Maximize Your RV’s Safety: Unlock the Benefits of Winter Storage

Posted on May 23, 2024

Your RV helps create sweet family memories, so treat it to the very best in storage care.

The arrival of spring and our warm Okanagan weather prompts the exciting task of collecting your recreational vehicle (RV) from winter storage. You’ve enjoyed full peace of mind during the winter knowing that your favourite holiday maker has been securely taken care of in a professional storage location. Now, as you gear up for family adventures on the open road, it’s paramount to ensure your RV is in peak condition after its winter hiatus. Here's a comprehensive guide to help you prepare your RV for your thrilling journeys ahead:

Exterior and Engine Care for your RV in Kelowna

It’s been parked for a while, so as you’re heading home in your RV, pay attention to any unusual noises, vibrations, or handling issues. Thoroughly wash and then inspect the exterior for any signs of issues like rust. Address these promptly to prevent them from worsening. Inspect the tires for proper inflation and tread.

After sitting idle, your vehicle will need to be checked for all fluid levels, including oil, coolant, brake fluid, and windshield washer. Top off any that are low and replace them if necessary. Check under the hood and inspect the engine for leaks, cracked hoses, or loose connections. Not sure what you’re looking at or hearing? Ask your friends to suggest a reputable mechanic who will ensure your RV is in tip-top shape for your road plans ahead.

Interior Care for your RV 

Vacuum the carpets and upholstery, wipe down all surfaces, and polish the windows. Test the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system to ensure it's working properly. Replace the cabin air filter, if necessary, for better air quality and comfort during your travel hours.

Winter conditions in the Okanagan can be particularly brutal with our ice and snow, but storing your RV in a dedicated, professional facility like Space Centre Storage keeps it as safe and protected as possible.
