Not today, but installed a bypass on my water filter, installed a winterizing kit, and finished winterizing.

Thanks for the reminder- I need to dump out my water filter tomorrow!

Don't forget that little plastic strainer bowl on the suction side of the water pump.

went out and turned on the #2 oil heater in the living room (#1 is in the bathroom) Set both to "Freeze Protect" so the Bear Cave can survive the nights in the 20s the next few days before we go out again in early December

Not cold enough for full-out winterizing here yet, but we'll be opening the low point drains tonight, AND we set up the small electric heaters in it last night. Keeping it on shore power allows us to go all out heating if necessary....Amish fireplace and furnace if it gets that bad.

Hoping to hold off on fully winterizing 'til after Thanksgiving weekend...we'll be camping then.

DID finally get a pizza stone for the oven and a small personal sized humidifier for Sneak. His sinuses do NOT like dry heat in the winter.

BTW, what's the recommended PSI if we choose to simply blow out the lines this year instead of pumping pink?

I set my compressor reg at 20-30 at highest. Doesn't take much pressure, just volume.

40 PSI is the pressure I use to blow out the water lines

X5. Between 30 and 40 PSI depending upon where the needle stops when setting the pressure.

Another option is this. Don't have to worry about the compressor setting and you can use when you are at camp grounds and at home. I know at home I would probably be pushing the limits with pressure rating...

I opened up the rig and started re supplying for our next long weekend trip in a couple weeks. Also turned the mattress around. I'm always ready to load up and hit the road!

Wow, I got my question answered...in spades!

thanks y'all! Only down to 31* tonight, so with the low point drains opened up, on shore power with heaters running we should be fine. I'll discuss blowing everything out with Sneak this evening.

I am just curious, I have seen others post same thing. If you are blowing out the lines, why and where are you putting pink stuff in?
