Boat & RV Storage
Having a boat or RV can be incredibly exciting. You’re able to pack-up and take your family on an adventurous road trip, enjoy a fun day at the lake, or maybe both. We know that you wouldn’t ever want to risk storing your boat or RV in an area where their safety is compromised. In short, finding a great place to store your vacation vehicles can be a challenging endeavor, especially when you’re hoping to save most of your RV or boat related funds for your actual excursions, rather than storing your equipment properly.
When you choose Kiowa Falcon Storage to keep your RV or boat safe, you’re choosing a storage company that puts their customers and their belongings first. We have space and availability to store boats and RVs at both of our Colorado locations, Kiowa and Falcon, and we allow our customers access to their belongings whenever they want it.
With locations that are completely safe and secure, and online reservations that are coming soon, what’s not to love about Kiowa Falcon Storage?
Our rate for boat and RV storage is a flat rate of $35 per month.
1. Change The Oil
Just like any vehicle that uses gas and oil, your boat will eventually need an oil change. Over time, water and acids can get into your oil and start to corrode the engine. Change the filter and flush it so that nothing remains in the reservoir. At that point, add the fresh oil.
2. Refresh The Coolant System
Along the same lines as your oil, draining and flushing the coolant system is a smart thing to do. Fill the reservoir with antifreeze so that nothing freezes over during the colder season.
3. Spray with Fogging Oil
Spraying fogging oil into the carburetor or through the spark plug holes will help keep your engine’s moving parts protected during the winter months.
4. Remove or Loosen Belts
During the winter, belts will often crack due to the cold if they’re not loosened sufficiently.
5. Disconnect the Battery
Depending on the age of your battery, you definitely don’t want to drain all of the juice during the colder months. Disconnecting it will prevent this.
6. Fill Your Gas Tank
Contrary to what you might be thinking, storing your boat with an empty tank isn’t the best idea. Fill your tank with gas and a gasoline stabilizer so that the months of idleness won’t change the way your gas works.
7. Prep the Interior
Remove any electronics, organic materials, leather, canvas, or any kind of fabric so that they won’t mold, mildew, or or become worn during the winter months.
8. Wash and Wax
Clean your boat thoroughly inside and out and then coat the outside with a layer of wax. This will help prevent corrosion on the body.
9. Use a Boat Cover
A cover on your boat will help to protect it from dirt, dust, and moisture. A cover will help keep your boat ready to be taken back out and used when the summer months finally hit.
10. Bring Your Boat to Kiowa Falcon

1. Empty the Cupboards and Cabinets
Remove all food and liquids from the RV cabinets including anything that will go bad or be affected by pressure changes during the winter months. Feel free to leave any non perishables if you don’t need them during the months of storage.
The last thing that you want to have to worry about during your RV storage months is critters and vermin being attracted to the crumbs and food particles left in your carpet. Make sure that you vacuum thoroughly before storing.
3. Scrub the Fridge
When they’re not in use, fridges can get especially nasty when they’re not cleaned thoroughly. Make sure that before you store your RV, you scrub and sanitize your fridge so that you don’t allow any moisture or food residue to run amok.
In the same way that you would winterize a home that isn’t being inhabited during the winter season, your RV also requires winterization, especially for the plumbing system. Since you want to make sure that this step is done absolutely right, follow the instructions from the manufacturer or dealer. Winterizing your RV is an absolute must.
5. Bring Your RV to Kiowa Falcon Storage
Both of our Kiowa Falcon storage locations have amazing options to safely store your RV. We also allow you access to your RV whenever you want it. That way, if you’re planning a winter ski trip with the family, you’ll be able to get to your RV easily and without needing to make an appointment.
