Top 5 Things You Need for Winter RV Storage

Unless you live in a southern climate where it never freezes, or have heated storage, or you plan on using it frequently during the cooler months, you will most likely need to winterize your RV.

I tend to wait until the last minute to winterize my RV, as I always hope for just one last trip before it’s too cold.  So, I put together the 5 bare minimum things you’ll need to prep your RV for winter storage.

Here are the 5 items you NEED to get before winter, unless you already have it all… then go you.

  1. Get Some Non-toxic RV/Marine antifreeze(Should be a red/pink color).
  2. A wand to clean out the black-water holding tank, if the motorhome doesn’t have a built-in clean out system.
  3. A water heater bypass kit, if your RV doesn’t have one installed.
  4. A water pump converter kit, or tubing to connect to the inlet side of the water pump.
  5. Basic hand tools to remove and install drain plugs.

How do I use all of this? Check out our checklist for Winterizing your Motorized or Towable RV
