Rudi,

If storing diesel for 3 months in winter or 2 in summer, add a BIOCIDE, such as Biobor JF.  If temperatures will get below freezing and you have summer grade (i.e. #2 diesel) fuel, add an anti-gel.  Walmart carries the PS brand.

Be sure to drive the coach and run the generator after adding them.

And, unless you can drive a minimum of 25 highway miles, do NOT start the engine.  Said another way, if you can't get the oil, not just coolant up to operating temperature, starting the engine just adds moisture to the crankcase.

Welcome to the forum as Wolf 10 said add some  BIOCIDE. Diesel clean now has a biocide.
