After the Trip

I just returned from a 3000+ mile trip and will not be using the MH until after the holidays. I would appreciate advice on what to do or not to do in storing the MH for the next few months. I have a 36 foot F-53 Ford V10 with two slides. The MH will be stored in my back yard on a gravel pad. I live in
N. Texas.

Run the engine once a month till it gets to its normal temperature, run the generator for an hour as well. Drive it once a month if you can for 10-20 miles. Drain the grey and black water tanks then clean them as best you can. If it freezes in north texas then winterize by draining the water out of the fresh water plumbing system and replace with the type of antifreeze you buy in a RV store and not automotive anti freeze. Keep up with the maintenance that is requested in the owners manual. That should do it. If you are really looking for something to do then wax it.
