ok so call me silly............... we have ours professionally winterized. Paid enough for it....... once a year cost for peace of mind through the winter!!! Costs no more than a tank of gas!!! Won't be hauling much through the winter............so it kind of balances out we think.

Paid a master tech that comes out to our RV resort - his rates are less expensive than dealer typically. It's the first year so no gamble with warranty claims later.

Next year, I will do it myself. It is pretty easy.

I've been doing my own winterizing for the last 10 years and now that I'm retired, I'm thinking of advertising to do this for others-- it's not all that hard to do and I have a generator, compressor and portable tank to put anti-freeze in and able to blow it thru the lines, so just might give it a shot.

Craigslist under services. click on title only search. Then type in RV. You will find an easy way to advertise and your competition.

Suprised me how many people at my place had the guy winterize their rigs. He charged 65 for labor and 4 bucks per gallon of pink RV juice. I swore he did a couple dozen in 2 weekends.

If I had a part time gig, it would be driving RV for seniors. They love the lifestyle but the older they get, the more scared they are of driving them. Kind of like driving your parents to Sunnyvale care home but different. LOL!

Winterizing port

Is the connection for antifreeze to the right of the Black Tank Flush connection. Mine has no label on it.
Thanks
