A CarBag product protects your car or motorcycle while it is in storage, blocking rust, dust, insects, mold and prying eyes. Here are a few tips and guidelines to prep your car or motorcycle to be protected during storing.
CarJacket and MotoJacket are for indoor use only, and your vehicle must be thoroughly dry!
Do not wash on the day you plan to store your vehicle. Allow several days for thorough drying.
Do not drive on wet road or even wet grass just before storing.
Do not operate air conditioning before bagging as the evaporator may keep dripping water.
Repair all fluid leaks. Especially check fuel tank, fuel lines, radiator, water hoses and windshield washer system.
A freshly painted vehicle should not be bagged. Fresh paint should be properly dried/cured two to three months before storing a car or bike in any carbag.
Sweep floor and check tires to remove stones and grit that may damage the “jacket bottom”. If floor is not smooth, place tarp or other padding under jacket.
Keep jacket interior clean by putting something under vehicle to catch drips as needed.
Be sure bike or car is cool. Never park or cover vehicle while engine/exhaust is hot. Jacket material could be damaged/melted.
Put soft, clean, and dry cloth cover on the vehicle for added protection before zipping the jacket.
Store your vehicle during low humidity whenever possible. Mid-afternoon on a dry day is best.
Additional Storage Tips
Use a gas stabilizer like Sta-Bil.
Over-inflate tires 10 lbs. psi.
Check antifreeze for amount of cold protection.
Remove battery and clean with a baking soda and water mixture.
Some people place a sheet of plastic (painters drop-cloth) over jacket during use. This is very helpful in very dirty, dusty buildings.
Save jacket box for future storage of jacket.
Save OmniDry box, plastic bag, and instruction card if you plan to dry desiccant for reuse. Some folks place them in jacket under vehicle.
