Summer RV Storage Arizona

We are storing our RV in southern Arizona for the summer while we head home to Canada for the summer. Looking for advice on how to prepare the motorhome for storage. We will of course empty the holding tanks, cover the tires, clean everything, leave things to deal with pests. Anything else?

A good coat of tanning lotion? Just kidding. Welcome to Glad you joined us and hope you enjoy the site. Sounds like you have things pretty well covered. Seems like some people do something to the interior bowl of the toilet. You may want to do a search on that. Might have something to do with not letting the seals dry out. They also may do something with the sink and shower traps as the water will probably dry out and may inhibit some nasty backup smell even though you drain the tanks. Anyway have a safe trip home and hope you had a good season while in AZ.

Hi brideb, welcome to the forum. Is this dry storage? If so, turn off/disconnect your batteries.
