Re: Inflatable storage
I don't have any official dogma on this, but I would suggest that you leave it inflated enough to stretch out any wrinkles, cover it to keep crap from settling on it, and if it is a PVC material, rub it down with Armor-All or some other protective coating.
If left deflated and "compressed", folds in the rubbing strake and other glued on bits can lead to separation.
Good luck with it.
