Winterizing TT

I am sure when I sold the trailer the winter cover helped to preserve it's value.
Did you keep your TT at home in the winter months? And aside from using the cover for it, and winterizing, did you leave anything on in TT like the furnace or anything to help w/moisture and the like? We are in Northern part of NY. Deciding on how what to do about storing it for winter. Pay someone to store it in an enclosed barn or keep it home in driveway(we have plenty of room here)outside in snow. Don't know what to do yet, but we need to decide quickly enough before next month. Thanks for any suggestions.

We just bought our first NEW trailer, so I bought a cover hoping to keep it looking good as long as I can. My question is that I have 2 MaxAir vent covers, should I keep the vents cracked open or should I close everything up tight. Where I live the winters are very cold and humidity is very low.

In response to annamarie,

I kept the trailer at home. The trailer was equipped with 2 Max-air vents which were always kept open (365 days of the year). I had no problems whatsoever involving moisture and in fact the trailer always had a fresh smell. I took no special precautions for the snow load even with the exceptional snowfalls we sometimes get in Eastern Ontario. I sold the trailer recently and it was in amazing shape. We currently have a Class A Georgetown on order and I plan on getting a cover for it as well.

Just picked up a cover for our Roo this past Tuesday night. Got the deal of the century - FREE! Cover looks NEW... like it's not been used.

A friend had it and couldn't use it on their new RV so they offered it to me. Didn't take me long to take them up on that offer!
