First winter

This is my first winter with the RV. I winterized the rv as per owners manual.
My question is, what household items I have on the rv should be removed or can be left in it ? Such as cooking oil and cleaning products

Thanks Lou.

PS: I have noticed saying the DW this and the DW that . What or who is DW

I remove all foods, all liquids, all paper products. Basically leave only
dishes, pots & pans. We do leave linens, cleaned and sealed in space
packs or plastic bins. We are in the northeast, and put the coach
away for 5 months.

It depends on where you are. For us and temps getting well below zero, all liquids, sprays, most food come out any thing that could get damaged if frozen, extra cloths and dog food for the girls.. Being that the MH is our emergency shelter we leave dried foods, cloths and some other items , just in case. Our MH is parked under the car port next to my shop and is plugged in. The propane tank is full as is the diesel fuel tank. We wait until winter grade fuel is at the pumps before we top off the tank.

If you have freezing temperatures, remove anything that can be damaged y freezing. Remove all food. Little rodents look for a warmer place and any food source.
