Hey there. First post, and first camper. It's a 2003 Coleman Santa Fe. It's in excellent shape. No warping on the ceiling inside. Everything is nice and dry. No cracks on the roof. The canvas is in great condition. No mold. The mechanical parts still work nice and smooth. It was barely used by the previous owner, and sat in his garage most of the time. We purchased it this summer, and put about 3500km on it in travel and camping expeditions since, but winter is coming, and I have a few questions about winter storage, and I'm hoping someone here can shed some light. I'm in Canada, so our winters might be a little harsher than some of you down south. I've read that keeping the propane tanks attached to the camper (but in the off position) is fine, and may actually be a good way to keep moisture out of the pipes. Is this correct? For tarping, I've read some fairly mixed things. Some people say never to tarp it, others say to tarp it with a breathable tarp, and others say a non breathable tarp is fine as long as it's elevated and lets the air through, so moisture doesn't build. I've got mine set up for storage currently with the propane tanks still attached. No battery though. For the tarp I have over it, it's a fairly heavy, non breathable industrial tarp (the kind they use to cover large drain pipes for transportation). My camper has bike racks on it, so the tarp is a good 8 inches above the roof on one end, with enough room for air to pass through. On the other end of the camper where there are no bike racks, I have some pool noodles laid out to elevate the tarp and keep it from being flush with the roof. Is this ok? The snow hasn't hit yet (which will put some weight on the tarp eventually, but I plan on brushing it off when it does), and there is sufficient room for air to pass over the roof of the camper to dry any moisture build up. The tarp part is my biggest concern. Come spring, I'm dreading taking it out to find the roof and ceiling all warped from moisture build up over the winter. I've also drained all the pipes of water, so that's taken care of. My biggest concern is the tarp and roof though. Any other tips and/or tricks for "winter-izing" the camper would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
