How Do You Store A Trailer Outside For Winter?
Ensuring the proper storage of your trailer is crucial for preserving its lifespan and keeping it in optimal condition. Consider these effective storage guidelines from Elyria Storage Park for maintaining your trailers:
  • Thorough Cleaning is Key - Kick off with a comprehensive cleaning of your travel trailer. This involves scrubbing the refrigerator, clearing and sanitizing cabinets, and removing all food and perishable items. Leaving food behind may attract rodents or other unwanted pests.
  • Take Out Valuables - Ensure all valuables and electronics are removed from your travel trailer. Exposure to cold temperatures can harm these items, and, in certain instances, they might become enticing targets for thieves.
  • Pest Control - Prevent pests by placing mothballs or dryer sheets in storage spaces. Additionally, inspect for any openings that might allow mice or other pests to enter, and promptly seal these areas.
  • Fluid Drainage - When storing for an extended duration, ensure to drain all fluids to prevent freezing or the accumulation of condensation, which could lead to damage.
  • Disconnect Battery - Disconnect the battery to prevent it from draining. Store the battery in a warm, dry location.
  • Ventilation - Even during winter, your travel trailer needs good ventilation to prevent moisture buildup that could lead to mildew or mold. Install vent covers if you don’t have them, and leave the vents slightly open.
  • Cover Your Trailer - Purchase a premium trailer cover to shield it from UV rays and various weather elements.
  • Check Tire Pressure - Before storing your trailer, make sure to check and maintain the proper inflation of its tires to prevent the formation of flat spots.
