Storage Tips For Your Camper Cover


Using a cover can be a great way of keeping your camper from suffering needless wear and tear when you are not using it. However, it can be surprisingly easy to overlook the care needs of the camper's cover. When you make this mistake, you may find that your camper's cover is prone to suffering damages that could hinder its ability to protect the camper.

Ensure The Cover Is Dry Before Storing It

When you are ready to use the camper, you will need to remove the cover from it. However, you will also want to make sure that it is thoroughly dry before you place it in storage. If dew, rain or other sources of moisture stay on the cover, they can contribute to the materials used in it rotting. When rot does not form, discoloration may occur and the cover can develop an extremely unpleasant odor. Fortunately, these covers can dry fairly rapidly so that any disruption from waiting for the cover to dry will be kept to a minimal amount.

Periodically Clean The Cover

You should invest the time and labor in periodically cleaning the cover for the camper. Clean the cover will remove algae and other materials that could potentially damage it. Also, it will keep these materials from gradually seeping through the cover where they can damage the camper's exterior. To clean the cover, you will want to spray it with a sanitizing cleaning solution that is specifically designed for use on camper covers. If you opt for bleach or other traditional sanitizing agents, you could inadvertently damage the cover by melting holes in it.

Make Sure That The Cover Is Securely Tied To The Camper

During the times when your camper is being stored, it can experience significant weather conditions. When strong storms strike your area, the winds that they produce can be very damaging to the cover. These winds can be strong enough to rip the cover from its ties, which can also damage the camper in the process. To prevent this from happening, you should ensure that the cover is securely tied in position according to the manufacturer's recommendations. In addition to tying the cover at the correct locations, you will also want to use the highest quality chain or rope that you can afford as this will be better able to withstand the intense stresses that a storm can cause your camper to experience. You may also want to consider moving the camper during strong storms.

Improving the audio system in your vehicle

One of the first things I always replace in my vehicles is the stereo system. Although newer vehicles come equipped with some very nice stereo systems, there are always elements that are overlooked and need to be improved upon. If you aren't happy with the audio equipment in your vehicle, my blog is a great place to start. You will learn everything about what you have installed by the factory and advice for components that you can add to it to make it something that blows your mind and makes the listening experience greater than you ever thought could be possible.
