Storage

Hi again, Erie here
This is for anyone who owns an Escape and lives on Vancouver Island BC......in or around Victoria, yes Duncan and Nanaimo count. We will be picking up out trailer Sept 8th, will do some camping but then need storage. We live in a Condo so can't store it on our property....they frown on such things in guest parking. Does anybody have any suggestions for a place to store the trailer that is secure, not too expensive and has access to power in case we need in to top up battery etc.

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions

Erie. Oops apparently can't spell my own name

Get a solar panel on the trailer of solar ready, that way the sun can keep your battery charged.

IF the trailer is stored outside in the sun and the panel is not shaded or covered with snow and if the storage is started with fully charged batteries.

Hi there,
We are thinking of storing our 19' Escape on Vancouver Island 2017 fall/winter and into 2018, somewhere between Duncan and Campbell River, and wonder if you have or heard of any recommendations. Thanks! Terry

Victoria does flower counts when the rest of the country still has snow.

I'm pretty sure a solar panel would be all that's needed to keep the batteries topped up.
