Need some ideas on storage. I plan on a full cover for my C but outside so how do I keep the critters out? I live in southern AZ. Thanks

You can't. No matter what you do, some will find their way in.
Some people build moats around them, filled with hungry alligators, but the smart critters use the gators backs as stepping stones to get across.

Best bet is to not make it inviting...get all food out and clean up any spills. With no food or food smells, there isn't much to draw them in.

We also put out some bags of moth balls. You do have to air it out for a few days in the spring but unless you are particularly sensitive, it seems to work well.

25+ years of owning RV's....never a rodent. Clean it. Fill any holes you can get to with spray foam.

For many years I used outside storage lots in Texas and Nevada including gravel, asphalt and concrete pads for my TT with no rodent or critter problems except for occasional wasp nest on the roof air conditioner and underneath the TT giving me a scary nasty surprise so I learned to check often with wasp spray and had mean fun with the devils.

My DW uses laundry dryer sheets. The cheap ones from Dollar Tree, Etc.

Seems to work.

Depends upon location.

I never had a critter problem until I moved to Minnesota. Now they eat dryer sheets, Irish Spring, and every other remedy that is supposed to get rid of them.

I have yet to solve the problem.

I’d worry more about the sun than critters down there.
By cover I hope you mean “covered” storage. I’d guess the best soft cover is good for maybe 2 years in the AZ sun.

Cats and Fox do a good job at my friends camp. He feeds them just enough to keep them around but not so much that they lose their hunting skills.
