The fresh water tank is in the camper and if it's not staying cold for long you should be fine. Think about how long it takes to freeze water you should be okay. We de winterized our trailer at the beginning of March and haven't had any problems the last three years. In eastern Washington it can snow one day and be 70 the next during spring if we worried about the last day of freezing we would have to wait until June.

Then dumped a cup of RV antifreeze down each drain. Very simple and quick. To me blowing out your lines instead of pumping antifreeze through them will allow you to re-winterize your trailer even after you have sanitized it and not have to worry about re-sanitizing it. Just my way of thinking.


Make sure your Filter Canister is empty,,, and threads are dry !!!

I am going to put the battery back in and plug it in to open it up, and recheck the Damp-rid container.

Will likely flush the A/F out next month first trip out is all ready booked.
