Winterization helps protect the RV's plumbing system and various other components against the harsh effects of freezing, expansion, and contraction. Neglecting winterization before storing your RV away can result in serious damage to its water lines.
The approach you choose for winterizing your RV will depend on various factors, including your storage location (indoors, outdoors, or at a storage facility) and your region’s climate during storage. Routinely, winterization involves preparing your RV’s water system, adding antifreeze to the pipes, removing the batteries, sealing cracks and seams, cleaning the awnings, and covering the RV’s wheels.
