I remove my battery and keep it on a trickle charger. Also a good idea to make sure the flue vent for the propane fridge is covered to prevent unwanted guests. I also leave an open box of baking soda in the fridge to absorb odors. I change the oil so that any sludge doesn't settle out over the winter and leave a thick layer on the bottom. Make sure that your canvas is bone dry!!!
