Default First time storing 2006 Roadtrek 210 Popular

Okay the newbie is back with a few more questions.
First time to store the RT for winter in Ohio so what do you do about your house batteries, 2- 6v golf cart, as far as keeping them charged?
Also not electrical but how about advice on winterizing?
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Just make sure the batteries are (a) fully-charged and (b) completely disconnected (via a switch or disconnecting the ground leads). They will be fine all winter. Even better, if you park outdoors and have solar, then get a Trik-L-Start and they will stay topped-up on their own.

For winterization, learn how to blow out the system with compressed air. Plenty of instructions on the web. You need RV antifreeze for the drain traps and macerator. I would never put it in my fresh system, though. Others will disagree.

I park right beside my garage and plug it in. Your converter charger will take care of it.

It shouldn't. It should have 3 or 4 stages ending up in a float level. BUT remember that you probably will need a add-on charger for your motor battery.
