Winter Storage & Winter Hibernation

 

 

 

Here are some additional ideas to protect your investment.

 

  • If the vehicle is going to be sitting in one spot for an extended period of time, over inflate the tires by +10 lbs

 

  • Place Styrofoam blocks under the tires to help eliminate flat spots from forming on the tires

 

  • Apply a good coat of wax to help protect the paint surface on the vehicle

 

  • Store vehicle with full tank of gas to prevent fuel from contamination
