We just winterize and I run down once a month and run the coach and generator during the off season.

We use damp rid for the moisture issues. Works very well!

I live in East Texas so bad freezes aren't usually a problem although we do get freezing temps for a few days at a stretch. I didn't winterize mine. I drained everything and put an oil filled radiator in there on a low setting. I also opened the bathroom door and all the drawers and cupboards that I could. It keeps the chill off.

Also, before I bring it home after a trip I fill the gas tank and add Stab-il. I'm not a fanatic about it but I start and run the engine about once a month and run the generator with a load on it. If I'm in the mood I also put it in gear and roll it backwards and forwards about 10' or 15'. I don't really have a good reason for doing it but I've the clutch plates stick on farm equipment if they sit for a long time.

We don't keep a heater running, but we do go out at least once a month to do a quick "critter check"

also...Sometimes we will run the furnace and bring the rig up to temperature, but I don't have a good reason to do this other them maybe we just like being in there.

For moisture, this year we started using Damp Rid Moisture Absorbing bags. Maybe we'll see in the spring if we did any good!
