Winter is just around the corner which means it’s time to hunker down until RV season comes around again. Before you store your RV for winter, you must winterize it in order to avoid maintenance issues come spring.

Here are the top 4 reasons why you should winterize your RV this year:


1. Avoid Water Lines Bursting

If you leave water in the pipes of your RV during winter and it freezes, you could be looking at big trouble, and not to mention costly repairs. That’s why it’s necessary to go through the proper draining of all fluids and to use special RV antifreeze.

2. Preserve Your RV Battery Life

Leaving your RV battery out in the cold is never a good idea. The battery will freeze if it discharges too much. The best way to ensure your battery will not be damaged is by removing any battery and keeping it in a separate place.

3. Keep Furry Creatures Out

It’s important to shield the exterior to protect your interior from any unwanted four-legged creatures. You must properly seal your camper and get rid of all food and trash to avoid an unwanted surprise come spring.

4. Protect Your RV’s Tires

The cold weather can cause damage to your tires if you don’t take preventative action. Proper inflation, removing weight from inside your RV, and lifting it slightly for greater weight reduction can help minimize any adverse effects.

Winterize your vehicle now to make your preparation in the spring much easier! Skip waiting around to fix your RV this spring because you didn’t do the proper preventative maintenance now.
