First time winterizing

I have to give a hand to the previous owner of my camper as he saved every piece of literature that came with the camper. This made it very easy for me to know where to find the bypass valves to the H2O heater. I believe it is all good to go all I need to do is place a few dryer sheets around so it keeps it fresh.

On this topic of winterizing. This is the third winter for our Komfort 3050. And this is the first year I can't get my TV out. Should I be worried? Last year it got down to almost
-40*(C and F)
Thanks

In my SOB (some other brand) in the past I've left my TV's in the camper during the Winter and had no issues. I'm in Maine lowest temps maybe -20 (F). Although, I've never had -40 (F) temps.
I can't say anything about the flat screen TV's in my Infinity, it Winter's in Florida.

Had two flatscreen TVs in my last rig last winter that saw the windchills lower than -40 and had no issues in the spring with them.

The only caveat with freezing flat screens... DON'T try to power them up when they are way below freezing, it WILL shatter the screen. Been there done that with a laptop.

Sure glad I don't have to worry about all this winterizing stuff. Have had RV's for 25+ years & no nothing about this subject. Living in the desert for 45 years will cause that. Now if you want to know about RV's in 110+ temperatures I'm you man.

too dry

LOL. how long have you been waiting to say something like that? That's too dry, my wife and I did a mountain bike trip with various stops around the four corner states and it was epic. I have never been so thirsty.
