Preparing Your Automotive Components for Winter

Getting the automotive parts of your RV winterized mostly pertains to replacing your current coolant with antifreeze. Keep in mind that they sell special antifreeze for RVs, and this is sometimes sold as “RV/Marine” antifreeze. If you’re wondering which of these fluids is best for your RV, we suggest you check your owner’s manual.

Preparing Your Home Components for Winter

As for the “home” part of your RV, the most important part of winterizing your RV is taking care of the plumbing. Be sure to drain your black and gray tanks, but not before you remove the water filters for sending antifreeze through your Burns Lake RV. Drain the hot water heater, but only after you’ve let the water cool. Drain all the water from your RV, then run antifreeze through the lines to ensure that it’s permeated the entire plumbing system. This will ensure that your plumbing doesn’t freeze up during those winter months.
