Question Myrtle Beach storage


We are planning to tow our RV to Myrtle beach near the end of October and then leave it in storage there until mid February. Wondering if I should winterize it before we leave and install a battery disconnect switch to prevent the batteries from discharging.

From here in SC, I agree about freezing; I winterize here, too. I'm a bit worried about your batteries, even disconnected, for 3 1/2 months. Is it possible to bring them home with you, and keep them on trickle charge? Or is it possible to plug in at storage? Otherwise they might draw a heavy load from your tow vehicle when you first hook up.

Thanks for the info.

I will winterize it and bring the batteries home - I usually take the batteries out in the winter and give them a charge every month.
