This is my first winter with our first RV. I've got a 2017 FR3, we live in Salt Lake City, Ut area. So my question is this: I'm not ready to winterize it yet as we'll be using it on 3 different occasions over the next 5 weeks. If I kept it in my driveway and plugged in with the furnace set on low will I be safe not flushing the water system etc? Or is there more I'd need to do without the whole winterizing it yet?

We did that last year and it worked fine. We also turn on the water heater to help add additional radiant heat to warm up the tank compartment. We'll do that till after Xmas break, then winterize it for a couple months afterwards. And might repeat in the spring when we're a bit anxious for the camping season to start again.

X2 with the water heater, I did that over a winter with my class A without problems, the furnace will keep the basement warm, I did leave the cabinet doors open where water lines came to sinks to ensure warm air got in there
