For those of us still "working for the man" up in the cooler climates, you would think April 1st would be a good time to de-winterize the coach. Gee, I wish! Weather report sez possible rain/snow mix, with lows in the mid-20s. Boy, am I ready for Ms. Winter to leave Illinois!

Any of you other northern IRV2'ers plan to de-winterize soon?

Oh, to be in Branson in July sound so great now!

April 1st was even early for me when I lived north of Pittsburgh,so I can certainly understand how it'd still be early in Illinois...

I solved all those problems for the most part by keeping the rig south of all that cold stuff...

That trip to Nappanee in January sure messed THAT plan up though as it happened to be right when Mother Nature dumped a bunch of that white stuff on Indiana...

Not a Newmar owner but topic applies to many.

I agree, bring on Branson.

I have an appointment with my dealer in Conway, NH on April 3rd for state inspection and a few other things that I need done before our trip to FL at the end of April.

Was so looking forward to dewinterizing but now I see that the 40 mile drive may be thru wet snow / ice mix.

Well, I did get out and wash the MH this morning! I just finished and it started raining - but, that is ok, at least is was not snow. Plus, it provided a nice rainwater rinse....

While some of you are turning on your air, we may be turning on our furnace. At least, we'll be enjoying warm temps in about a month or so.... maybe.
