My Forester 3011DS comes put of hibernation tomorrow

Tomorrow I take my 3011ds out of her 6 month sleeping spot. Actually she is parked under her rv port next to my garage. I keep her plugged in year round. Run everything once a month and check the water level in the battery regularly. Next friday we head south from CT to Myrtle Beach State Park for a week. Let the season begin and Let's Go Mets!. Have a great camping season all.

Lucky you. Our season is still over a month away.

However.....ours has stretched it’s mechanical legs, and everything in that aspect works fine.
Sounds like you’ve done your due diligence, however, my suggestion would be to drive it around this week as your daily driver to make sure all “vehicle-wise” is ready. The idea of myself coming out of a 6 month hibernation, and being asked to run a marathon to Myrtle Beach, scares me to death.

Just sayin’.

The covers coming off this weekend, getting ready for BC fishing at the end of the month. Iím sure weíll get more snow before then but I can put the batteries back in and start loading up.

We headed south from Detroit on Thursday with the pink stuff still in the plumbing. We stopped overnight in Georgetown KY and I flushed the pink out and bleached the water lines and tank. Then, because it was going to do the mid-20s that night, I blew out the water lines with an air compressor.



Kind of a major PITA but so worth it to be in Tennessee on a waterfront site for the next week.

Happy day! We got our Sunseeker out of underground storage this past Thursday. When I put it away last November it was spotless and wouldnít you know when we picked it up it was snowing and the roads were wet and filthy on the way home. O well a wash job this week and then heading south to Virginia for our first trip of the year soon.
