Winterized

Changed the oil and hydro fluid on everything this week. Winterized the pumps, gas tanks, and greased everything up. Now I will just have to sit and look at it tell spring.
Anybody keep sealer in there tank over the winter. I got about 200 gallons left and I'm just planing on keeping inside so it doesn't freeze and cleaned out the pumps and hoses. I think it should be fine, should I just agitate it every 2 weeks?

I clean out tank completely and pressure wash out all sand and as much of built up sealer on sides off tank and then run RV antifreeze through whole system. Store any leftover sealer in plastic tote and put it in shop.

Clean out the tank for sure. Water flush everything until only clean water comes out. RV antifreeze through the whole system.
Makes spring start-up a breeze.
