Water, plumbing and sewer systems require winterization. Anywhere where you have a fluid that, when freezing, will expand and thereby burst, crack or otherwise damage their surroundings.

What you do is, in general, remove the relevant fluids from your coach if you store it in places where it freezes.

Check out my Monaco Diplomat manual here and look up page 139 for more detailed guidelines.

Rob Morgan's instructions are good. However, if you have a hydro-hot system, you must use anti-freeze (the pink stuff) to winterize. There was a technical release or an manual addendum that was on Monaco's web site a year or two ago. The problem is, it's impossible to completly blow out the water from the water heater loop of the hydro-hot system. Freezing of water in this loop can lead to some very expensive repairs.
