Explorer winterizing

I am ready to order an Isata 5 28ss with the explorer package. Do I need to winterize it if it sits on my drive for a week between trips if it is on shore power? Is draining the tanks enough or even necessary? We will base out of Colorado Springs

future Isata 5 w/ explorer pkg

That depends on what the temperature will be while it’s sitting for a week. Not much of a concern in the summer but could be problematic in the winter. If you plan on using the rig in the winter you may want to invest in a small air compressor to blow out the water system rather than going through a lot of antifreeze, although you’ll still need some for P-traps and such. There are some good videos on YouTube showing how to winterize with air.
