Well I did the water winterizing portion of our camper. Love the RV antifreeze inlet port! Makes the job so easy. Drained the water tank and removed the rod. I will grab some steel wool to plug that and other holes. Sadly by this weekend snow is in the forecast so the camper will be put away.

I added hinges and a latch to the compartment below my fridge that houses the water pump and winterization port for easier access.

ID:	155063 took this panel off, what a waste of space, now we have a perfect place for the pots and pans.
I'm going to get a drawer pull to match the rest of the cabinets and put two magnetic catches to hold it in place.

Spent today cleaning the inside top to bottom. Last week I washed and polished the outside. I also pulled the wheels and hubs, cleaned and checked the brakes, cleaned inspected, and repacked the bearings and installed new seals. Good for another year.

Nice. I like that better than my pull off hatch for the water heater compartment. Maybe I will try this under the refrigerator - maybe hinges on the top as my shoe bag covers that area.

Winterized and put her to bed for this season. Blowed out and ingested pink.

Here's this season's anode. Looks like we have had pretty good water. A whole season and I never drain between trips.Click image for larger version

This week:
Interstate replaced our battery at no cost. Its 4 months old and went from 100% charged at the campground to 10% charged 2 hours later just driving home.

Today:
1. Kicked DH out of the TT at the house. He wanted to play with the radio while I was sweeping, mopping, & polishing floors for end of year deep cleaning.

2. Drained all plumbing lines & tanks.

3. Gave TT her first wash/wax. Well, half-bath. Got the door side and back end done so far. Got her in June; drove home in near-blinding rainstorm, so shes shinier than weve ever seen her!

Question: I find there is dirt imbedded in the sealant around the tail lights, windows, speakers, etc.
In the wash process, these areas of dirty sealant are not coming as clean as Id like. What to do??

Also, there are some sealant spill-blobs on the sides & bumper. How to get those off?

For the record - I did let DH back in the trailer while I washed the exterior. ;-)

Inspect at least once a year. Replace as needed.

I replace the water heater anode annually. It's cheap insurance.

I'm like you I just replace it yearly, that rod was still in great shape, but like you I'll just replace it. IMO, it seems to me the more I use 110v to hear the water the faster they go, could be caused by electrolysis, I almost always used propane this year, and when I pulled mine it was hardly eaten up not like the past years
when I used 110v 98% of time.
