Winterization sticky?

I guess this post is more for the admins, but as this is my first year that I'll have to winterize my RV (moved up north), I'm starting to hunt around for posts on how to winterize. There's so much to do, with the regular water system, dishwasher, and a laundry machine.

Has anyone thought to create a single repository post for instructions, links to videos, and tips & tricks for how to winterize (and de-winterize) these complicated machines?

I, for one, would love to have a single go-to post to read up on stuff!!

Not necessarily. I have very reliable power where I store my coach. I place two trouble lights, each with a 60 watt bulb, in every appliance/facility that needs winterizing. Been doing it 10 years without a problem.

Lucky you!! I never had to winterize when I lived in TX, also with an enclosed storage facility and electricity. Unfortunately, now that I live near Ann Arbor, MI, I am unable to locate any storage facility like this. It's easy to find outdoor gravel or blacktop parking spaces behind a chain link fence, but nobody up here is doing "big rig" indoor storage. And believe me, I've searched wide and far!

My storage facility is at a boat dealer...mostly boats, but a dozen or so big RV storage spaces. You might check there.
