With Winterising Upon Us In The North

Don't forget to leave fridge and freezer doors ajar when switched off and emptied. Stinky stinky at start up otherwise.

Don't forget to remove all liquids and check every cupboard and drawers. One spring start up found exploded case of grape pop kids had put where normally I don't keep consumables - they had opened up like a tin of sardines swelling with freezing = major clean up and staining.

Also double check removed all potatoes and onions when leaving in storage for any length of time.

If camping in cold weather and the sewer hose gets an ice plug, do NOT under any circumstances attempt to "clear" the blockage by hitting said hose with a hammer....

Not exactly relevant but worth telling. Had a mobile home when first married, on a really cold winter night in Indiana we left a faucet trickle so it would not freeze. Well the drain line to the sewer connection froze solid, so I had a 12 foot by 4 inch diameter ice bar. So in my young, bright mind I stuck it on the tailpipe of my car set it on fast idle and ate breakfast. Came back outside to a 12 foot long melted pasta noodle.
