Outdoor storage in Vegas

We're getting closer to pulling the trigger on purchasing a motorhome. Looking at ordering a Lazy Daze! My concern is that we live in Las Vegas and the unit will have to be stored outside when not in use. I'd like to get some feedback on what desert heat and sun (and other weather) related issues we might encounter and any advice you might have on mitigating those issues. Thanks in advance!

At a minimum find covered storage and if possible enclosed.

Agree. The heat will fry your leather, dry out the wood, damage electronics and no telling what else. If you can't find covered storage, place 10 or so gallon jugs (with the tops cut off) filled with water through out the MH. This will help with the hot/dry problem.

What a great idea, using the water jugs! I use a special, encased wet sponge in the sound hole of my guitar for the same reason.

it's not unseen that the outdoor temp reaches 120 degrees in the summer days there, i can imagine it could be 130-150 deg inside at the peak. i would be very concerned about leaving it under the sun. do whatever you can to protect it, maybe with a fiber rv cover, as i have seen somebody using it at an rv park.
