Storage Tips

Looking for advice on storing your boat or RV? Here are some tips our team has put together for On Solid Ground RV & Boat Storage customers!


Check the pressure of all tires and check for dry rot. Cover any tires that will be exposed to the elements.


Remove any batteries. Store the batteries in an area that is not subjected to the elements. Periodically test and charge the batteries if needed.

Perishable Items

Make sure to remove all perishable items from any cabinets, refrigerators, or other parts of the vehicle.


Turn off refrigerators. Verify that all power sources are off.


Turn off supply valves and appliances. Keep any vents open. If stored for an extended period, make sure to inspect your propane system before use!

RV Vents

Open rooftop vents to circulate air. This helps prevent mold and mildew.


Place covers over your vehicle—especially over furniture—for an added layer of protection against dust and grime.
