To winterize it is fairly easy.

To prep it for winter storage, a bit more work. All food and paper products are removed. All cabinets, counter, floor, etc is throughly washed. Make a list of stuff we need to purchase for next year. We also place a few sticky mouse traps around the htt. Never had on inside yet.

One of the big things I did the first summer we had ours was to crawl underneath and find every single hole and fill it with steel wool and then marine grade silicone caulk. Then I tried to find the holes from the inside and caulked them again.

Ahhh Florida, the KEYS... our trip there last December, a family with a 5er left his basement access panel open over night, and he could not figure out why his parrot was going crazy all night in his cage.. found rat turds on the floor. Went and purchased 3 rat traps, caught 2, 1' rats that he was carrying over to the dump the next morning...

We also have issues down here also. The little lizards, get into the front hitch area and go on trips with us. Do not mind it as long as they stay on the outside of the TT.

Even we go south for the winter.

Remote batteries...
