Accessories

I am wondering if everyone keeps such things as can goods and such in there camper when they are not using it for a little while.
Also I am wondering what you all think about leaving items such as bug spray,propane bottles for your lantern or grill in there?
I am trying to figure out what is your opinions on what to leave in the camper and what not to leave in there.Remember...I live in Florida so it gets hot here but then again it has been a scorcher for the whole nation right?
I am just tired of taking things out and putting them back in the Airstream and would love the most fastest way to do this.without removing to much and thinking it is going to either blowup or smell bad in the future.
We have started camping again so we are going every weekend to prepare for November to Febuary.
Thanks all.

I don't know about 'everyone' but we do keep most of our stuff right in the AS. As far as canned goods go, it is good to remember that biological processes double in speed for every ten degree centigrade rise on the average. Things age faster in hot weather. If canned goods hiss when opened or the cans become "puffy" they're no longer fit for consumption. We always take care to keep the old silver pullit from becoming a solar oven by not sealing it up airtight. If you park it unattended, some automatic ceiling vents might be helpful-the kind that close when it rains. Keep the shades drawn to cut down on infrared heating. Propane canisters shouldn't be a problem at the temperatures you should allow to exist inside your AS. Volatile and flamable liquids must be kept in appropriate sealed containers, but should not otherwise present a problem.

Hi Devoman,
We have our 64 Safari parked in our yard, and will still have to take things in and out after a trip such as: perishables, (fruits/vegetables/meats/pkgs. snacks/mayo and other condiments, beer/sodas/blue ice/dairy/pkgs of pasta)..anything also that insects/or pests would want to get into..but we do keep our sugar/salt in tight containers in the cupboards, as well as canned goods of soups, bottles pasta sauces (sealed of course), cleaning supplies (409, clorox, de-oderizers, soaps, shampoos, hair dryers, curling iron, extra t.p., paper towels, cooking ware/serving ware. We do not store any flammable or combustible items like propane bottles or gas..but we have candles/matches..how's that for a start?

Mine is stored under cover and with 120v power. It is always stocked for a trip and the refrigerator stays on at all times with long term items such as butter, salad dressing, etc.

The vents stay open and the thermoststs on the Fantastic fans (one in, one out) are set so that the fans run only at the heat peak of the day.

Clothing and such items as cleaning supplies, bug spray, etc., are always left in the trailer.

Of course, the trailer is used at least twice a month year round.

Stored Items

So I guess I would not hurt to leave a few extras in the Airstream now that we are going for 2 to 3 days every week.(Except for the food though.)
