Get More Space at Home

Recreational vehicles typically vary in size, ranging from eight to 40 feet in length, eight to 15 feet in height, and seven to ten feet in width.

Even when fitting in the garage or driveway, the RV could inconvenience the regular use of other vehicles. Opting for self-storage provides a practical solution, ensuring your RV is securely stored while freeing up valuable space in your garage or driveway for more frequent and essential use.

Change the oil and filter if needed, and protect the engine and exhaust from pests. Cover or protect windows to prevent sun damage, secure vent openings, and consider using moisture-absorbing products to control humidity. Set traps for rodents, disconnect electronics and maintain insurance coverage. Finally, store the RV on a stable surface and ensure it’s securely locked.

Winter Storage

Frequently Asked Questions

Proper preparation is crucial to protect your RV or boat from the harsh Fort McMurray winter elements, preventing damage such as freezing, corrosion, and other weather-related issues.

The timing for winterizing your RV or boat depends on several factors, including your location, the type of winterization procedures required, and when you anticipate the onset of freezing temperatures. As a general guideline, it’s recommended to start the winterization process several weeks before the first expected freeze in your area.

For most regions with cold winters, starting the winterization process in the early fall, typically in September or October, is advisable. This allows enough time to complete all necessary steps, such as draining water systems, adding antifreeze, and protecting the unit from winter elements.

It’s essential to consult the owner’s manual of your RV or boat for manufacturer-specific recommendations on winterization procedures and timelines. Additionally, local weather forecasts and climate patterns in your area should be considered when determining the appropriate time to start the winterization process.

By starting early, you ensure that your RV or boat is properly prepared for winter storage, minimizing the risk of damage from freezing temperatures and harsh weather conditions. If in doubt, you can always seek guidance from a professional service or your storage facility for personalized advice based on your specific circumstances.

Draining Water Systems: Begin by draining all water from the water lines, tanks, and water heater. This includes the fresh water tank, hot water tank, and all plumbing lines to prevent freezing and damage.

2. Adding Antifreeze: Use RV or marine antifreeze to protect plumbing components from freezing temperatures. Pour antifreeze into the water lines, toilet, and drains. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the correct type and quantity of antifreeze.

3. Treating Fuel System: Add a fuel stabilizer to the gas tank to prevent fuel deterioration during storage. Run the engine to ensure the stabilizer circulates through the entire fuel system.

4. Removing Batteries: Disconnect the batteries and remove them for winter storage. Store them in a cool, dry place or use a battery maintainer to keep them charged.

5. Protecting Engine and Drivetrain: Change the oil and oil filter in both the boat’s engine and the RV’s motor. Add antifreeze to the engine’s cooling system to prevent freezing.

6. Inspecting and Sealing: Inspect the exterior of your boat or RV for any gaps, cracks, or openings. Seal these areas with appropriate sealants or caulking to prevent drafts and water infiltration.

7. Covering and Protecting: Use a high-quality cover designed for boats or RVs to protect the exterior from snow, ice, and UV rays. Consider adding extra support to the cover to prevent sagging.

8. Elevating Tires: To prevent flat spots, consider elevating the boat or RV on jack stands or using tire pads. Ensure the tires are properly inflated.

9. Cleaning and Storing: Clean and thoroughly dry the interior of your boat or RV. Remove any perishable items and clean all surfaces. Store valuables in a safe, dry place.
