  • Using the parking brake while in storage can put a lot of pressure on your brakes. To ease up on the brakes, put a block behind the back wheels.
  • A cover is helpful whether in outdoor storage or indoor storage.
  • When storing, your vehicle could have sediment in the gas and oil. Replace these before moving your vehicle to long term storage.
  • Fill tires to the maximum pressure; this measurement can be found on the side of the tire.
  • While replacing the oil and gas, top off any other fluids. Come spring you will not have much work to do to get back on the road.
