The inherent problem with RVs
Ask any RV owner what the biggest problem is that they face with their RV, and chances are they will tell you it is leaking. All RVs which have seams in their construction, and all RVs which have roof-mounted fans, air-conditioning, or solar panels, are prone to leaking problems.
You won’t hear that fact from an RV salesman as they are trying to sell you an RV, but it is the truth known by almost all RV owners. Yes, the leaks can be controlled, for the most part, with a tube of caulking/sealant, but after a few years, even the best sealant will lose its effectiveness, leaving you with leak damage on the inside of the RV.
Two reasons for Indoor RV storage
But leakage is only the first problem faced by RV owners; the second problem is damage done by oxidation, or the chemical reaction caused by excessive temperatures. Oxidation is the primary source/cause of rust, and all RVs are prone to it. If you leave your RV outside, even if you cover it with a heavy RV cover, the changing temperatures will eventually cause oxidation and do damage to the surfaces of your RV.
Again, most RV salesmen will not mention this to you when they are selling you an RV . . . but they should!
Indoor RV storage is the protection you need
The only thing which can totally guard against leaking is to park the RV indoors, and the only way to guard against oxidation is to park the RV indoors with a constant temperature i.e. climate controlled storage.
Does indoor RV storage cost more? Yes, it does! Does climate controlled storage cost more? Yes, it does! But considering the cost of replacing sections of your RV due to leakage, or replacing parts damaged by oxidation, and it is not hard to see that paying extra for indoor RV storage is a wise move over the long-run. It is a classic case of “pay now or pay much more later.”
