Prepare Your RV for Winter

Overnight stay in the motor home with a beautiful winter landscape.

As fall gently ushers in winter’s chill, it’s time for RV owners to shift gears and ensure their mobile homes are snugly tucked away from the cold. Freedom Storage is here to simplify the process with a straightforward guide, helping you navigate the essentials of RV winterization. Whether you’re prepping for storage or contemplating winter camping adventures, our RV tips are designed to help keep your vehicle in top shape.

RV Winterization: More Than Just Parking

Beyond finding a parking spot, winterizing your RV is about protecting your investment. Let’s breakdown the must-do steps to preserve your plumbing, electrical system, interior, and exterior, ensuring your RV is ready for action when warmer days return.

1. RV Maintenance for Plumbing and Electrical Systems

Start by giving your RV’s plumbing and electrical systems some love. Drain those water lines to prevent freezing, and don’t forget the RV-friendly antifreeze to ward off potential damage. Disconnect the battery and store it separately to keep it juiced up. These small tasks add up, ensuring your RV is ready for the road when winter is over.

2. Interior and Exterior Care

Imagine giving your RV a warm winter jacket. That’s what sealing potential entry points for critters and investing in a quality RV cover does. It’s not just about appearances. It’s about preserving your RV’s structural integrity. You can use weather stripping on the interior of your windows to make sure no cold air can get inside, and if you plan to use your RV this winter, consider laying blankets or covers on the floor and furniture for an added layer of warmth and protection.

Finally, ensure proper ventilation while sealing entry points. Condensation can build up inside your RV during the winter, leading to potential mold issues, so use vent covers to promote airflow while keeping out the elements.
