I am wondering about condensation or moisture inside. This is all new to me and I don’t want mold or musty smells. Also, we are frequently below zero in the long winter. Vents and windows open, closed, or doesn’t matter? Coach is always plugged into 50 amp in the shed. Thanks for any of your wisdom!
We keep ours stored inside a pole barn . We live in the Pacific N. W.
Plug in the MH for power and battery charging.
Drain freshwater tank and HW tank
Summer high average 80° / 70% RH . It can get over 100° but only for a few days .
Storage routine is open roof vents and side windows and cabinet doors and refrigerator doors.
Pour Toilet Seal Lube in toilet to keep seal pliable and from drying out.
Winter average 40° / 95% RH . It can get down below 0° but only for a few days .
Storage is to close roof vents and install foam insulating pillows , leave one window slightly open and turn on an electric oil filled radiator to hold interior temp 10° above ambient temperature. Open cabinet doors and refrigerator doors . Fill P-traps and toilet bowl with RV Anti-freeze . Also put a couple gallons of RV Anti- freeze in both holding tanks. This way , if power goes out , the MH is protected from freezing.
This protocol also worked in Chicago when we lived there and should work in most climates.
