Question Winter Prep

Not really a Palomino ?, but that is what I have and the Winterizing forum won't allow posts. Skipping all of the plumbing issues for winterizing in northern NE, what do you do to prep your trailer for winter. What comes out, what stays in? What do you wrap and seal? What are your favorite mouse repellents? Do you wash/wax now or in the Spring? What else am I missing?

I drain the WH and put on bypass then blow out all water lines with compressed air.(don't forget the outside faucets). Next pour a few ounces of rv antifreeze in each drain.
Empty the fridge and freezer and prop open the doors.
Remove anything that can freeze from the cabinets and any food stuff that might draw rodents.
We then put dryer sheets in every drawer and every cabinet.

I wash and wax the exterior then cover the whole trailer including the tires.

Have not had an issue with vermin, yet.
