Default End of the 2019 camping Season for us

Drained the water lines and blew them out with air compressor. Added Pink anti freeze and put mouse bait / repellent in the storage bins.

Now we wait for spring, anybody else ready for cold weather?

Yup, I winterized my trailer last week. It was pretty simple and took only about 15 minutes now that I know what I'm doing. Fortunately, my mouse proofing has worked beautifully, so I only have to worry about the water system.

We easily drop down to about 15 degrees here in the mountains of Aridzona, so I have to be careful of outside water.

We're lucky, here in SW FL winterizing means extra time to do the maintenance and incorporate new mods. Snowbirds fill our parks a year in advance, but we do have a few hidden parks we can head to.

Hello Arti,
I looked at the picture you posted
and wondered if the solar
panel was providing some
power as part of your wintering
regimen, perhaps like providing
some ventilation and internal
air circulation?

The solar panel is to keep the battery charged during the winter.

Actually that is a good idea to use it for other things, A small inverter and a noise maker to keep the mice out comes to mind, Ventilation would be worth thinking about I have a small 12 volt fan so all I would need to do is plug it in.
