Fall is upon us in West Michigan, and we'll soon have to put our TI away for winter storage.
I'd love to hear any storage tips from you all.

We have leased a spot at a local marina within their large indoor cold storage facility. The TI will be stored upright on our trailer with the Hobie cradles.

We plan to give her a good silicon polish and strap her onto the trailer with the Hobie cover. The storage facility suggested putting a plastic drop cloth over the cover to reduce damage from dust or birds

I just read on another thread that loosening the bungies in storage is a good idea, so I've added that to the list.

Because I've had good luck in the past with camper storage, I'll be putting some cheap perfumed dryer sheets under the boat cover to discourage rodents.

Should we put the trailer up on blocks to keep the weight off the tires? It's not that heavy, but ... ?

Am I missing anything?
