Security Tips when Storing RVs 
If you're planning to store your RVs for the winter, here are some tips to keep your RVs safe and secure:

1. Remove the batteries and keep them at home.
2. Inflate your tires
3. Remove those appliances that are not bolted down like your TV and microwave oven. If you can remove them, others could.
4. Invest in a sturdy lock for your trailer to keep everything safe

Re: Security Tips when Storing RVs 
Great tips, Jeremy. Although I'd personally include the tires among the things that I'd be bringing home with me to store in the garage during the winter and just mount the RV onto blocks. That would not only make sure that the tires won't get stolen. It also helps relieve the pressure on the tires, making them last longer.

Invest with a storage facility that provides a proximity card reader access. These storage facilities can be quite expensive, but they are considered by many to be among the safest and most secure places to store your RV during the winter time.

Re: Security Tips when Storing RVs 
Make sure that your insurance policy covers any damage to your RV while it's in storage. No matter how safe the facility may look, anything can still happen. Most storage facilities will ask you to sign a waiver that they would not be responsible for some damages that may occur while in storage.
