How do I winterize my RV?


It’s that time of year again where the warm camping season starts to end and you need to put the camper into storage. Soon everything outside of your kitchen window will start freeze over. Unless you live south in a warm climate or have a heated barn or you plan on using it frequently during the cold months, you will most likely need to winterize your RV. It would be a shame for spring to come and you find frozen and or damaged water lines as these are the most common problems related from not properly winterizing your RV. We use a checklist ourselves and thought why not put it for free on the site? Get it for free here.
