I don't normally point people to google search results, but in this case that might be best:
Google: How to winterize travel trailer

Then you can pick whether you prefer text or youtube.

Exactly what you need to do will depend on what helpful things are installed, such as bypass valves for the water heater.

tons of YouTube vids on this process. If your in the souther states I just say use a blow out valve and remove water from the lines, up north definatly use RV antifreeze.
