Today, September 23, 2011 marks the autumnal equinox. In layman’s terms, today is the first day of fall. This event is celebrated around the world with various festivals. Although today is not as recognized in the Western Hemisphere, it is a good time to consider plans for the fall. As most outdoor activities are coming to an end, we should all think about how we store our summer gear. This is a perfect time to thoroughly clean your camping , biking, and fishing gear for proper storage during the fall and winter months.
We would like to give you some tips on how to properly store your StowAway Cargo Carrier during the off-season.
- Wash your StowAway – All you need is water, mild detergent, and a wash rag. Simply wipe it down and rinse.
- Find a secure location – Whether it’s in your garage or outside your house, try to find an area that provides some protection from the elements. While the StowAway is weather resistant, we suggest using a trap if you must store the carrier outdoors.
- Close the lid – Our boxes are made of an extremely durable material but it does tend to expand and contract with varying temperature. We suggest you store the box in the closed position to keep the two section from expanding/contracting too much.
Our cargo boxes are perfect for storing equipment during the off-months. Might also want to keep you accessories (hitch tightener, keys, hitch lock) in the carrier so you’re ready to go as soon as next season rolls along.
