Advice Sought for Winter Storage / Cleaning

Hi Everyone

First post, so bear with me.

My wife and I have been tent camping with the kids for a few years, but tomorrow we're picking up our first travel trailer: '78 Tradewind. Needless to say we're pretty excited about it!

We plan on digging into it and getting it ready for spring as soon as we can and I'd like to know if there is there anything we should be aware of or mindful of as we're giving it a thorough cleaning on the days that it's warm enough to do so. (Last February's average temp was 7 degrees!)

Your thoughts and input are appreciated and I'm certain there will be more questions to come until I get the hang of the search function.

Thanks in advance,

It's nothing but a house on wheels. For the most part the same things that work in your home will work. A diluted bleach solution will handle most any disinfecting needs. The rest will be the workhorse cleaners that you use at home.
