My winterization this year consisted of building a new shop with radiant heated floors generated by our Geothermal well. Much easier.

No, I have to disagree. I find winterizing my RV a lot easier then putting up a building and pouring a concrete floor.

You will love the radiant heat. That is how I heat my home. I will never want to go back to force air again.

Yeah, our house is all concrete floors with hot water flowing through pex tubing and there is nothing like it. It can be -10 outside and you are in shorts inside and it costs nothing. I figured since I was building my baby a shop and the hot water is free I would heat it as well.

I work inside out. Completely clean inside, empty cupboards, use about a half box of fabric softener sheets everywhere, open a tub of a dessicant (damp rid) and then proceed to the outside. There I blow out the water lines, dump and flush the tanks and water heater, run pink stuff through the lines and blow that out also (just in case there is a spot that won't blow clear of water). Then the rest of the box of fabric sheets goes into the various basement hatches. Lastly, it is washed and stored. It stays inside the storage facility for 5 months and is unaccessable so I remove batteries and take them back home for servicing and charging for the winter.
