I'll be down that way in a couple of weeks. A little cold doesn't bother me much as long as it's dry.

Yup. It's over. Winterizing this weekend then indoor storage before Halloween. It's funny reading these posts. Here (Ontario) we're wrapping up the season and yet in many states in the U.S. south, they're just starting.

I remember those days of having to winterize and put the RV away for six months each winter. I'd go into a blue funk weeks before that anticipating our last outing, typically the last weekend in October for us.

Now retired, we just point the nose south and move on. Keep plugging away and saving those shekels and your day will come to.

I'm glad our old girl is easy to winterize. I turn off the pump and drop the potable water on the way home from each late season trip and when I hit the sani dump and drain then I am almost done. Add some antifreeze to the drains and we are good to go next camping urge. We spend a lot of weekends storm watching along the west coast of Vancouver island and the furnace keeps us quite warm. Nothing quite like watching the waves crash on the shore while playing cards with the couple who usually accompany us.

No phones, lotsa food, no rent, I don't need no cigarette, is a great way to spend a week or two.

my winterizing consists of,

empty all tanks....

fill fresh water with water and some bleach/ about quarter cup
leave for about an hour and then dump and leave drain open for winter.

bypass water heater and drain.

run pump by drawing antifreeze into system and running all faucets to get the pink water coming out.

flush toilet and leave a good amount of pink water in the bowl.

disconnect battery.

although I am hooking up solar to keep it charged this winter and I'll see how that goes...

I used to live north west of you in Sault Ste Marie so I know your angst.

I moved west to vancouver island BC about 20 something years ago and never regretted it. The very west cost of the island seldom if ever gets any appreciable snowfall and we can camp at will ihn some pretty beautiful places.

Looking forward to heading south in early January and playing mutant in southern Arizona.
