What do you leave in coach when storing it?

I live in the southwest (just outside of San Diego....so REALLY SOUTH AND REALLY WEST). Our weather is not too hot, not too cold. DW and I have an ongoing discussion on what needs to be emptied out when we store the coach. Do you leave hair spray, or any other aerosol, in a coach when placing it in storage?

Perishables come out, everything else stays. Our temps here run 32-50 degrees in winter. Never had an issue.

How long are you storing it for? We don't remove anything except that which need refrigeration when we part it for short term stays (measured in days/a few weeks). We clear out anything that's perishable and/or liquid when we park it for the winter (we're in Michigan so freezing is a potential issue). Everything else stays right where it is in the coach.

Perishables will be removed. The coach will be stored no more than two months at a time. Hopefully, now that we retired, we will be taking short trips each month and one or more 2-3 month trips each year.

Depends on where you live . We remove all refrigerator items. All pantry items.
All medicine cabinet items . Leave some basic seasonal clothes, laundry soap and other items that if they freeze will not be harmed . As we live in an area that gets cold weather and perhaps the occasional mouse we tend to not leave anything behind , It's easier to just pack it all and not have to sort and pick . You know , take this , not that , Just take it all . It also helps you to keep an eye on what is important to take .

We also remove everything from the MH. The only thing left in it when we lock the door is a bucket of DampRid.

Another one from SoCal and we leave everything in there except food. We do leave some canned goods in there but nothing that can attract creatures. It is our second home and needs to have all the amenities of one.

We take out all food and anything else that's perishable. Only problem I've had is I left a can of "Off" insect repellent in the bathroom medicine cabinet. In hot weather, the can leaked and ruined the finish on the cabinet wood. I also had a can of the same repellent in the console of my truck. The can leaked and made a mess inside the console (2003 Ford Super Duty). Took me forever to clean that sticky $h!^ out!

Bummer about the "Off".

I am a "ready 30" kind of guy as one of the posters mentioned. I guess that I would have to amend my thinking (this means that DW won this round &#128574. As we get more trips under our belt, our list of things to leave in the coach hopefully will grow (and maybe be seasonally adjusted for those 100+ *F days.

My thanks to all respondents for sharing their experiences.
