de-winerizing georgetown 350 and slide locks

We bought a 2012 georgetown 350 at the end of the year and had it winterized and put in storage before we could use it. Since this is April we were wondering would it be okay to de-winterize it now. We live outside Pittsburgh Pa and the weather still gets around freezing at night sometimes and we do not want do anything that would hurt the motorhome. Also is there any side locks on the 3 slides. I do not remember anyone saying anything about it. Any help would be a bing help to us. We have a georgetown 350f,v10 and 5 speed transmission if that helps.

There is no locks on the slide outs, should be ok to dewinterize the coach now as long as the days are above freezing. Good luck with your new coach.

My Georgetown has been dewinterized for about a month, and used often.

Hey bojack, congrats on the new Georgetown 350 and to the Forums. I'm getting my coach ready to start the season today. You should be ok to dewinterize, but if the weather should change where the temps are going to stay below freezing you may want to keep a small heater plugged in and cabinets open. Doubt it's going to happen but Mother Nature has a weird sense of humor. She thinks it's supposed to rain every time we go camping. If we can help with anything else please ask. Enjoy your Georgetown and most importantly Be Safe.

My 350 came with slide locks, but they are very rudimentary and are just a metal pole with a rubber stopper on each end. You are supposed to wedge it in between the edge of the slide and the body. Regardless, make sure there is nothing that could get wedged between the slide and the edge of the coach when it goes out. I made the mistake of having my owners manual on the floor and it snapped the molding right in two as it got squeezed between the slide and the side of the coach. They are hydraulic slides so they move fast and nothing is stopping them without breaking something!
