Yesterday I winterized out 5th,
camping is done till next year.
So this got me to thinking, being up north in Canada freezing lines has always been a concern. Even the most seasoned camper can make a mistake or forget once in awhile.
I thought this would be a good time to point out some of our tips on winterizing for the newbies and possibly a reminder to the well seasoned veterans.
I have two pointers that some of you may or may not know.
The City Water Connection, I myself never use ours but there is water present in the CWC. In order to remove the water, disconnect your hose from the City Water Connection on thetrailer and carefully remove the screen, you will see a plastic tab, push this tab in to release the water untill your plumbing anitfreeze runs through.
Some trailers have an actual shower head for their outside shower so I'm not sure if you can modify it to the following: for those trailers that have a coiled hose like mine with a hose connection run the hot and cold as you normally would until the plumbing antifreeze runs through. Once you know the pink is in the outside shower lines connect the coiled hose to the sani flush line and run it a little bit to replace any water that may still be in the wand. (On a side note, during camping season occasionally I use the hot water on the sani flush to help clean the black tank.)
Anyway hope this helps and hopefully others will post their tips on winterizing techniques.
