It is close.
About 2 inches between the top of my MaxxAir cover (my highest point) and the overhang.

Winterizing.........geez.

We won't get a frost until mid November.

This is one big planet.

We are getting into the season where an unexpected overnight freeze can happen without warning. Even though I'm not ready to fully winterize, I have started blowing out the water lines between trips just in case. I will fully winterize with anti freeze about a month from now.

Interesting methods mentioned above. I'm curious though, how does one collect the coyote urine to spray on the tires?

Compressed air?

I just sanitized mine a couple of days ago, and was curious to see if I could blow any water out after completely draining.

I ran the bleach water through the faucets, so drained the Grey tanks and then pulled the "low point drain valves". I let it drain all night.

The next morning, after closing all the faucets and Grey tank valves, I hooked up a blow out adapter to my tank fill opening. Being cautious, I only ran about 45 psi through the lines, but would say it only pushed about a tablespoon of water out the low point drains. Not sure if that was because I needed more pressure or just a good design on the coach. As a result, not sure I'll use antifreeze in the lines, maybe just down the drains.
