Hello , and when my RV spent winters in Canada, I figured Oct 15th at the latest, drain all the tanks, by-pass H/W heater& drain, drain or blow out all the lines, hook up a pick-up tube, directly to the 12 pump and run RV-A/F through the system.Blow back through the supply tube to the fresh tank, and don't forget the city water hook up.
Draining/or blowing out the lines in the RV keeps the A/F stronger for better freeze up prevention.

You are probably safe if you have a period where it goes below freezing at night, but goes substantially above freezing in the day time. However, if you do not plan to use the RV for a long period that goes into freezing temperatures, it is always easier to do it when it is warm outside, so early October is not a bad time to get it done. That way you wont wake up in the middle of the night wondering if your water lines are going to freeze.

I agree With the rest of the poster's that posted on here for this forum but however it also depends on how much you use the coach and when you use it as for me I winterize fron thanksgving till about march 1st then I start using it really depends on the user and the type of season and weather falls in your area

I agree with everyone except Perry (That was my first thought too when I saw the post.)

Living in northern Mi, I did it when I knew I was not going to use it again. That may be Sept or Oct. This year we are planning to go to Fl early (early Dec instead of Feb). It would be nice if the weather held out that long, but that's wishful thinking here in the snow belt.
