How do I mothball my Fiat motorhome?

I need to store my motorhome for two years at home under cover. I can move it to stop flats on tyres but am not keen on emptying the radiator as I need to move it for the tyres. What else should I do please?

If you are planning to store your motorhome long-term, we would suggest giving it a through clean inside and out, filling the tank with the diesel to avoid condensation and changing the oil and filter before storing.

You may wish to consider putting the vehicle on axle stands so you can store the tyres separately, this will also mean you can avoid using the handbrake. You may also want to consider using a trickle charger and we would recommend starting the vehicle and running it for around 15 minutes if this is possible.
