Keurig

I'm considering buying a Keurig for the trailer and am wondering (based on comments I've seen on another thread) if I should be concerned with the fact you can not fully drain the water from a Keurig.

It would be dedicated to the trailer and my concern is letting water sit in the unit from October until May (freezing is not an issue, I would store it at home for the winter). I would use distilled water as I do in my unit at home.


Thoughts?

Contrary to what you may hear, without disassembly it is impossible to get all of the water out. DW and I have a Keurig 2.0 for the house and a B570 for the camper. When the season is over, we do a descale and run 6-8 cups through it to rinse. Then we store it in a closet in the house (we have freeze issues). Since you have no freeze issues, just store it in the camper. In the spring, we take it out, run 6-8 cups through it and it is ready to go. Going on 4 years with no issues. BTW, we don't use distilled water, not really necessary if you do regular maintenance.

We have a mini keurig. It does not retain water. A little less automated, but it takes up less space and makes fine coffee.

We too have the Keurig Mini which we use both in our residence and we than use this in the trailer. We take two coffee makers with us every time we travel in the trailer. We use a cheap Mister Coffee for our morning coffee use. We then will use the Keurig for individual needs during the day or evening use. The DW likes hot tea and or a cup of hot chocolate at night and I will have a cup of coffee with her.

We use the Keurig with the carafe in the motorhome and St home. We also have cold winters and bring it in every time we come back from a trip.

We do as others have said. Take it out in spring and run several cups through it and go. Ours comes inside for winter due to freezing temps...and a few weeks ago the regular one in the house died in the early morning. Was nice to just walk downstairs and get the one out of storage. I get grumpy if I can't have my morning coffee! This saved the day!
