Disconnecting the battery is most important if your RV or vehicle will be sitting for an extended period of time. The rule of thumb is longer then 30 days, remove the battery.

Before taping the moving boxes closed, go through and make a few edits to clothes you no longer wear. PATIO CHAIRS Fabric covers and cushions that sit outside all season hold in pollen and dirt. Before moving chair pads to storage, clean with soap and water or send off to an industrial cleaning company. A touch of bleach in your soapy water will lift stains from the last cookout. For plastic chairs, give them a fresh new look with paint or wax. Metal chairs and tables get rust fast after a season of summer storms. If you notice a spot of rust, sand it down and reapply paint to protect it while in storage.
