Storage of 2016 Thor Four winds 23U in Florida

Motor home was previously stored in enclosed building in MI. Now living in Florida. What can be stored in RV in storage? What can not be stored? Vents open or closed? Used dryer sheets to deter mice, etc. In MI. Motor Home maybe stored outside. Appreciate what suggestions you may have. Thank you.

I'd leave the vents cracked just a tiny bit... Less chance of rain finding it's way inside.
But if you have MaxxAir Vent covers: you can certainly leave them open a whole lot wider.
We always strip our rig right down to the way we got it from the Dealership. Nothing goes into storage with it. (Nothing left behind to be stolen)
Dryer sheets to deter the mice is a good option; but we always use cotton balls soaked in peppermint oil.

EDT: I almost forgot... It's not a bad idea to shut off your propane right at the tank!

Stored rig outdoors in Michigan (storage lot thanks to HOA) - now in Florida and stored outdoors on my property (no HOA)...

With the downpours we get here - especially this time of year in Central FL - I won't leave the vents open (don't have Maxxair vents)... The rain will get into any opening - and water isn't going to be your friend.
An RV neighbor down here suggested DampRid - I keep a large bucket of it in the main RV living area, and smaller tubs in the basement storage to pull out moisture.

Use your favorite method to deter other pests... There are threads with lots of opinions on that.

Remove any food packaged in plastic wrap/cardboard to prevent pests... We leave staples like flour/sugar in hard plastic containers that seal well.
And enjoy not having to winterize anymore!!
Welcome to Florida.

Away for the season?? Why?
This is Florida after all... The season never ends
After 20 years in Michigan, havenít lifted a snow shovel or winterized an RV in a few years...

Actually nor storing for entire year. Was not sure of what could be stored in unit during hot temperature time. HOA rules no unit on property. Found covered storage yesterday. Thanks for your response.
