Winterize Your RVThe first thoughts that usually flash through every RVer’s mind when the first frost of winter comes along are:

There are visions of frozen pipes, expensive damage, and lots of dollar signs — because to wait one day too long could be very expensive!

However, when it comes to winterization, the RV’s electrical system often gets overlooked.  You need to know that batteries can freeze, plates can warp when ice forms, and cases can split and leak acid all over everything.  Preparing your RV batteries for winter storage is just as important as protecting the water system.

My personal preference is to bring the RV batteries into a heated environment and charge them up a couple times during the winter months.
