Exterior Winter care

I clean my roof, check the seals, wash+wax and cover my travel trailer for Winter. What do you do to your exterior before Winter storage and what products do you use?
I realize many folks on here live in warmer climates and don't need to go to the same extremes as me but I'm still curious what you use on your exterior.

Sounds like you got it covered. Breaks your heart to cover it up for the winter, doesn't it?

Isn't that what puppies do when they get excited?

Hadn't thought about that.
In the south, piddling is doing something that is not necessarily too important but keeps one from having idle hands. Apparently elsewhere it means to make a puddle.

Diddle, piddle and fiddle,,,,,,,,,all the same. Something to do that sometimes causes real work.

Kind of funny....in the mountains of East Tennessee they all mean something different.

Ah Yes, DIDDLE means to ...

Piddle means to mindlessly do something then do something then do something...

Fiddle means to fiddle with it. Like, Don't fiddle with that, it will make you go blind (can I do it until I need glasses?)
