Winterizing & Un-Winterizing

We're in Myrtle Beach, SC (at Briarcliffe RV Resort, nice place). We're going to have our Coach winterized at Camping World and put in storage here in Myrtle Beach until January 1st. Since I've never gone through this winterization thing before, I have no idea about what I have to do to un-winterize when we pick the coach up and head for Florida in January.
What do I need to do to un-winterize?

First, check your operator's manual to see what is required. Next Camping World uses a check list to winterize RV's. Review that list to see what might need to be reconnected, such as connections to the water pump,or possibly the ice maker if your refrigerator is so equipped. They will drain the water heater and may leave the drain open. I think that Camping World would be happy to provide the de-winterization checklist.

Thank you, vraines. Unfortunately, I bought the Coach used and don't have a complete Owner's Manual. But, I'm sure that Camping World Service can explain all of that to me. Thanks for that suggestion.

You might want to ask Camping World if dewinterizing is part of the winterizing package, or what they might charge to do it for you. My dealer includes it in the cost and then he pressure tests the entire system to make sure there are no leaks. Once you are more familiar with the coach you'll feel more comfortable about doing it yourself.

If you have it done at CW, they might use the pink antifreeze and circulate it through the fresh water system. I hate that stuff. Used it once but never again. Far too much taste after de-winterizing for me. Even after flushing 2-3 times.

Check that they're going to blow out the lines rather then using the pink stuff.
