My wife & I bought a 2012 280DS in July trading in our 15yr old Winnebago.
I always did the winterizing myself and got comfortable working on it.
But then we bought the 280DS and it had less than 6K miles on it & smelled like new carpet & leather.
I have to admit to being lazy and simply using and enjoying it right up till last week when the nightly lows dropped into the upper 20s.
I had been having so much fun with the "new to us" Georgetown that I kept putting off getting on here and finding what I need to know to winterize it this month.
It's currently at the dealership ready for pick up having been winterized.
So my shame is complete! But I still want to know if there is anything else different from the Winnebago.
I say anything else because where the "low point drains" are labled on the exterior I see colored lines exiting below the coach with plastic color matching plugs in them but I didn't see any valves for the low point drains.
Our Georgetown has the Article Pak so when I opened the exterior access panel all I saw was the black sealed panel with two access ports.
Also, given the location of the water heater, how do I access the W/H bypass valve , remove some drawers and reach it from inside?
Any tips or help is appreciated. I plan to spend the winter getting this sorted out so I can de-winterize it myself as opposed to paying the $80 the dealership wants.
