I love to have things organized before heading out on our first trip so be sure to check out my Travel Trailer Organization Ideas for more tips and tricks! Or how to winterize your travel trailer this fall.

Our dewinterizing essentials:
- This Flexible RV Sealant works well to seal the seams of the roof.
- I like this Mildew Stain Remover for cleaning our awning.
- This RV Antifreeze is what I use to winterize my water lines. 1 gallon is enough for my trailer. Be sure to get RV antifreeze and not the other stuff.
- A charger like this Duracell Trickle Charger must be hooked up to your trailer batteries over winter or they may lose their charge and not work in the spring. Ask me how I know!
- I use these Dry Air Pellets and this refillable Dry Air Pot to help reduce moisture in the trailer over winter.
How to dewinterize your travel trailer checklist:
- Restock toiletries
- Stock dry goods and kitchen supplies like paper towels and tin foil
- Make beds
- Open hot water valves
- Flush & sanitize the water system
- Go over all of the seals & re caulk if needed
- Fill tanks, water & propane
- Check water & brake lines for leaks
- Check all storage compartments for rodents
- Test appliances, batteries and lights
- Check lug nuts, bearings and tires
- Test brake lines (if required)
- Oil if needed
- Charge & restock batteries
- Check anything stored over winter for mold & mildew
