Bringing out the RV after having stored it for awhile can bring you some unwelcome surprises particularly inside the refrigerator.  Nasty, mold and mildew.  One of our neighbors here at Pismo Coast Village gave us a great tip. Before you shut the fridge door for awhile, prepare a solution, that is two tablespoons of bleach in two to three quarts of water.  Then, wipe down every inch of the refrigerator with the solution.  Once done and dry go back in and wipe it down again, drying completely, with a clean cloth.  Bleach reportedly keeps away that mold and mildew that will build up if you don't treat it.  Our neighbor also takes all the plastic shelves out and stores them outside the refrigerator. Mold and mildew particularly love plastic.  We researched this tip extensively and it's true..bleach is the ban of that fungus that loves that dark refrigerator.
