Summer is over and the fall season is upon us. That means that your campers and boats will very soon be stored away until spring time. At Specialty Marine we have a new storage facility. $39.95 a month covers any and all vehicles, with no acceleration of rates for larger units. Whether you own a motor home, travel trailer, boat, bus or off road vehicle, we have a space that’s right for you.
Specialty Marine and Storage opened its doors for business early this year, in order to serve our customers with their recreational vehicle storage needs. Sales and service of travel trailers for sale and motor homes for sale has always been Specialty RV’s mainstay but, with the recent addition of Mahindra Tractors and Crest Pontoon Boats to our profile, we realized the need to expand our operation to include a storage facility for recreational type vehicles.
So as you start planning to store your Toys, here are several tips that you should keep in mind that could prove invaluable.
RV preparation is important to storage.
If it is a trailer or a boat on a trailer, make sure you put it on blocks.
A lot can happen during the off-season that could cause a trailer to go cockeyed,potentially damaging the interior or exterior of the vehicle.
This protects the exterior from weather damage, but also helps to insulate and protect the interior from critters, bugs, and any other damage that could otherwise befall it.
You don’t want to come back from your winter break away from camping only to find your camper is odorous on the inside. Clean it before you stow it away to prevent a rude awakening months later.
Make sure you remove the spark plugs and spray them down with fogging oil when you store it. Replace the spark plugs, but don’t attach the wires. If your boat is staying on the water, remove the battery entirely. Fill up the gas tank and add a little stabilizer for the long park. If you use antifreeze, make sure it’s replaced.
When the time comes to break out the RV or boat again, all of these things will need to be reversed, of course. Make a checklist of what you will need to do before your RV is roadworthy or your boat is seaworthy again. You will find it much less stressful when you come back to find your RV or boat in working condition, even after four or five months out of commission.
