Jet Ski Storage
Nothing fills your days with more joy during the summer months than setting sail on the open waters for weekends filled with Jet Ski races. These watercraft are fun for the whole family and allow you the perfect excuse to escape to the lake every chance you get. However, once summer wraps up and the outdoor adventures begin to dwindle, you will need to find a place for your Jet Ski to be stored.
While storing it at your home is a great option, this is not always an option. HOA restrictions and a lack of storage space in your driveway, garage, or outdoor area can prevent you from keeping it at your house. Luckily, you can find convenient jet ski storage at your nearby RecNation facility. Whether you need short-term storage during the winter or long-term storage due to a lack of storage space in your home, RecNation is here to help.

Preparing Your Jet Ski For Long-Term Storage
Before you can begin storing your jet ski at a nearby RecNation facility, there are some steps that need to be taken to make sure your vehicle is in the same condition as it was when you dropped it off. Below you will find some tips for preparing your jet ski for long-term storage.
Cleaning Your Jet Ski
The first thing you need to do is clean the exterior of your Jet Ski. Scrub it with warm water and mild soap to remove grime, dirt, or salt if you’ve taken your Jet Ski into saltwater. This will prevent rust from forming on it. You will also want to apply a coat of wax to protect the exterior from UV rays and empty all storage spaces. Leave all the compartment doors open to circulate air while it is being stored.
Performing Mechanical Maintenance
First, you need to take a look at your owner’s manual to ensure you are flushing your system properly. However, most of the time you will drain your engine of water by tilting the front end of your Jet Ski up just slightly and running the engine in 20- to 30-second intervals until water stops coming out. Once you’ve drained your Jet Ski of any lingering water, you will need to flush your cooling system. This will help rid your Jet Ski of dirt, algae, and any other grime that made its way into your system.
You will also need to make sure your gas tank is full and that you have added a fuel stabilizer to keep your fuel from going stale. Next, change your oil and replace the oil filter. You will also need to lubricate your brakes and steering equipment in order to prevent corrosion. Lastly, remove the battery and place it in a separate location. We recommend keeping it in a climate-controlled environment to keep it from enduring any damage. You may also consider keeping it connected to an automatic battery charger while it isn’t in use.
