Winter Protection

How do you protect your RV in winter?

We get snow and freezing temps. Tarp shelters under $1000 tend to not survive the weather and winds. Steel ones are $5,000+ with prep work etc.

Anyone use a simple custom cover - not a generic blue tarp - ? They run around $200. But do they offer enough protection? We did use one on our Rpod trailer but that unit was much cheaper then our B class.

Thanks for any thoughts. G

I live in Toronto ... we get the snow, freezing rain & cold temps every winter. Other than winterizing the plumbing system, nothing else is done. Just give it a wash and wax in spring before setting out on my first trip of the season.

Thanks, Steve. Toronto is harsher than Vancouver area.

This is my first winter with the Era. I bought a Winnebago cover for it on the auction site. Paid $256 though.

We get some bad cold/snow here in Michigan also.

Adios, cowboy70

We used a cover on our fiver for 3 years, bought another and used it on the MH last year and will again this year. We get howling winds, freezing temps and snow here in the mountains of western PA.

Winterizing a Unity 24MB

Anybody have experience with a 2017 Unity 24MB with the new Truman tankless water heater? There are 5 valves under the kitchen sink, adjacent to the water heater.
