It is the time of year to make sure the wing tube holes are protected against freezing
I use a shop vac to dry holes then a piece of foam pipe insulation and place a mason jar lid seal siliconed over the hole
This works for me

A dollop of anitfreeze and rubber stoppers work, too. No need to mess with silicone seal. Antifreeze is insurance.
