Bug bomb

Has anyone used bug bomb spray canisters in their RV after sitting in a storage yard for the winter? How many days do you let it sit before you re-enter the RV?

Bug bombs

Use them all the time. Make sure everything is turned off. I open up all the slides, drawers and cabinets. Normally I removed all the dishes for a quick wash. All my towels and lindens are in vacuum bags, so I don't worry about them. After I set them off, I wait over night. Then I'll open the coach up for a day. Wipe down all the surfaces. Then I'm ready to go.

X2. I will set off 3 inside and 1 or 2 in basement area.
Still do this even with a MH now instead of Montana.
Also use spider spray around outside if stored or camped
in one place for more than a few days.

As noted above, make SURE everything is off. I responded to an incident one time where someone set off a bug bomb and left their house, forgetting the pilot light in the hot water heater. The resulting explosion took out a wall and shifted the house on the foundation.

Yeah the batteries are out of the Monty, so there should be nothing that could cause a spark?
