How to Dewinterize Your RV or Camper for Spring

• by Mike Wendland

If you're like me, you took great care to winterize your RV at the end of the last season.

But now it's that time of year to undo all that hard work. Even if it's been in winter storage, it's important to dewinterize an RV, travel trailer, or camper so that you can identify and fix any issues that may have occurred over the season.

I have written a few articles on winterizing, and even recorded a popular podcast on How to Winterize and Prepare for Cold Weather. I just realized I didn't have any helpful articles for dewinterizing… so here it is!

When Should You Dewinterize Your RV? 

It is up to you when it's a good time to dewinterize your RV. However, it's a good idea to check the two-week forecast in your area to make sure you're really out of the cold season. 

It is important to ensure temperatures are consistently reaching above freezing. Do not despair if a cold snap comes through after you have dewinterized your RV. Just be sure to keep the inside temperature of the RV warm, and holding tanks empty.
