The 4th of July is a time for celebrating our independence and freedom, and to thank those who have fought to protect our country. It’s a time well spent with family and friends, and this often includes celebrating with popular traditions like camping and boating. Prepping for these trips can be overwhelming at times, but so can storing your RV or boat when the trip is over.

Don’t stress! Check out these tips for storing your RV or boat after your holiday fun this 4th of July:

  • Remove all food and debris from your RV or boat. You don’t want to discover a moldy pack of hot dog buns or the lingering smell of trash the next time you’re preparing to roll out! This will also keep pests from trying to get in or cause any potential issues.
  • Clean your RV or boat before you store it. This will help to prevent material build-up, pests, and damage. This can include the exterior of your RV and especially boats after going out on the lake. Don’t forget those internal systems as well like your RV’s holding tanks.
  • Protect your RV or boat battery life by utilizing a trickle charger or disconnecting the cables. This will help to prevent the battery from draining especially when stored over longer periods of time. Some of our Pink Door locations also offer solar-powered trickle chargers to make sure you’re ready to go on your next voyage out.
  • Inspect your RV or boat trailer tires carefully before storing it in your unit. Giving your tires, exterior and interior, a once over before storage can help make sure you catch any issues early. This also means you’ll avoid any surprises when you’re preparing for the next holiday trip!
A well-maintained boat and RV can last for many years and will be more reliable and enjoyable to use. One of the best ways to protect your Boat and RV from environmental elements is using a covered or enclosed storage space. At Pink Door Storage & RV we offer a wide range of enclosed, covered and traditional parking options. Many of our facilities feature amenities like temperature-controlled RV units and dump/wash stations. Features vary on location so check your local Pink Door Storage to see what type of units & amenities are available!

May your Independence Day be filled with fireworks, good food, and quality time spent with loved ones (and not stressing about where you’re going to store your boat later!).

Happy 4th of July!
