Most RV owners like to enjoy the freedom of traveling and camping during spring, summer and fall. But when winter arrives, it’s important to store your RV in a secure place – preferably at a storage resort – so that it can be safe from the cold temperatures, snow, rain and other harsh weather conditions. Unfortunately, one condition that can’t be prevented at a storage resort is mold. However, there are some steps you can take to protect your RV and prevent it from getting moldy during storage. Here are a few tips on how to prevent mold in your RV while it is being stored away for the season.
First and foremost, make sure the storage facility you choose is up to par. Look for a storage resort that offers climate-controlled units and/or moisture prevention systems such as dehumidifiers or air purification systems. Ensure the storage unit is kept at an optimal temperature year-round, and properly sealed to prevent any water or moisture from getting in. Additionally, it’s important to protect your RV from the elements. Cover it with a waterproof tarp and use the proper support poles or straps to ensure a snug fit that won’t let in any moisture or debris.
Second, make sure you thoroughly clean your RV before storing it away for the season. This will help reduce any existing mold growth as well as prevent it from forming in the future. Vacuum carpets and upholstery, clean all window seals, door frames and surfaces with a mild detergent and water solution. Don’t forget to check for any signs of mold growth around windows, vents and other areas that are prone to moisture accumulation. If you do find some mold, make sure to clean it off immediately with a mold-killing solution.
Finally, if you have the option, use an RV storage resort that provides 24/7 security and surveillance. This will help keep your RV safe from theft or damage while it is in storage. Additionally, it will give you peace of mind knowing that someone is keeping an eye on your RV and checking in on it regularly.
By following these tips, you’ll be able to protect your RV from mold while it is being stored away for the season. And when spring comes around, your RV will still be in top condition – ready to hit the road again!
