    The CarJacket zips and seals around your vehicle and seals. It protects from rust, corrosion, moisture, dust, dirt, and insects. After weeks or months of storage, your vehicle will come out as pristine as it went in.
    Car Length up to 189", Car Width 115", Heigth 120"

    Your vehicle must be dry before put into the jacket
    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 carjacket.
    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.
    Store your vehicle during low humidity whenever possible. Mid-afternoon on a dry day is best
    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.
    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.

If you're not going to take the battery out, I would make an extension charge cable and slip it through a small slit in the bottom of the jacket and seal with silicone. Then the charger remains on the outside where you have control. Attach the connectors after running the wire through to keep the minimum hole size. Connectors can be found at auto supply stores. I've used extensions on three of my chargers and it doesn't affect the charge.
    Better be safe than sorry, two friends had mold. 328 stunk and was so bad it had to be towed. 360 similar problem.
