Protect Your RV's Paint and Tires with Indoor Storage

in Vehicle

A recreational vehicle is a major investment, much like a house or vacation home, and it thus needs care and maintenance. Two big issues facing RV owners that they might either be unaware of or downplay are the ravages of ozone in the air and ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun on both the exterior (top especially) of the vehicle and on the RV's tires.

The corrosive effects of UV rays and ozone can easily fade the paint on your RV, starting with the outside roof where the sun hits first. The RV's tires, if not covered, can rot and deteriorate from the elements. Over time, the ozone and UV rays will affect everything made of vinyl or rubber and fade the exterior paint of the vehicle.

If you have room, you can stow your RV on your property and either cover it fully or build an awning over it to screen out the sun, but you'll still get the effects of the ozone. Therefore you would need to cover your tires as well, along with anything else


of vinyl and rubber exposed to the elements. And any cover you buy must be made of breathable material that is both water resistant and protective against the sun's damaging UV rays. It's best, of course, to cover the entire RV and not just the roof and tires--another consideration.

This at-home arrangement can be quite a bit of a hassle, especially when you consider that every time you use your RV and bring it home to store it, you'll need to wash the vehicle thoroughly to remove the residue and the effects of the elements. Depending on the size of your RV, this can be quite the chore.

This is where indoor storage facilities come in. If you get the right facility, not only will your RV be kept away from the corrosive elements of nature when not being used, but the vehicle also will be washed, watched and maintained by the on-site service crew. Your expensive investment will be safeguarded by those who are trained to care for your RV.

At a place like Premier Indoor Storage in Corona, Calif., you'll enjoy valet-style service with 24/7 pick-up and delivery times, along with a world-class crew of specialists to check the tires, wash the vehicle, fix it when necessary -- and protect your RV and your investment.
