Ayup. I bought 3 gals of pink stuff from Camping World yesterday. I have to say, this is the first season in the last three that didn't have to winterize in September due to planned surgeries so we're definitely taking full advantage. This morning in NH it was 28 cold degrees...Brrrrrrr

DH had full left knee replacement on Sept 26 and has the right one scheduled for early November. Labor Day was our last camping weekend until next spring. Spring break can't get here soon enough!!

I know what you mean, just finished that chore with the Lite.

Opened a big tub of Damp-Rid on top of that......

We got in more days this year but not near enough IMO.

Think about things before you do them make life easier not harder.
