Just Winterized the old Girl

Used the compressor to blow out the lines then pumped antifreeze in. Took about 2.5 gallons.
Next, clean out the cabinets. Sweep and mop.
Kind of brings a tear to your eye, see you next spring.

Did the same here last weekend. Also, added a Damprid moisture absorber tub on the inside and some moth balls hanging on all 4 corners and near each wheel as well.

Well I joined those who put the ole girl to bed for the winter.
Got the cabinets all cleaned out and polished.
Completed a few minor maintenance items, removed the propane tanks and the battery.

Now I just need to wash and wax before the cover gets put on.

Just winterizing and getting last minute warranty work done.. Will mothballs help to keep rodents out? I see one of you hung some by the wheels.. Will this work in cold, damp and rainy weather areas? Already caught two of the buggers.. One in a sticky trap, the other a spring loaded trap.. Bought steel wool to stuff where needed... What areas would people suggest we concentrate the steel wool application?

Last mothballs I bought from Wal-Mart came in air flow package ( 2 in box) and just threw under camper.

One more trip planned this year in Georgia but still have to blow out lines and add antifreeze to keep pump from freezing, also pumped some through flush valve on toliet.
