Dewinterizing Checklist. Am I Missing Anything?

Pammi and I are taking our TT out the first weekend in March to air it out and get back into the swing of things. I know I need to
-Flush the plumbing
-Un-bypass the water heater after flushing the lines
-Check the tire pressure and torque on the lug nuts
-Reinstall the anode tube in the water heater
-Wash it

Am I forgetting anything?
Thanks in advance!

Thanks, but I'm an ARMY vet! I really did hang up on the Navy recruiter back in '79!

Quick run thru similar to PDI. Check water heater on both modes, heat and A/C, fridge running ok in all modes, then all the stuff to be carried in that was carried out.

Check that all heaters,ac units, water heater etc are operational. Check tire pressure, oil levels, and water level in batteries.

Now if

Now if you're just doing a weekend and can get away with a case of bottled water or two and don't really need to de-winterize I would leave all that alone. Then if we have another cold snap you don't have worries.

I also sanitize entire water system with the 1/4 bleach to 15 gallons of water, clean a/c filters if not done at the end of the previous season, check systems including batteries fully charged, and replace batteries in remotes/fire alarm, etc. that are removed when winterizing.

It's a quick 2 night weekend trip, so we'll probably eat out mostly.
And the 2 short dogs would NEVER let me forget Pammi! Pammi either!
Also, all our god kids call me Grumpy!
