Agreed. Going on the 11th OH winter w/the coach this year & have never had a moisture issue.
I do take out all linens, but leave the mattress. I throw old sheets over it & over the furniture. Don't really know why I cover w/sheets, I just do. Probably a throw back from closing up a lakeside cabin for the season.
I remove all items from medicine cabinet, pantry & anything that has a small battery (remotes, clocks, detectors...etc.) & all aerosol cans (hairspray, bug spray...etc). I leave pots/pans/dishes/silverware/Tupperware..etc. Everything comes out of our outside storage bays...gives me a chance to give them a good cleaning.
All cabinet doors are left ajar as well as fridge doors. All blinds are pulled down.
I used to scatter dryer sheets around as I read the smell can deter critters. It did make the coach smell nice come Spring, but then I also read those same critters would just as soon shred them for bedding, so I stopped that years ago.
Ours stays plugged in year round.. If yours is in a storage yard w/o access to power, you should shut off power to both your engine & house batteries using your battery disconnect switches. Before you shut off your house batteries, shut your door so the steps come in, then flip the switch. When you open your door, you'll have to hop down to the ground, but at least your steps won't be out the entire storage season.
