School’s out for the summer in Texas! Vacation has begun and travel trailers are being gingerly removed from the safety of DFW self storage units and inspected carefully for road-worthiness.

Kept Your Trailer Safe in Storage During The Winter Months? Good For You!
Proper protection from exposure to the elements is half the battle in caring for your trailer or RV. If you didn’t utilize climate controlled storage and the trailer was left out in the cold, here is a helpful list of safety checks to go over to ensure that it is still up to code and safe. And next year, consider renting a storage unit to keep your recreational vehicle safe. Before storing a trailer or RV make sure that it is cleaned and vacuumed out to prevent rodents and if you’re giving it a last wash before the end of the season then make sure it is completely dried out to prevent mildew. And before locking up an RV or trailer that has kitchen facilities, be sure to leave the cupboards, fridge and oven open to help dry out any leftover moisture and prevent mold from taking over appliances.
