Having an RV can be one of life’s greatest pleasures.

You don’t have to worry about hotels or always eating out when you’re traveling, because your RV is truly a mobile home. When travel season is over, consider parking your RV at POUCH Self-Storage to free up your driveway space. Keep reading to learn how to get your RV ready for storage.
When you’re not using your RV during the off-season, be cautioned that some critters might try and take up residence while you’re gone. Mice, squirrels, and other pests can get into your RV if it is not completely sealed off. In addition to leaving a mess in your camper, rodents can chew through wires, plastic, and rubber parts. Check underneath your RV to see if there are any openings where pests could enter. They only need a small amount of space to gain entry, so look carefully with a flashlight. You should also seal off any spaces around where plumbing and wires enter your RV. If you can see light through any gaps, those gaps are big enough to let pests in.
Readying the Interior
When you are getting ready to store your RV , make sure you clean out the fridge and any food in cabinets or drawers. In addition to being attractive to pests, any food left behind could end up rotting and causing a mess. Defrost the freezer and leave baking soda in the fridge with the doors open to let it air out. Shut any blinds or shades to prevent carpet and upholstery from fading or cracking in the sun, and leave your drawers and cabinets open.

A young man and his girlfriend came in to Pouch Self Storage – Anaheim looking for a small space to rent. I asked him how he heard about us. He said he has lived in the area his whole life. He used to walk passed us every day going to and from school. He also told me that when he was a little boy, he imagined that our facility was a place where we kept kangaroos. Because of our logo on our truck and sign out front, he thought that we transported the kangaroos in the truck too.
We have been here for over 20 years and are an integral part of this community. A vast number of our tenants rent with us because their parents and grandparents have used us in the past. There is no greater compliment than welcoming a new tenant that was referred to us by a friend or family member.
Sometimes using the right equipment has its disadvantages. During one of our ADA repairs, we had a fountain show. When some of our tenants asked what happened, we replied “That’s part of our repair and maintenance upgrade.” However, freshening up from the hot summer day, with the coolness of the water mist coming from the fountain was very refreshing.

You can purchase good boxes from POUCH Self Storage where we offer a variety of moving and packing supplies . Check it out when you are reserving your storage unit and Free Truck Move.
Organize Your Belongings
The cheapest and easiest way to move is with as few things as possible. Start making piles of your belongings you don’t need to take with you. These can be donated, recycled, sold, or put into a self-storage unit. Of the things you want to keep, organize them into boxes. Number each box and keep a sheet of paper or computer document that lists the contents of each box. If you make the list on a smartphone app or a computerized document, you can search for a specific item and find out what box it is in.
Choose a Mover
Moving companies sometimes have specials that make their services more affordable. If you want to save as much as you can, it’s better to move your belongings yourself. You can hire somebody to help carry them on and off of the truck, or even pack your belongings for you.
