What to take of the RV out to avoid freezing?

Hi,
I do not typically winterize our RV, because we like to use it all year long. At least, we like to have it prepared for some short trips, whenever there's an opportunity.

But sometimes, there is no opportunity for several weeks. If it happens to freeze, eventually everything in the RV reaches temperaturs below 32F.

What do I have to take out and bring it to a frost-save place? My Nespresso machine is one thing, I take out first. But what else? What about the fully equipped bathroom? What about electronic stuff?

Peter

Simply anything you look at and say to yourself......, will this freeze and if the answer is yes.........haul it out. Your electronics things are ok. just anything that will freeze and break.

At some point you must winterize to prevent plumbing breaks. They are extremely expensive to repair. It is far more than a coffee maker at risk.

Canned foods that are liquid or bathed in liquid; liquid detergents often can freeze, toothpaste and such. Pretty much anything that doesn't have alcohol in it, and even that if the percentage is tiny.

But what about the RV water system? Pipes, drains, tanks, etc.? It freezes too, and the damage can be hard to get at for repair.
