In 7 years, we've yet to stay in a CG enroute to FL. Just too much hassel each evening and morning. When we had our old C, we also de-winterized when it got warm enough.

Since we got our A (heated basement) I'll do that the night before and put 1/3 water in the tank. We use to do a marathon run to get to warm weather and only took 3 days. Now we take about 6 days and has made a more relaxing trip.

Our experience with PA has not been very good. At least in Fl during prime season.

We have always used Pilot/FJ for overnite stays while on the road. Walmart maybe on just three occasions.
