It doesn't exist. Unfortunately, you get to learn by doing.

Do you have any winterizing valves? I have one that changes my water pump from drawing in from the freshwater tank to an external hose connection. I change it to the external connection and put a piece of hose into antifreeze.

Regarding your water heater, although you don't have to empty it if you'll be keeping the tank warm, you should be draining and cleaning it periodically so this might be an ideal time to do that. You'll need one of these.

If you have a Suburban WH, you'll need to check the anode periodically, too.

Unnecessary, especially if you're gonna be residing in the RV and heating it. Your fresh water supply may require some consideration but unless the daytime temps are consistently well below freezing, you should be fine.
