We winterize them. If stored on the hard

, potable water
, air conditioner raw water
, even waste.
Generally you pump pink RV/Boat non-toxic propylene glycol antifreeze
(not what goes in your engine) through each system until it comes out pink. If you are really anal you can catch a sample when it turns pink and test for freeze protection.
It takes me about an hour and 5 gallons of antifreeze
to do them all.
In the spring, flush out.
