DoctorT68, doesn't look like you will need to be winterized to leave. Have a safe trip. We head out the first of the year. I am between exit 5&4 of the NJTP. Feel free to say Hi!

Maybe not a possibility ???
Traveling with the family it's a pain in the butt. I'd rather not of course, which is why I writing all these questions

Wow, you took a hell of a risk. I just took my RV to have it winterized and he had a Class A on the lot that had a freeze and subsequent leak. He said so far it's been 8000.00 to find the leak and he wasn't sure if they were done yet!

DoctorT68,

Do you keep the coach at home and powered up or at remote storage?

I put 305 watts solar on the roof with 2 of the biggest AGM bats that would fit in the step. Full propane, heat @ 45 degrees, it will last 4 weeks and no freeze-ups.

I keep it home and could plug it in, but I don't. Why?

That's really neat. Every time someone tells me something like this I end up wanting to spend money!

You and me both. Neat thing about the panels, last year going to Florida, we stayed one night in a Virginia rest stop. The lights were the old style and made the panels work. Had heat all night and didn't kill the bats!

We keep ours powered up. Consider an oil filled heater to keep the coach interior
warm(er). I think it is easier on the coach to not allow the interior to go frigid, as a side benefit we do not unload the coach except for frig and bread items. The heater I use fits in the right rear bay during traveling so we rarely use the LP except for the frig on the road...
