Prepare and protect your boat or RV in the off-season
Follow these tips to make sure your vehicle is ready for winter.
- Review vehicle manuals for winterization and maintenance.
- Check rubber seals, gaskets, roof tops, decks, windows, etc. to prevent water intrusion.
- Remove anything that retains water.
- Turn cushions on edge to prevent mold and mildew.
- Fill gas tank to minimize condensation. Add a fuel stabilizer.
- Change oil/oil filter to protect your engine from impurities.
- Turn off refrigerator. Disconnect battery cables and turn off all battery switches or remove the battery completely.
- Open and clean drawers, lockers, refrigerator and freezer.
- Use a coupler lock on trailers. Lock all compartments and entry doors.
- BOATS: Pressure wash hull to remove marine organisms. Clean thru-hulls and strainers. Open seacocks to drain any water. Store the boat “bow high.” Remove the hull drain plug so rainwater can escape.
- Close windows and blinds—and keep the RV/boat covered.
- Block all wheels securely so your vehicle/trailer can’t roll.
- Remove your keys, update your contact information at the storage facility, and have someone check on your vehicle periodically.
- Review your insurance policy for the optional specialized coverages you may need, such as Roadside Assistance, Emergency On-Water Towing (Boat) and Vacation Liability (RV), just to name a few. For more information on these or other specialized coverages, please contact us.
