This isn't a "how to" do each step (you can ask that later).
Are you storing indoors or outdoors? Near your house, far away and won't even see it daily? Temperature controlled or not? Covered by a roof or RV cover? Or no cover? What are the winter temps in your area? Snow/rain/heavy winds/ice possible?

Okay:
1. Remove all water: drain freshwater tank, drain water heater.
2. Drain gray and blackwater tanks.
3. RV antifreeze (bypass water heater), hopefully your RV has a valve to siphon the RV antifreeze using the RV's water pump to pull the antifreeze to each fixture (all faucets and toilets, showers)
4. Empty refrigerator, leave door open.
That's the bare minimum. Other owners will jump in and add stuff - but that prevents water from freezing and damaging the RV plumbing and/or water heater.

Add: Step 1a, open both hot & cold "low point" drains and open ALL taps!

Don't forget to blow out the black water flush system if your unit is so equipped....and don't forget about the outside shower thingy we never used but still winterize every fall and flush every spring.

Thanks for all your help! I winterized it today. Wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Was worried about the antifreeze part. Take care!

Don't forget to clear the lines between the hot water bypass. If you don't you'll have the pex connection disconnected in the spring. Ask me how I know. Lol.
