As for exercise your coach during the winter, I'd recommend not do so, we have a lot of salt on the road and this is a steel coach and lots of items on the underside that can rust from the salt. I always wait for the temperatures to stay above 50 degrees and a couple of heavy spring rains to clear the roads of any salt.

If you have battery bank switches to disconnect the batteries ( both the engine and coach batteries) use them. Or if the storage place allows you to plug in to a 110v - 15 amp outlet, keep the batteries charged through your inverter/charger. Tell them it is for a trickle charger to float the batteries, very minimal current will be used.Rremember to use your Dash switch to combine your engine and coach batteries so that they stay charged together.

Hi, thank you for your tips. The bus was fully winterized last Winter and I have not used anything in the bus which required water. Our short day trips this year were 2 and 3 hours long between family visits. I guess I can leave the bus in storage till Spring. Since I bought the bus I pretty much drive it at least once a month. Short family day trips to visit family or I'd simply drive around the neighborhood. The storage unit has electric which I will use to keep the batteries charged.
