Where does one draw the line on what can spend the cold Winter in the unheated RV, versus what needs to come into the house? I try to remember all liquids, but how about pills; aspirin, ibuprofen, etc. Band aids? AA batteries? Other stuff?

We take ours south in the winter, but a number of winters we have left long after it is freezing here. Everything stays in the RV if it doesn't freeze and explode.

I have always left MOST of that other stuff in the RV. Contents of the medicine cabinet stay, (other than liquids) but all soaps and cleaning supplies are brought into the home. Of course bedding, cook ware, dishes etc. stay in their only home (the RV). I once overlooked ONE little potato in our pantry and paid the price of a really bad odor the next spring so I'm now pretty careful about perishable foods.

If it won't freeze and break open it stays.

All food comes out. After that we have a Rubbermaid container for all liquids or anything that can freeze, containers break. Shampoo's, toothpaste, topical creams, aspirin, from the first aid kit etc. Actually they get used in the house and new items put into container for a quick grab and throw into RV for the Feb getaway.
Everything else, batteries, bandaids stay in the RV. This includes clothes, bedding. It takes about an hour to get ready to go.

All liquids and dry foods removed. Bedding went into sealed bags with the air vacuumed out. I removed all batteries because they can leak, and the cold will drain them. Stored chairs under the bed. All cutlery and utensils stayed, as did the Colman stove and Weber BBQ.

Liquids come out, including canned food. virtually everything else stays in. Stuff that comes out goes into a couple of rubbermaid totes so we don't forget what goes back in.
