During the summer months My trailer reaches tempatures of over 100 degrees during the day, and cools down at night when not in use. I keep spare food in the cabinets (soup, canned beans, veggies, chips, etc, etc) I am beginning to think that the food is getting cooked every day, That can not be good for the food, or whoever eats it. What do you do, leave food in trailers or take it all out every time?

I don't think it's a good idea to leave any edibles in a hot trailer.We store our trailer in a shed when not in use,so,we can't keep the air on.so we open windows and vents and leave it.However,I do not keep any food items in there.I believe that  rats/mice/bugs can always find ways in there,there are pipes and openings,after all and I just don't like the thought of it.

I keep canned food (soup, pop, beer) and some packaged food (breakfast bars, top ramen soup, chips/snacks) in my trailer but nothing that isn't sealed.   I have left vitamins in the trailer that got a little funky looking (bloated, changed shape) in extended periods of hot weather so threw them out.  I do take all the packaged, not canned stuff out at the end of the show season and restock at the beginning of the next season.

Being in the Restaurant business, I would definately say that you should remove canned goods from your trailer in the dead heat of summer or the freezes of winter.  Food in cans will expand in the heat and can actually "cook".  Since it can't be immediately refridgerated, I'd say you're taking a risk of getting botulism.  Nothing worse than throwing up at a trail ride!

Isn't botulism something that is canned iside to begin with?Like the stew they recalled.

I have left canned goods in trailers in Arizona when it was 115, with no bad results.However canned beverages tend to explode.Might check mythbusters for their test.

We rotate out our canned goods and take out any thing that is not hard packaged, cans or bottles.

Ever think about the food in the trailer that travel the highway to and from the packers?

Oh, by the way.  We had 15 consecutive days of temperature over 100 degrees.  ALL food in my trailer went to the trash!

I leave all canned food, slimfast bars, unopened bottles and cans in the trailer all season.  I throw out at winterizing time and throw out.  I also leave individual apple sauce-fruit cups in all season. Most of the rides I go on provide food.  This is just food I might eat.  If they have no food, I buy fresh bread, lunch meat ect.  I;'m No Cook

Yes, botulisim is caused by a bacteria (clostridium botulinum) that is trapped in the food during the canning process...not caused by heat exposure.

I don't profess to be a food storage expert,and,for the real information,I suppose one could contact the FDA,Center for Disease COntrol,or whatever to find out just what kinds of bacteria,and how they form,and under what conditions,ect.

But I DO know that: the label on soup cans states: store at ROOM temperature unopened."

Most of us don't reside in rooms that are close to 105-110 degrees for days at a time,do we?

Those of you that feel comfortable keeping food in a hot trailer,for a number of weeks or whatever,can do so.I myself won't do it.I have experienced a staph infection before from food that has been kept at an improper temperature,and let me tell you,I don't intend to do anything to risk that experience ever again.

I was thinking if canned foods would suffice and would last long but thanks to some advice I wouldn't take such risk.

Don't leave water bottles because it can leach carcinogens if they heat up.
