Now that you are done yours can you have a go at mine?

Truth be told I had a look at my trailer a couple weeks ago and it was still looking nice and shiny from my fall wax and polish. I was quite happy to see that, going to be a bit easier to clean it up once it's time this spring

Replaced the tire I was worried about. Went with Maxxis, $110 out the door. Went from load range C to D. Will do the other three later this spring.
Greased the bearings - 10 minute job followed by 40 min of cleanup. I can sure make a mess!
Removed FR water filter and bypassed it. One less thing to worry about breaking!
T minus 13 days and counting until Ft Wilderness!!

I have a conference in CA the 1st week of April. The average last freeze here is April 15th. I was hoping I could get lucky and make it through until then, but if it gets cold while I'm out of town, DW won't do anything with it and then I'm in trouble. Oh well.

I feel your pain. I got out early this year and I am now looking doing the same thing tomorrow night. I plan to dump the drains on everything but I am not going to winterize. I will put the pink stuff thru the traps to clear the water but wonder if I might just leave the heat on for a night or two to protect the toilet or leave the little heater near it. Might do both. If it goes south for me, I will share.

I was just un-listed to attend a partner conference in AZ during the first week in April and I am so hurt that I will have to spend the first two weekends of April at Carlyle Lake. Woe is me.

Wow. That's pretty rough.

I wonder if they knew they did you a favor?

Have fun semi- winterizing. I thought of bring my trailer home and just plugging it in, but it takes up my entire driveway and pumping a couple of gallons in is easier than towing it home and it sitting blocking everything.

Oh well. A few more weeks and we'll be in the clear.

I installed the Blue Streak system to treat the black tank and keep the potty clean. I have used the geo system for years without any trouble so I hope the Blue streak system does the job. I also raised the RV off the ground, greased the bearings and adjusted the brakes a few notches till there was a bit of drag on the drums. Next year I'll pull the drums, clean it all up and give it a good inspection with new seals, did that last year.
