Old man winter is about to rear his ugly head. Are you ready? Temperatures are falling, which means it is more important than ever that you get your RV or boat winterized. This is one of the most basic parts of owning such expensive toys and will help ensure your toys last for years and years. Winterize, Winterize, Winterize!

If you’ve been holding off on winterizing your RV, now is the time to winterize.

Winterization serves several important purposes. First it drains your RV of any liquid, which prevents that from freezing. Freezing liquid in your tanks and pipes is a recipe for disaster, particularly around the spring time. You see, as pipes freeze they shrink and expand, which causes them to crack. The worst thing is coming back to your RV in the spring and finding a wet, sloppy mess that could have been prevented.

The second reason winterization is important is because it gives you the opportunity to inspect your RV, along with its plumbing to make sure everything is working right. After inspecting the “guts” of your RV you also have the chance to thoroughly inspect the outside of your RV. Look for cracks, scrapes, dents and anything else that might need to be repaired before the next RVing season resumes.

After inspecting your RV, it’s suggested that you give your RV a thorough cleaning – both inside and out. Scrub the outside, ensuring to remove all dirt and tar. Be sure to get your RV’s underbody as well. When left on for a long period of time dirt and tar can eat at your RV’s pain job. Cleaning the inside of your RV is super important, because it will dictate how you feel upon entering your RV in the spring. Vacuum, dust, and scrub every corner so you enter a fresh RV. If the weather is good try opening the windows to air your unit out.

Now, while you can take care of the cleaning and visual inspection, it’s very important that you let the professionals handle the actual winterization process.
