So it is my first year with the trailer. I'm fairly handy and don't want to pay someone for something that I can do myself. Is it worth paying the dealer to winterize my trailer? I have seen You Tube videos out there on how to do it and it looks fairly easy. Just don't want to take a chance. Thoughts?

I prefer to do it myself, I find it really easy to do. By the time I hitch up and take it somewhere I can have it completed. Also by doing it myself I might be able to get another weekend in.

This year I'll be winterizing my Rockwood for the 1st time. The past 5 years I've had a relatively easy job in prepping my popup (just a fresh water system) for the offseason.
