We are proud but inexperienced new owners of Escape 5.0. We just back from a long but thoroughly enjoyable drive back from Sumas, WA. Really pleased with our camping experience with our Escape.
We will soon need to park the camper at a storage facility for several weeks - away from home. We have some questions related to that:
What are the steps to take before storing (aside from winterization)?
We have emptied the gray and black tanks, will be emptying the fresh water tank. The questions we have are: (a) Do we turn off the refrigerator or turn the power off to the camper? If latter, how do we do that? (b) How do we keep the refrigerator doors open while it is stored? (c) Any other steps besides emptying the tanks and addressing the power/battery that we should take?
We have lithium batteries in our camper. Our storage is covered but not temperature controlled. The local temperatures can fall below freezing and sometimes remain in teens (Fahrenheit) for week to 10 days. Are there special steps required to protect the batteries?
We would appreciate any advice.
PS: The following is likely a completely irrelevant addition but we got the item in the image with our Escape. What is it and what does it do?
