Would you still winterize if pup stays in garage

I have a 2007 Rockwood Freedom model 2280 tent trailer..
I have it in the garage thats built into the house.. it never gets below 45 ..50 degrees..
I just got back from hunting with it and plan on camping in March or asap..
So Would You Winterize It .?
White water tank has water in it ..
Havent used hot water heater but bet it has water in it ..
Cassette type toilet has water in it but black tank is empty and clean..

We winterize our power washer and garden sprayer that are kept in our attached finished garage here in NW Ohio just to be safe

I would just drain the water heater and open the low point drains. you should be good. if you get a cold snap you could always put a heater in it.

In case your power goes off an ounce of prevention could save a lot of headaches

Since you live West of the Cascades and near Portland, I think you'll be fine. But I would drain the WH, FW tank, low point drains and blow out the water lines.

If you are done using it for the season why not winterize and not have to wonder or worry.

Why would you winterize if it never gets to freezing or below. And if it does it will only be for a few hrs. I would drain the tanks just because i wouldn't want it to start getting moldy. But to fully winterize is a waste. I'm in central valley California trailer stored outside. I've never winterized even if it gets below freezing at night. It doesn't stay cold enough long enough to worry about it

".. it never gets below 45 ..50 degrees.."

Last time I checked water freezes at 32 degrees. Why on earth would you if what you say is true?

As a lot of people have written, I'd drain the tanks. It is always usefull to clean out the hot water tank each year. I also park my RV inside, but I use an oil filled heater during cold spells (like tonight). I also cut a hole in the panel next to the water pump to let warm inside air circulate around the pump.
