Default Winter storage

Hi, everyone.

My wife, Susan, and I are totally new to RVing. We have just purchased a 2003 Monaco Windsor and have to store it until we can leave for Palm Springs in February. We have the coach outdoors in a compound and it has been winterized. The transmission, engine and generator fluids have been changed to synthetic. The antifreeze is good to -60.

I also installed a 400-watt oil pan heater on the generator. The tires are filled with nitrogen and have styrofoam pads under them. I plan on taking the coach out once a week for a hundred-mile run with the generator running so that everything should be okay when we leave.

The problem that I'm facing is that I can't run power to the coach all the time, and when it's sitting with the power off it will be flat on the air suspension. I'm assuming that this is not a good thing. Is there anything I can do?

Oh, by the way, we are in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and in the winter it is not uncommon for the temperature to stay at -30 for one or two weeks. Thank you for any help you can offer.
