It'll be a while for me too. I'm on the "Freedom 98" plan.

Perfect thread. I used to use just the pink stuff but I think I will be setting everything up to blow it out this year.

For winter storage does anybody store with the leveling jacks down? I'm thinking not fully down but just enough take some weight off the suspension and tires for the winter. Anybody ever considered or done this?

Yes sir! Taking a lot of weight off the tires is always a good idea and its recommended by the tire manufacturers. You are also going to want to place a mat under the tires to disconnect them from the ground when parked on asphalt or cement. It's not going to hurt the jacks.

Many store with jacks-down just like camping. Dumping air-bags lowers coach about 6 inches so many others put blocks under the jacks about 3 inches lower than the jacks. Dump the air bags and the coach will sit the jacks right down on the blocks without extending. Don’t forget, you don’t have to hit the level button, just the dump air-bags when doing the latter.

Is it more common to leave the antifreeze in the lines or drain that too for the winter?

Are you running your furnace, as that is a heat source for the basement and wet bay? I think you would be better off with a 100 watt light bulb in the wet bay than the xmas lights.

We winterized today......I put on shorts and a t-shirt and washed the coach. Oh yeah.....the winterizing part, my wife exchanged the cotton bed sheets for flannel bed sheets as the weather on our trip this week will be in the 70's and as low as 35 at night.

Sorry......I've been RVing for 45 years and never had to winterize. Heck it was in the low 80's last week.

You should easily be able to run the furnace and the light bulb on 30 amps. Does your Travel Supreme have a gas furnace or Aqua-hot heat? You shouldn't need the electric heater with the furnace. That heater could blow the breaker.
