Arkansas Storage

Being a newbie this is the first winter we are experiencing and we live in No. Minnesota, where it does get cool and sometime with snow! Our plan is to, next week, drive our 01 DSDP to Arkansas and store it (indoors) either at Huddleston Storage in Hot Springs or Beaver Storage in Avoca AR (we will pick it up in February for an 8 week tour of the SE US). Has anyone had experience with either of them. Also should we concern ourselves about critters, insects etc. that may be able to invade a closed storage area and enclosed underbelly RV?

While we are on the subject of storage: I will winterize it, but unsure on the best way of dealing with the batteries. I will have electric (110 V). Any recommendations, i.e. plug in and let it be, disconnect batteries and put remote charger on it ??? Any and all thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks for the great help and advice I have received through the forum(s). It is my hope that someday I will be able to provide advice as well as receive it!

In regards to the batteries, you can leave them connected to keep the interior electronic memories working. In regards to rodents and insects, there are many natural and commercial products you can use inside and outside. Ask the facility if they recommend you take precautions and what kind. They may have or not, a pest control company on contract to keep their storage facility problem free.
As for reviews between the two facilities you mentioned, if you can not fine them on line, ask customers you see on the premises, the BBB and Chamber of Commerce.
If the storage facility is not climate controlled, humidity and severe heat could pose a problem if you're not prepared for it.
