Winter maintenance

Newbie ready for winter and no more travels for a while. Had the dealer winterize and was wondering what other maintenance I should be doing. Read posts about running the generator every so often, but any other advice you could give to keep her ready for spring would be great! Thanks for your help.

Charge the batteries once per month is the only thing I do.

Buy a battery tender if you don't already keep your Rv plugged in to shore power.

If it is at home and you live in a humid area, buy a large dehumidifier and run itn24/7

I open the cabinet doors and drawers, prop open the fridge doors, operate the slides. Once a month I drive the unit just to rotate things a bit. On sunny weekends I open my storage compartments for airing things out. Even with winterizing, I still use the furnace or space heater if it gets very cold.

Another newbie here. I live in a cold climate, do you suggest Erving the batteries to a warmer place? Do you just charge till fully charged and then just let them discharge over time before recharging?
Many thanks.
