the AC on. We set the AC at about 78 but at least food won't spoil. If it's 90 outside, it's a lot hotter inside.
