If you don't need to use the system yet I'd wait if it were mine. Here in Ohio I've not de-winterized yet even though we have temps hi/lo of 65/32 for the next week. Nonetheless, I just know for sure that Mother Nature isn't done with sending us a few 20 nights yet. :-)

Hope it warms up some, got our first outing the 19th of April in northwest Iowa. At lease we got it out of storage and got the coach parked at home and plug in and getting her cleaned for that first outing. Do not like that first trip to the store to get the grocery and liquor to restock.

Yep has been a long winter. Got to take the first grocery bill and average it across the rest of the season - makes me feel better anyway. Looks like April 19-20 will be our first outing this year. Packing sweatshirts and plenty of firewood.
