You guys want a good laugh?

So I get back from camping today, blow out the lines, bypass the water heater and pump in the pink antifreeze. Try my darndest to remove the anode, and head over to the forums to try and figure out how to get it off (looks like I might be buying/renting an impact wrench).

Talking to my wife on the phone (she's headed down to NC to see her parents) complaining about how I'm having trouble getting the , and she says:

"Aren't we taking it out again for Thanksgiving?"

Oh, and it's not supposed to be below freezing between now and Thanksgiving.

D'oh!

We're lucky enough to live in a climate that we only have to be winterized between about late November/early December and late February/early March. I THOUGHT that my next trip was the second week in February (I bring the RV on my 6 business trips a year) so I came home and winterized.

I wish my wife had remembered about Thanksgiving BEFORE I did everything but the water heater...

What's this "winterizing" you speak of.

Is that when you turn on the heater to bring up the inside temp a couple of degrees to above 68?

sorry couldn't resist

That's awesome! We could have camped a lot last winter because it was so mild, but I don't think it's going to repeat this year.

We have a trip to Death Valley for the Christmas New Years week planned. I'm personally hoping for snow in the upper elev. there, just a little.

I'll take winterizing over living on the west coast. Just not my cup of tea...

Yes I know what you mean. But my wife's and my retirement are past the point of no return. So we are stuck here for a few more years, but after that we are jumping ship.

I'll try to laugh like that when I'm shoveling for the next 4 or 5 months.
