Going seasonal

So, we are going seasonal. It will be set up on the site year round. What do I need to do? We are looking at a couple different sites, and not sure if we can run genny. If so, I would obviously run it every month. What about the engine. Change oil on site and leave it? I would have made sure gas was treated for ride there. Will have levelers down, should I increase tire pressure?

What an I missing?

Also, anyone know of a screen room for the awning that has a real door? I have seen them at campgrounds, but not online anywhere.

When we are setup for an extended time, I run the genny & the engine during the afternoon or late morning hours when most of my nieghbors are gone or out doing something, usually no one still sleeping. I do this in parks even if they say no gennys running & I have so far never been told anything about it. Just be sure to be courtious about when you run these engines. I have also changed my oil at the CG. I use a very large piece of cardboard to layon & catch any oil that might miss the pan. Then take the used oil to the auto parts store for recycling. As far as tire pressure goes I have never done anything different. I always fill the fuel tank as close to the CG as possible & add fuel stabilizer at that time. Any free space in your tank is an invitation for condensation. I try to park all my tires on wood off the dirt or gravel. Not always possible, where we are now I only have 3 wheels on wood. I try not to fully extend my jacks either, so the need for building up a ramp for the tires to sit on. I have an extend a stay propane line & use 2 20lb propane bottles so I can unhook one when it empties & take it & get it filled in the car or truck. This way I never have to break down & take the MH to have the propane tank filled. We do switch over to the large tank when we are away for an extended time. We once had the power go out & the refrig used up the 20lb tank & we lost all our food in the frig. The large tank will take much longer to empty out.
Hope this helps

I have a "Patty-O-Room", It has a hard door available for it. I don't have the door but know it is available. Got mine at Campingworld.

I have searched high and lo and can find no mention of a hard door kit for the Patty-O-Room. Gonna have to write A&E. Same with the Carefree rooms. In one part they mention the door, but not in options, and a search of the net produces nada.
