Winterizing soap dispensers and other odds and ends

I'm guessing there are some potential areas for frost damage beyond the obvious freshwater and wastewater systems.

- Liquid soap dispensers
- Fridge drain
- A/C condensate drain lines
- Smoke and CO detector batteries (prone to leakage)

Wondering whether any of this stuff is really a problem or if it's just my Minnesota winter paranoia mindset at work

Both the frig and AC drains are self draining and unless they have become plugged, quite unlikely, they will not be a problem.

Liquid soap in a dispenser may be a problem. Not so much as the soap up in the bowl but the soap in the dispenser valve because there is no room for expansion while thawing.

Battery leakage is more a factor of age than temperature so to be safe remove them.
