Question Food

Hi guys,

I am new here and new to RVing so I might be posting in the wrong spot, please let me know if I am.

My question is, we live in AZ and I would like to put can goods and canned goods under the RV in the storage area. How safe will there be under there? Is it a good idea? Thoughts? Advise?

Thanks!!

It's prolly no different than the conditions the canned goods were shipped in while in the semi-tractor trailer on their way to the grocery store. Go for it! \ken

I do my own canning of veggies, cucumbers, pickles sect. I plan on putting them in a plastic tub in the basement. As long as the bin does not shift around too much you will be good to go.

Thank you Bumps that is what my hubby said.

Thank you bobandshaz I hope so. Maybe if I wrap something around each jar that might help.

Thank you DieselTech39.

Bubble wrap or a soft packing materials would be a good buffer

Or an egg crate type of box (Jars are shipped in a giant egg crate box)

In some cases it can get very hot in basement storage.. You might drop a LaCross remote Thermometer or equivalent in the compartment so you can read the temps Get one with two or more transmitters (most of them can take 2-4 transmitters) put one in the food storage area.. One in the compartment where the propane tank hides or in some other protected from the sun area that is open to the outdoors.
