First winter fulltiming

Hi All, this will be our first winter full timing and we would greatly appreciate any and all tips/advice you could give us for preparing the Rv - as in plumbing, holding tanks, skirting etc. We have a Granite Ridge 3100ss and both of us are pretty mechanically inclined so we can do a lot of it ourselves, like a lot of folk we need to watch our money so DIY mods would be great. I've been scouring the net so I've gathered a lot of info just nothing specific to our Rv so I thought I'd ask here. Thanks in advance for any help.

I ment to add that we will be staying in southeastern Virginia, so we will not likely get too many days/nights of sub freezing temps but around here you never know. Last winter we barely made it below 40 most of the winter but the year before we had 10 - 16 inch snow falls with temps staying in the 20s and low 30s. The common saying around here is " if you like the weather stick around it will change".
