I've never had a problem doing the following, nor have any of my friends who do the same.

Assuming you are planning on continuing to use your trailer, and as long as it is consistently above freezing during the day, you are generally good to go. If that concerns you then, as a three minute precautionary measure, pop the safety valve on the water heater and open all faucets and your low point drains. Don't forget to drain the fresh water tank and run the pump to make sure there is no water in the pump.

When the temps are going to be below freezing for more than 24 to 36 hours and you are no longer planning on using the trailer, do the antifreeze thing.

I would suggest that in the Richmond area you might generally want to winterize around late October.

Happy Camping! ///// Richard D.

Can anyone help me locate the low-point drains on my 2005 Flagstaff 23FBS?

Thanks in advance.

I have yet to find mine on my 26RKS but have never had an issue with winterizing. I did see two pipes under the bathroom area but never found anyplace to open them. I think they were overflow pipes if the sink or bath tub overflowed. I ran the antifreeze through the entire system and had no problems. I am in my third year with it and have no leaks yet so I must assume there are none.
