do I need to Winterize?

Looking at leaving the RV sit until Christmas week. Then we are heading out to vacation.
The temps here in Atlanta should be right at freezing or just below.
I would rather not have to winterize just to undo it in a month.
I have shore power where I am parked. Would it be OK just to put a space heater in?
What do you guys recommend?

Thanks

IMHO you should be fine with a space heater.

I'd think also that a space heater set on a low temperature should be fine. Also, perhaps a 75 -100 watt light bulb in the wet bay to keep things cozy there. In the future, you might invest in a cap for the water fill that has a air fitting in it. That way you can blow out the water lines and not have to mess with RV antifreeze and flush to recommission. Don't forget to leave cabinet doors under sinks open to allow heat into those spaces.
