We are new to the tent-camper and since the first week of August we are managing to squeeze in 6 - 3 day weekend trips with it. This past Saturday morning we woke up to 27* at 5am. I didn't hook up the water for the sink till Saturday, since it was forecast to be below freezing for Friday night.
So, I've been reading on winterizing, and I think I have it covered but I'm also sure I've probably missed something. Can you review my list? We have one trip left next weekend and then I"ll have to put it away I think.
Since new, we have never used the 12V pump or the water tank underneath, it's always been dry. So I'd expect that we don't have to RV Antifreeze any of that right?
Otherwise, I"m planning to:
- Clean the interior and remove our stuff.
- RV Antifreeze the sink drain till it comes out the hose on the side.
- Leave the sink handles in the open position
- Remove the smoke detector 9V battery
- Remove the 12V battery and have on a tender at home.
- Remove the Propane tank and have filled, store in detached shed at home. Cover nozzle on tank and camper.
- Pull camper onto Pressure Treated 1x8's to get tires off the ground
- Check tire pressure, including spare
- Mothball the refrigerator access panel space
- Damp Rid in a bucket inside on the floor, accessible by the side door.
- Wash & Wax the outside
- Install cover on the furnace intake/exhaust
- Install cover on the AC unit
- Cover with the vented RV cover
Anything I should lube for the winter (bed slides, stabilizers, power lift cable?)?
