Thanks for all the comments! I think I have a much better idea of what to do for me and my AS. I keep mine at home so I will make preparations on the nights it is going to get cold or freeze.

In Dallas…yes. Lucille, the AS, is tucked way at storage properly winterized. We didn't want to risk it. We plan to take her out at the end of February until early March so that will likely spark a dilemma as to should we re-winterize her. Time will give us a better answer to that question. We find it is much safer to winterize and then redo it, if necessary, after a usage than to run the risk of damage.

Hi, from Southern California and never winterized. Park trailer in driveway, connect battery maintainer, and hose off trailer randomly. That's it. Now in Oregon, winterized for second time.

It's been down below freezing where our trailer is stored in the high desert if SoCal. Wish I could parking it in a warmer location, but we winterized and keep a small heater inside to boot.

Running furnace in the AS along with electric heater at the rear of the hallway... I run the electric at 61 and the furnace at 64 degrees... so, the electric adds a little help and the furnace doesn't work as hard. It was 24 degrees this morning thanks to global warming...

Since we are now seeing major changes in weather patterns and severity of storms, perhaps the proper phrase is climate change rather than global warming?

The weather people tell us that the average last freeze here in the DFW area is around the third week in March. Now, that's an average and this is Texas weather we're talking about--only thing consistent is that it's going to change.

I'd keep it winterized until the end of March or so around here. I have seen ice storms in March.
