Your Checklist for Moving to a New State

Are you moving from one state to another? My name is Laura, and I am a real estate expert. I work in multiple states and find that many of my clients don't know that each state has different laws about moving. For example, some states require you to get a new drivers license and car registration immediately while others give you a significant grace period. Some states require you to pay a fee for property you register while others do not. I will provide a checklist of things you need to consider before moving from one state to another. I hope you will learn a lot that can make your move easier.

Tips For Safely Storing Your RV For The Winter Season

by Lester Herrera

If you are done using your RV for the summer and are getting ready to store it for the winter, then it is important that you know how to safely store it. While you may already realize the importance of draining fluids and adding stabilizer to the gas tank, what you might not be aware of is the many other vital tasks that you should complete. To this end, here are some tips for safely storing your RV for winter so that it will be ready to go when the summer RVing season rolls around again:

Tip: Open All of the Doors and Cabinets in Your RV 

Before moving your RV into storage, you should open up all of the interior cabinets, doors, and drawers inside of it. By opening all of the enclosed spaces, you can prevent them from developing odors while your RV sits unused.

Tip: Tip Close All of Your RV's Curtains

Since sunshine coming through your RV's windows can lead to fading damage of its floors and furniture, before you store your RV for winter you should close all of its curtains and blinds. In addition, you should protect the front seats of your RV by placing a sun shade in the front window.

Tip: Take Steps to Keep Rodents Out of Your RV During the Winter

While your RV is parked for the winter, it is a target for rodents that are looking for places to get out of the weather and set up their winter homes. You can discourage rodents from damaging your RV by emptying out any food from the RV and sealing up any small holes where the rodents can enter. You should also place mouse traps under your RV so that rodents will not crawl up into your motor and chew on the wiring.

Tip: Store Your RV in a Secure Location Out of the Weather if at All Possible

Finally, when it is time to park your RV for the winter, you should make every attempt to find a secure storage unit or other location where your RV can be indoors or under cover. Since you will be storing your RV away from home, make sure that it is locked up tight and that the place you choose to store it is locked as well and has security cameras to monitor any activity around your RV while it is in storage.
