Storing Roadtrek For Winter

6 posts in this topic

I am getting ready to store my Roadtrek for our Wisconsin winters.

Three questions:

1) Is it best to remove the two twelve volt coach batteries and keep them in my basement where I can charge them periodically and keep them from freezing?

2) Is it best to fill the vehicle gas tank and add Stabil to treat the gasoline for a six month storage?

3) Should I disconnect the vehicle battery to prevent running it down during storage?

Thanks,

Jerry

Jerry,

1) YES.

2. YES, full and Stabil and if you can find non-ethanol gasoline, it stores better than ethanol fuel. http://pure-gas.org/index.jsp?stateprov=WI

3) Better to remove and store above freezing/charge just like house battery, but if left in, disconnect AND don't let it get deeply discharged or it will freeze.

When treating the fuel with Stabil mix 1/2 to 1 oz per gallon and then drive vehicle a short distance to get the treated fuel throughout the fuel system

Should you put the Stabil in before you fill up? Or would you fill up, add it at the gas station and drive home....?

Add the Stabil before filling up. That way the fuel you add will help distribute the Stabil. Then, yes, drive at least 5 miles so it is distributed throughout the fuel system.

I noticed at a recent fill-up at Murphy (at a Walmart) that they had a "no-alcohol" option on their regular gasoline. It was a few cents higher than their gasoline with alcohol option.
