Faqs and Tips

How do you charge to store a motor-home, boat, or trailer?
We charge by the foot. Please contact us for current pricing.
Do you require a security deposit?
No we do not.
Can I leave my tow bar on the motor-home?
If you want to pay the extra footage, you can leave it on. We measure from the front to the furthest back measurement, so bikes, hitches tow-bars, tow dolly's, all make the measurement longer. Remember we are renting space.
Do I need to sign a contract?
No, we do have an agreement that you sign with very important information on it,but no long term contracts. We have a one month minimum charge, but you can stay for a shorter time.
When is rent due?
All customers rent is due on the 1st, no matter when you move in. It is then late after the 10th, and you will be assessed a fee.
What if I want to be plugged in?
We have electric available for a fee of $25.00 per month, plus tax.
Do I have to pay when I am gone?
YES, unless you move out. If you move out and we fill up we will not hold you a space unless you are paying while you are gone. We require a 15 day written notice if you are planning to move out.
Should I keep the insurance in affect while I am in storage?
Yes, some insurance company's will give you a storage rate if you are not using the vehicle at all, but be sure to put it back into affect before you take it out. Our insurance only covers any damage that we do while parking you, so if a hurricane or a fire does damage your vehicle, your insurance will have to cover that.
How do I get in after hours?
Every customer is given their own private code, which allows us to monitor who is coming and going, and will not allow anyone in who do not belong here.
Do I have to show proof of ownership?
Yes you do.
Below is a check list of things you may want to consider before putting your RV in storage. The longer you plan on storing the RV, the more things down the list you may want to consider.
Review the owner’s manual for other things that may be specific to your RV such as LP gas, generator, water heater and sanitation system storage. Use the check list when removing your RV from storage so you don’t over look anything in getting the vehicle ready for the road again.
It’s a good idea to wash and wax your RV before you store it. Bird and bug residue left on paint for long periods may cause damage to the finish. This is especially important if it is love bug season here in Florida. The acidity of the dead love bugs can cause pits and etches in automotive paint. Clean the rooftop air conditioner filters and cover the outside unit. Turn off propane cylinders and cover the regulator. A cover will help keep dust off the RV, but is more important if you are storing outside to keep the sun off the vehicle. If you don't use a full cover, consider tire covers to help prevent sun damage and dry rot. Spray lubricant into the locks to prevent rust. Empty and rinse the holding tanks. For long term storage, cover the vents to the range hood and furnace.
Clean and vacuum the interior. Don't forget food crumbs or wrappers under the seats. Remove food from the cabinets and refrigerator. Turn the refrigerator off. Be sure to check all power sources such as 12 v and LP gas. Clean the refrigerator and leave the door open to ventilate. Food may attract unwanted insects. If you clean the interior or carpet, make sure it is dry before storing to prevent mildew. Make sure all the windows and vents are closed. If your storage unit is not climate controlled you may want to put a desiccant, such as Damp Rid, inside the vehicle.
Fill the gas tank but don't overfill to help prevent moisture from condensing in an empty tank and causing rust and corrosion. For longer storage periods you may want to consider adding a fuel stabilizer, such as STA-BIL. It is a good idea to drive the vehicle about 10 miles after adding the fuel stabilizer so it can circulate through the entire fuel system.
Add about 10 pounds of pressure to each tire to help prevent flat spots. If flat spots do develop, they often go away once the RV has been driven for about 25 miles.
There are differing thoughts on what to do with the battery. Disconnecting the battery will help it keep its charge longer. Disconnecting will usually cause the clock, radio and other electronics to be reset once you connect the battery again. Leaving the battery connected will power the electronic items. This will cause the battery to discharge faster. It is best if the battery terminals are cleaned before putting the vehicle in storage. Coat the terminals with grease or a battery terminal spray to help prevent new corrosion.
Windshield wipers
Some people also remove their windshield wipers if their RV will be stored for a long time. This can prevent the wiper from developing a permanent curve.
