Winterize or plug in Aspire?

I am about to pick up our new Aspire DLQ. We live in Wyoming and the temp is and will be in the freezing range. Should I have the dealership winterize the coach or leave it plugged in and let the coach heat keep it warm? Anyone winterize the Aspire on their own?

Winterize ! Power failure could RUIN a new coach. See if the dealer will let you follow the tech through as he does the job.

Our climate is much milder than yours and our coach is stored inside, so I partially winterize and heat as needed. We do this so that we can move into it if we have an emergency like an extended power outage. We can also bug out if we had to. It payed off a couple years ago when our house flooded from a broken water filter. We fired up the coach fridge and moved in. With the kind of temps you experience, full winterize would be the safest and least cost alternative unless you can monitor it regularly.

Thank you! Contacted the dealer today and told them to winterize. No surprises in the spring.
