Labor day has passed, ... kids are back in school, ....

'bout this time every year we take to winterizing the trailer ....

Duning temps are just about ready and its just about time to hit the sands !!!!!!



Oddly enough, some folk here at iRV2 (up in the northern territories) are bound for trouble in how they winterize their rigs.
I don't know what good it is to drain hot-water tanks, and pump antifreeze into lines.
That can't be tasting good. Whats up with that??


I'd think installing a 2nd AC unit and checking the tightness of water lines would be more appropriate.
... making sure the icechests tossed in the back of the trailer all have lids that still fit.
Rotating the beer stock. (I found two warm 12'rs in my fridge left over from Barton Flats.)
Packing the mister, the fans, those football caps that hold two can of beer and have a cheesehead on them,
a couple cans of fix-a-flat,
sunscreen, ....


Winter is almost here !!!!

Yeah, here's my winterizing list...

1. Install paddle tires on the everything.
2. Put a jacket in the trailer.
3. Charge up dustbuster.
4. New bottle of Capt Morgan.

Hmmmm....not much different than my summerizing list.

You guys are killin' me.

Summer was too short and the nights are getting chilly.

Soon, I'll be pumping the "pink stuff" into the water lines and hibernating for three months.

Naw, you just need to park you rig in SoCal and come out to use it each month. There's just something wrong with a NV resident having to winterize.

Dave,
I have always wondered what these things are:

What size of dogs live up north anyway??? WOW !!
I guess i heard that they are called Snow Shovels but i don't have a clue what that means.?!
Do you think i should get one for my trailer for when i camp all winter out in the desert wearing nothing but shortsleeves??

Snow shovel? I though it was a sand shovel. Works great for getting all the sand out of the trailer at the end of the weekend, and as you mentioned, for picking up after the beloved K9.

tehe tehe tehe!!! Oh....Mickey!!!

I don't know 'bout yose guys!! But I DO know I've never seen a snow shovel- I'm going with Eric on that one- must be a sand shovel. No way we'd want to disturb any snow if we got it down here...if we did get some, it'd prolly be gone before we got the shovel out of the shed!

Now excuse me while the only thing I've got to do is turn down the sprinkler system and adjust the solar panels...

Boy, you guys live a sheltered life.

Lets see now, in winter you go camping, in summer you go camping, you don't have to worry about cold weather, Hummm, seems to me, all you have to worry about is the ground opening up and swallowing your whole rig, or, owning ocean front property.

Wow Wes, that white stuff is beautiful! Can't wait. I'm already thinking of hot chocolate on Christmas Eve at Crater Lake. Beautiful, just beautiful. And the guys down south have probably had Christmas stuff in the stores since August like in Florida. Yuk!!

i have to admit, those were some beautiful pics Wes. And i see you snuck in an action shot of your ol' tractor. Nice.
And that Crater Lake scenario was nice as well. I bet that place is just about 2nd to none during the winter months.

Might be time to see if I can put snow studs in my BFG A/T's.
