We stay at Treasure Coast RV Resort, right off Route 70 between The Florida Parkway and I95. A smaller park, 260 Full Hookup sites. Large cement pads and 2 lane internal roads. We love it. The couple that run the park live on site in their 5th wheel and the others that work there are either Full Timers or Long Timers so they've all been on the receiving end of other Camp Grounds, so they treat you right.

The campground you mentioned is Flamingo Lake and it is great. Pecan Park is within a few miles of that campground and that park is great also. We have stayed at both. We live in Saint Augustine. There are a few campgrounds in Saint Augustine that are good but pricey as they are on/close to the beach, Pepper Tree, Ocean Grove, and Bryn Mawr. There is the Anastasia State Park which is right on the beach (electric and water and a dumping station) If you want something out by I95 there is the Indian Forrest and Stagecoach Parks. If you want more info since we live in Saint Augustine, regarding, restaurants, things to do, etc, drop us a note at coljdm60@gmail.com

I like the idea of breaking the monotony of waxing with a few brewskys. We have one more trip planned this weekend in Branson. When I wax, I'll start at the top so as I consume more I'll be closer tosolid groundStill waiting on RW to ship my front jack system to Lifestyles RV for a leak repair. We have the 36RL with the slide- in - slide and enjoy being the "show and tell" of campgrounds

All,

Completed our winterizing of our 38BR at Camping in Style in Whitby yesterday. What we did is slightly different than the Redwood Manual.... took us about an hour.

Obtain 4-6 gal of RV antifreeze
1. Open all taps and drain all tanks via valves below coach. Close all valves below coach and taps when done.
2. Trip pressure valve on hot water tank to release any pressure. Remove hot water tank drain plug/anode. Any wear on anode requires replacement or anode dissolves and drops into tank.
3. Remove and drain water filter assembly located in basement behind access door and re-install.
4. Close bypass valve immediate below water filter assembly (located behind wall in basement)
5. Switch water heater bypass valve in connection compartment
6. Extend syphon hose and insert in RV antifreeze
7. Turn on water pump to charge system... may take up to 1 gal to do this.
8. Purge City Water connection by pushing in screen with index finger (check valve on connector)
9. With coiled line attached (check valve on connector) Open hot then cold tap to purge outdoor shower station
10. Use Shower Station hose to flush Black Water Back flush connection... no check valve here... be careful when you disconnect hose or you will get wet.
11. Open hot then cold tap in kitchen sink until antifreeze flows... run long enough to fill trap too.
12. Open hot then cold tap in bathroom sink until antifreeze flows... run long enough to fill trap too.
13. Run toilet until antifreeze flows... make sure there is antifreeze left in the bowl. This keeps the valve lubricated.
14. Remove shower head and pull shower head hose thru wall thimble so you don't get A/F all over shower stall. Open hot then cold tap until antifreeze flows... run long enough to fill trap too.
15. Ice Maker - I don't have an ice maker... those that do will need to figure that out.
16. Dishwasher - open cabinet above dishwasher... start wash cycle... A/F can be seen in plastic supply line above dishwasher. After several seconds, turn the dishwasher off. The vacuum pump in the dishwasher will pump out most of the contents.
Washer - follow the instructions at http://www.splendide.com/WD2_AW122_Winterize</span></span>.pdf
or we did the following:
17. Turn off hot and cold supply taps. Start a cold water washer cycle... open cold supply tap. RV A/F will be visible thru the plastic supply elbow. Run for several seconds... Pause washer and close cold supply tap. Start a hot water washer cycle... open hot supply tap. RV A/F will be visible thru plastic supply elbow. Pause washer and open cold supply tap. Set machine for spin cycle to drain RV A/F from the drum. Unplug unit, ensure both supply taps are open.
18. Switch bypass in Utility Stn to normal to pump some RV A/F into the hot water tank.
19. Shut off water pump.
20. Keep Grey and Black Water valves closed... RV A/F keeps the valves lubricated.

Thanks for posting the process. I plan to copy and print it off as this process is somewhat different than our previous coach.

Brad: Nice job. Thanks for the detail on this. I started reading the Redwood-provided info on winterizing, but was freezing standing next to that basement door. Ha Ha! Now, I'll just bring the iPad out there & follow your posting...Edited by: 5th_Time
