You have a special situation in that part of the country but in MOST areas the best strategy is to leave a window or two open (as long as they don't allow rain or snow to get in) so the RV stays the same as outside humidity.


That humidity would be at 100%, or very close?
Not sure if open windows are a good idea here.

Yeah, that would be best for the trailer. But around here, within 5 or 6 years, you'd pay more than the cost of the trailer for storage. Need to make a decision then: leave it outside and replace "for free" (new trailer) every 5 or 6 years or keep in inside storage in top shape and keep camper forever.

Yeah, my uncle stores his 21' MH in an indoor storage unit and it costs him $250/month! Forget that!

WOW ~ thanks for all the suggestions... and SORRY to bring the subject up, .... LOL

Our HTT is parked in our driveway, so I'll be using some of your suggestions given...


I'll await the discussions over the next month or so, on HOW to winterize.....

Thanks again all for your sharing of your knowledge, it really does make it nice to know that 'someone' out there as the answers....
