Winterize or not

We are going to be storing our Winnie indoors this winter and the storage facility is heated. Should we still winterize it as if it were going to be sitting outside all winter? Also, we want to take it on a couple winter trips down south, how would we be ok in not winterizing for the amount of time it will take to get south enough to warmer climates?

Cheers

John and judy

Blowing out the water with compressed air only takes five minuites. Then you can feel safe in your heated facility and travel in winter to a milder climate. When you reach a non freezing location at a rv park, just fill your water tank, water heater and lines

If the heat went out in the storage place, you would feel much safer if the tanks were drained and the water lines blown out. Doesn't take much time or effort if you have access to a compressor.

How do you address the clothes washer with air?
