Winterizing your RV

Here in New Jersey we’re no strangers to harsh winters and lots of snow. This means that for us RV’ers here in the Garden State, we can fall prey to damage to our RVs. That’s why winterizing and preparing yourself for the months ahead is really important, and we’re here to help you.

Winterizing Your RV

Here’s a list of some of the things you’ll need to winterize your RV:

  • A standard toolkit
  • A cleaning wand is the best tool for cleaning the holding tanks in your RV
  • 2-3 gallons of non-toxic antifreeze for you to line the plumbing of your RV
  • Water pump converter kit or tubing
  • A water heater by-pass kit

Options for Winterizing

Before you winterize your RV, it’s important that you read the owners manual before you start. Working with something like the water heater on your RV can be very dangerous if it’s still hot or under pressure.

If you’ve never Winterized your RV before, we recommend having some help in order to prevent any damage to your RV that’ll lead to having to pay for repairs. For any of your questions, call Crossroads Trailers at (856) 697-4497 for a consultation. We also offer a range of services including Winterization/De-winterization packages at our Service Center!
