Winter storage need help/ideas

Well it looks like my only option on storage this year for winter is going to be in an enclosed warehouse that is not heated. I do plan on using the coach intermittent in the winter. Should I winterize it? Do I just need to drain tanks and perhaps add a little antifreeze to the lines? Where is the best place to find a list for storing/winterization? I won't have access to power other than battery charger so heating anything is out. My climate is Louisville,ky so we do get hard freezes.

Thanks for any help!

Gershwin...I live in Louisville too.... I do minimal winterizing and you might just use a halogen 75W lamp in the two water areas of the coach as I do. I by pass the hotwater tank and drain it (plug out) Plus I have a Pelonis ceramic disc heater I use on the interior, Pelonis Disc Furnaces I use the HC 461 ....it is set at 50F and can keep a bathroom and kitchen area from freezing. Remember to keep cabinets open to allow warm air inside....

Do you have 120v at the storage warehouse? If so, plug in and turn the heat down low. My rig has a heater in the water area. If you have that turn it on. You don't really need much else.

Thx for the info. stinnett says they can do for $99. Sounds like a good idea. The storage location will only provide me with battery charger power.

Gershwin...Stinnet will winterize you for $99? Ehhhhh... You and I can do it for $8. It takes me all of 20 min to winterize the water closet, sinks, tub, water tank, etc. There is currently a sale on RV Antifreeze at Walmart, Advanced Auto, Auto Zone....Now I also clean and prep my frig... i place dust covers on my furniture...and some other things but you are thinking that you will be using this RV at times....I use mine all winter too... so light winterization is all it gets.
