Awesome! Our light went out a few weeks ago and I had it on the list for winter maintenance. Crossed off the list.
Been looking at the forecast... Looks kinda nice for the next 10 days... And the kids have a couple extra days off... So I'm holding off winterizing for now. We'll see.

Sorry to hear you sold already, Cableman. Barely got her broken in. Hope things work out and you can jump back into the mix in the near future. Your contributions to this thread have been greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Unfortunately no. Makes no sense. I'm questioning the antenna line. Setting are right and it's not the booster. Im going to play with it more tomorrow.

Winterized our Apex today. 😩 I was hoping to get one more weekend... Supposed to be nice here in the northeast... But the wife traveled all week and wants to stay put (she was near the center of the earthquakes north of Pheonix earlier this week). So today I did the hibernation thing... All went according to plan... Used an air compressor to blow the lines... Followed it up with pink stuff just to be sure. Used a box of Cab Fresh and some peppermint oil to keep the critters out.
Time to read the FROG boards for the next 5-months.

It took a little less than 2 gallons... But I had purchased 3... So I dumped the third down the traps.

That kind of makes me sad to hear. No camping fun for five months. Where about are you guys, and do you ever do 288bhs gatherings?
I live about 15 miles south of the epicenter of those phoenix area quakes and felt them. Hope it didn't shake up the missus too bad.

I always blew out lines starting with all cold then moved to hot then toilet then outside shower and stuck antifreeze in drains. I didnt like the idea of that antifreeze in the water lines! Never had any freezing line issues! I have a buddy that would just drain hw heater, crack all fausets and that was it! Only thing he had problems with was traps! I wouldnt go that route though.

That could be fun. Confusing when you came back to the campground but fun! We're in NC.
