Winterizing 2012 Windjammer

Just purchase a new 2012 Windjammer. The dealer de-winterized during the check-out. The weather here in Charlotte has been mild all winter..It has been the low to mid 30s at night and up to 60s during the day . Should I winterize the trailer again. I was thinking since I keep the trailer plugged into the house current. If I keep the Main thermostat at he lowest temp and turn on the tank heater. Would that keep the pipes from freezing, should the temp fall below the freezing point. If the weather stays the way it is I may take my new toy out for a couple days the end of Feb. Want to be safe. But a lot of trouble to go back and forth.

has any water been added to it since they de-winterized it ? if not your good .
do what you want but it would take days of below 20 degrees to freeze anything that would do harm just open all doors where there is a water trap . and leave heater on lowest setting like you say.
you could just dump water down the traps to also be safe . you would only be at risk on your water lines .

Agree w/ Turbo. If you had a concern you could just blow out the water lines rather than using RV antifreeze. Do remove the outside shower head just to be safe.

Welcome to the Windjammer family. Hope you enjoy the trailer. I think you're safe as well as to not winterizing as long as you follow the suggestions above.
