Winterizing Bench cushions and bed mattress

We just purchased our gently used Escape RV trailer and need to store it for the Winter. Should we remove the bench cushions and the mattress for storing? Thanks!

I do not think so, put some damp rid in a cup in the sink and close it up, maybe crack the vent a tiny bit. Winterize it off course.

I just up-end the cushions so air can get underneath. I have a mesh sheet underneath the mattress and it all seems to work fine. And I leave the vents open a bit for air circulation and the 5.0 itself is covered and winterized.
