Naples, Florida storage & maintenance

Will be bringing my 2013 AS FC 23 back to Naples for the first time next month (October). I have rented a storage space, but it is not sheltered. As an AS newbie (2 months), can anyone offer tips on:
--Best/easiest way to protect it from the sun/elements (I will park on stone)
--Are tire covers worth the cost?
--Because of the proximity to salt air, how often and how should I protect/polish the exterior?
--Should I check the caulking more often in SW Florida?
--Do any of you know a good AS service tech in the Naples area?

Many thanks--and happy Streaming!

Hi Barretta, in my opinion, JD Sanders in Alachua FL is the best AS dealer for service matters in FL. That would be about 300 miles for you from Naples. Best, Joe

2x for JD Sanders. Had my warranty work and some other work done last year. Returning in Nov for more warranty work, some PM, and a check. They had no issue doing the warranty work even though I did not purchase it there. Very satisfied with thier work.

Closer to home Lew Farber (aka lewster on this forum) is in the Naples area. Lew installed my solar and did some other work. He is very knowledgeable of AS and also does great work.

I can reccomend both. PM if you want more info.

Yes to these 2!!!

--Are tire covers worth the cost?
--Should I check the caulking more often in SW Florida?

I was in Florida Keys when hurricane Irene was blowing through the Florida Straights. Plan B was to head to Naples and put the trailer in an enclosed storage facility there (which I cant remember the name of right now) but it was not too outrageous in price. Maybe do a search for indoor RV storage Naples Fla

FYI Plan A was to hang out and watch Irene head north
