Winterizing (Not about the water lines though)

On our last trip for the year and talking to the wife about what weíll leave in and what weíll bring in the house.

Iím of the opinion that pretty much anything that isnít food can stay.

What say you?

We always remove bedding, towels, clothes, etc too. Great places for nest building.

I'm still a newbie. But all food and anything liquid will be taken out. Camping season is pretty much over for me, but I'm using it as a man cave for just a bit longer because I'm not ready to accept seasons end yet. Can't afford to heat it all winter long, so me and the beer will be the last to leave

We take all food and anything that can freeze, like the Keurig, out. Bedding, linens and other camping gear stays in the camper.

We don't remove paper plates nor toilet paper because mice can't get to them.

Same with us. If the paper products are stored in a cabinet high on a side wall, we don't remove but if under the sink or any cabinet with electrical, plumbing or heat vents where mice can follow they will and they will use it to build nests.

We also remove our single serve Keurig type coffeemaker as I'm not 100% sure every drop of water boils out during use.

That makes sense. I wasnít sure if moisture was a concern

We take out all liquids and food. We havenít had problems with anything but those stink bugs. I keep all liquids together in a box and store in our house basement. Most goes back on in spring. Sometimes it gets borrowed from. I only take off the used sheets and towels as an usual trips. I have a small laundry basket that always holds those clean waiting to go back on
