How to Winterize & Store Your RV
Discover how easy it is to properly winterize your RV and put it in short or long term storage. Protect your investment with these easy to follow steps. After all, you want to keep the RV as long as possible and ensure that everything remains in working order.
To that end, we suggest this informative video from our partners at RV Education 101.
Mark Polk, the owner, has produced a series of educational videos to encourage RVing safety and enjoyment.
Think about how much your RV dealer or a service center might charge to winterize your RV. And have you ever had a chance to take an RV trip, but turned down the opportunity because you didn’t want to pay to have it done again? Do you know what to do to put the RV in storage until next spring? This DVD provides the step-by-step instructions for how to safely do all of this yourself.
With this “Winterizing and Storing your RV” video/DVD you will no longer have to pay to have your RV prepared for cold weather or cancel trips because the RV is already set for hibernation.
Anybody can easily prep and store their RV by following the simple step-by-step hands on instruction. Mark Polk, the host of this video, demonstrates the easiest and most effective way to go through the process.
First he explains how an RV water system works. He demonstrates how to install a water heater bypass kit to save six gallons of antifreeze, and walks you through the steps on how to evacuate all of the water from the RV. With that done, you are shown how easy it is to add the non-toxic antifreeze to the water system. Armed with the right instruction, you will see just how simple it really is. And once you have a properly winterized rig, there is no need to worry about expensive repairs next spring when you take it out of storage. Polk explains that a frozen water heater tank that bursts can add up to a $500 repair bill.
These steps protect the RVs water system, but what about the tires, batteries, generator and other components? All of these could be damaged if they are not properly prepared for short or long term storage. Polk breaks the RV into two separate categories, the chassis and the coach, and walks you through every step required to protect your investment while it is stored. He discusses the “do’s and don’ts” about storing batteries, tires, how to protect the interior and exterior of the RV, fuel preservatives, roof maintenance, sealants, ventilation and much, much more. Along with the video you will receive a printed checklist to use so you won’t miss any steps.
The cost of this lesson is nothing compared to the hundreds of dollars it can save you when you know what steps to take to protect your RVs water system and other major components.
