Post Storage Configurations

Looking for some general info from you seasoned coach owners...I store my 2014 Ventana LE in a heated garage in Colorado so no need to winterize. However, a few questions about other things I should consider...

a. Should I store with levelers up or down?
b. Should I store with slides in or out?
c. Should I store with full tank of diesel and DEF (if not full, what level)?
d. Should I add some Stabil for diesel to the fuel tank?
e. Should I leave it plugged in to a residential 20amp outlet?
f. Should I flip the house battery disconnect button (if so, any need to leave it plugged in?)?
g. Should I close off the propane tank?

I will start the coach monthly and run the genset monthly with a load on it to keep all parts lubricated...

Is there anything else I should consider while it's not being used during the winter months?

Just looking for some seasoned advice/opinions!

Thanks to all!

Hi Jim & Judy
We also store in Colorado, indoor, heated.

a. we store levelers down
b.we store slides out
c.d. full fuel with fuel conditioner
e. we leave it plugged in to 50 amp
f. best if it's plugged in
g yes, close propane just to be safe

We also run Spring Fresh water system deodorizer and disinfectant thru the water system and flush the toilets every now and then to keep the seals from drying out.
We also put moth balls on the tops of all the tires. Not sure if it actually works but we never have had mice inside.

Good luck!!
