new england winter storage
as many of you new england riders out there hate to pack it up when the leaves start falling, we have to do it. so i was wondering how any of you leave them sitting outside all winter?
on/ off the trailer?
shrink wrap or regular cover?
tires off the trailer and support with wood block?
What about snow weight? should i build a small wooden structure and put a tarp over it. Money is slim right now as i am sure it is for most of us, but i just wanted to know if anyone had any tricks out there that could help?

I used to keep my ski inside a heated barn - not so lucky this year.
That said, I'll definatley keep it on my trailer with my Sea Doo cover on it. I think the best place to keep it this winter (for me) would be under the deck, it'll be some what protected from the outside elements.
As usual, I'll fog the engine, fill the gas tank and put some gas stabilizer and pour some RV antifreeze inside the engine block.
Hope this helps.

Ive stored outdoors for years with no issues. Factory cover, on trailer with tires inflated. When snow gets about a foot ill brush it off.
follow proper storage proceedures.
ADD: when storing I insert a stainless steel pot scruber(kitchen supply store) in the exhaust opening to keep critters out. also good in the drain holes.
