Should I winterize my coach for Arkansas Indoor storage

I'm going to store my motorhome from mid-October to January 1st in Hot Springs, Arkansas. I have reserved a 44' X 14' indoor storage unit with electricity. Is it ok to just leave the motorhome plugged in with no one there to check on it? Is it ok to leave the thermostat set at, say 45 degrees, so the furnaces will fire up if necessary? Should I just winterize the coach and leave it plugged in or winterize it and not use the electricity?
Lotsa questions, but right now, I'm feeling lotsa dumb.

Another question. Is there a good reliable RV Dealer in or near Hot Springs who could winterize my coach?

If you get a verizon home connect box with service for $19.99 /mo. And a sensaphone 400, the motorhome will call you if there is a power failure, or the temperature goes above or below the temp you specify. You can even call in at any time, and the unit will speak to you in a computer generated voice, and tell you the temperature, power status, etc.

Got this same setup in a vacation home....works great and the peace of mind is invaluable.
