I winterized last year after the amana rally about the 3rd week of October but you know Iowa weather and we've camped all the way up to Halloween.
I pretty much winterize when lows are going to be consistently below 30 degrees.
I live 38 miles east of cr.

Congrats on your new 21FBRS. We had one & really enjoyed it. It was a breeze to tow. Good luck & enjoy. BTW, welcome from NE Fla.

Congrats and welcome. Don't let your excitement cloud you vision. I recommend you don't sign any paperwork until after the PDI. Don't accept the unit until it is right. Dealers are very motivated to fix problems when their money is at stake. Once they have your money that urgency is gone. You are buying this RV to enjoy not park on a dealer's lot waiting for warranty repairs.

These are very wise words.

We have the same trailer. Its a great couples trailer. We have had ours 2 years and still love it. Hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy ours.

This place is a great resource for lots of information. If you need help, feel free to ask.
