Did you enjoy riding the trails or waves this summer? Already thinking about riding your ATV or taking out your boat next year? Start preparing for the next season now, so your outdoor toy is ready as soon as you are. 

 

Here are some tips to follow now before the temperatures freeze or snow flies: 

 

  1. Tidy up. Wash and clean the exterior and interior. As you get into some of those smaller places, look for any damaged or loose parts that may need repair. Consider making the repairs now to prevent larger repairs down the road. Remove and store accessories that are valuable or could be damaged over the winter months.

  2. System check. When your vehicle is inactive for stretches of time, it can lead to moisture issues like rust or corrosion. Refer to your owner’s manual regarding what to do with the fuel, fluids, filters, and battery. It may suggest adding fuel stabilizer and filling up the gas tank, adding anti-freeze, and changing the oil and filter.

  3. Store it. If you are going to store your vehicle outside, a custom and breathable cover will offer protection against the elements. Parking it under a canopy or garage will help decrease exposure to wind, rain, and sunlight. It may be best to remove the battery and place safely inside. Using a battery maintainer can keep the battery charged all winter long.
