Tips to Prepare Your RV for Storage

One of the benefits of living an RV lifestyle is to travel to warmer or cooler climates according to your personal preference. Perhaps you like to seek cooler temperatures when the Texas heat is blazing; or maybe you prefer to travel and explore during winter months when there are fewer vacationers on the road. However, there may be times when your schedule dictates that your travel plans be put on hold. When this is the case, where do you store your RV?

Tips to Prepare Your RV for Storage

Parking an RV in a residential neighborhood is a rarity as there likely is inadequate space for RV storage in the garage, side yard, or behind the house. Additionally, parking an RV in a residential area may be banned by city ordinances due to height restrictions, blocking the sidewalk, potential hazards while backing in/out to park, or exceeding the maximum number of parked vehicles per house.

Party Barn Boat and RV storage offers plenty of space, protection, easy access, and peace of mind to protect and store your RV any time of the year. We have 150 storage spots available. You choose whether your needs require uncovered, covered, or enclosed storage. Our storage property is securely gated and accessed only via security code. We are conveniently located near Lake Lavon and Lake Ray Hubbard, just a short drive from the Dallas suburbs. We offer flexible rental agreements including monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, and yearly to meet your needs.

Before bringing your RV to Party Barn Boat and RV storage, consider these tips when preparing your RV for storage:

  • Clean your RV inside and out to prevent mold and mildew.
  • Ensure all food is removed to avoid attracting unwanted critters.
  • Cover your RV with a breathable cover (or consider enclosed storage to protect from weather and pollen).
  • Cover your tires to reduce UV damage to them.
  • Flush and clean all tanks.
  • Cover the water heater, furnace, and refrigerator vents.
  • Consider adding biocide to the fuel tank to deter algae growth in the fuel.
  • Defrost and dry out the freezer and refrigerator, and place a box of baking soda inside to eliminate odors.

You Catch the Lunker, We’ll Store the Boat

If you are a big bass fishermen, the seasons of the year are not Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, but rather pre-spawn, spawn and post spawn, and dates on the calendar are not nearly as important as water temperature. In other words you think about things a tad different than most folks and that is okay. We like hardcore fish brain here at Party Barn Boat & RV Storage. Not everyone is going to land a lunker out of Lake Ray Hubbard or Lake Lavon this year, but you my friend just might with some good old due diligence to go along with your knack and talent.

Like a Good Scout

Be prepared is sound advice for whatever you are doing in life and what better way to be ready to hit the water than to store your boat at Party Barn Boat & RV Storage? Located within 3 miles of both Lake Lavon and Lake Ray Hubbard, we have over five acres of storage on a twelve inch crushed asphalt surface. With covered, enclosed, and uncovered storage available we offer exactly what you need so don’t spend valuable fishing time playing the car park shuffle. You know the drill I’m talking about … Get up at o-dark-thirty to move the wife’s car down the street so you can hitch up. Back the truck up while trying not to blast your neighbors bedroom window with your headlights. Pull the boat out ever-so-slow, and leave your truck idling while you park your wife’s car back in the drive. Or worse yet, is when you have to park your boat in that narrow strip between houses and you have no space to back-in, or maneuver around the hull to check things over before you set out in the morning.

Party Barn Boat & RV Storage offers easy access and plenty of space to hitch up and drop off so call us today to secure your spot before the big ones lay those eggs. We can’t guarantee you a lunker in the pre-spawn or any other time, but we can prove you with a convenient, secure storage facility to get your fishing day started and finished with less parking hassle.
