Put it away for the winter

The season in the northeast is over, the campgrounds for the most part have turned off the water and I'm not much of a dry camper and heading south for the winter is not in my plans right now. We took the rig in to the selling dealer with a couple of warranty issues as well as winterize, check a few things and add a couple of new things.
I'm waiting to hear from the dealer as I'm hoping they can store it on their property as well.
But we are done until April 2015, it was a great first season with our new RW. I hope the winter goes fast.

Always a sad time. I'll get it out a couple times through the winter, but not much.

Our season will be coming to an end after the Thanksgiving Holiday. We usually start back up in late March.

Just THINK of all of the ADVENTURE you are missing by not living in your RV in the winter!! (Listening to the torrential rain drumming on the roof right now.... ) I expect we won't be seeing our awnings until April, that's for sure!

In our area most campgrounds close between October 15 and the 30th and reopen between march 20th and April 1st. As weekend warriors we still were in our camper around 160 days this season.

I guess we will have ours winterized next week. This week we are camping in A KOA at Hocking Hills in Ohio. We were hoping our house would sell so we could go full time, but that hasn't happened yet. We will pull it out after Christmas to pull down to FL for 4-6 months and then back home again. So I guess with Indiana winters we will be winterized for two months.

If you are storing your RW inside you may not need to winterize. We store our RW in our pole barn and it rarely gets below freezing in the barn before January here in northeastern Indiana. I keep a small electric heater blowing warm air through the floor cold air return, located at the bottom step, and set the furnace thermostat set to 45 to 50 degrees. It doesn't use much LP and we are able to get the coach ready for our trip to Florida in late December. That way we don't have to winterize and de-winterize when going south.

We've looked for an indoor space and the only place we could find had a 20 person wait list. We are camping in the Hocking Hills area of Ohio and I just noticed that there is fluid on one of the pads. Looks like I need to have them look at that when they do the winterize.

Spent yesterday getting ready for winter. Cleaned and scrubbed the roof, touched up some sealant. Washed, waxed and used Chemical Guys sealer. Lubed everything up and did a full inspection. Not moving around as quickly today ��. We have about three more weeks before I have to put it away. Sad times.
