Furniture storage,when full time RVing


What could I tuck down into or under a leather
covered ottoman to discourage rats from eating
into it while in storage. We will eventualy take
the furniture out.

Should I leave some rat poison on the floor of
the storage unit as well? Never worked in my

Thanks in advance, guys and gals.

PS: If I had super deep pockets I would trade
into a used 40 ft. MH with a slide, toss the
fruniture, and live in that!

wrap furniture in a dust cloth

put it up off the floor, like on a shelf, we purchsed some sturdy plastic shelves from a home center
then spread borax on the floor of the unit
and moth balls in the rafters and around the door jambs

put no boxes or "stuff" against any of the walls of the unit, leave a few inches 6" or so of air space if you can.
then HUGE ziplock bags work great for clothing, lines and dishes
we stored out half a house in a storage place for most of year this way

big thing is have someone open it up once in a while to sweep out any dead bugs and reapply the moth balls
