Winterizing Your Travel Trailer

Wow, can you believe it? It's that time of year to winterize your travel trailer already! Where does the year go anymore?

Well, we just got back from our last camping trip of the year, and let me tell you, it was a cold one! I never thought I'd see the low 30's in October this early in the year! We had a great time. Weather was good, other than some rain and cold. We unfortunately, lost our heater. We'll go into more on that later!

So, for those of you who live in the colder climates, don't forget to winterize your RV or schedule an appointment to take it in to a local dealership. You don't want those lines freezing over the winter.

For those critters that want to bed down in your quarters? Moth balls, Irish Spring Soap, or even dryer sheets work very well. Please keep in mind, moth balls can be toxic to children and pets.

We hope everyone enjoyed the 2018 season, and we are looking forward to spending 2019 with you!
