I would like to winterize my trailer which I bought this summer with a leaky water heater which the previous owner disconnected(bypassed). Can I still winterize the water lines/etc. and not winterize the water heater (which hasn't been used for a while)? I didn't plan on paying for the heater to be reconditoned or a new one yet. Also I didn't plan on storing the trailer in a building (I would do it in a heart beat if the opportunity came around). It will be outside in my yard...should I put a tarp over it during the winter? I've heard this can cause issue with the finish & paint. At least should I cover the rooftop AC unit? Any quick advise on steps to winterize this unit?
Any advice is always appreciated. Thanks in advance!
