I think I jumped the gun

I think I will wait until after Thanksgiving next year to winterize. Last weekend would have been a good one to be in a campground somewhere and this upcoming holiday is going to be equally as good it appears.

Not around here. 5F the other morning. Plus we have several inches of snow on the ground. Supposed to be 32F today.

The best way to winterize is take it to Yuma AZ.

I've been in Yuma in the winter, and I agree that would be a good solution. Got this little work issue though. Someday....

Winterizing, when you get the hang of it and are set up to do it easily, will only take 10-15 minutes tops. This not only lets you do it at the last second, but also lets you go when/if you feel like it. Then there's no excuse not to go when you want....

I am winterizing mine right after turkey day by heading to Texas. Unfortunately its for work reasons. But any excuse to hit the road is a good one.

Work issue? my goodness, isn't that a dirty word. Not supposed to use dirty words on these forums.

Just a thought. Total cost for a year of indoor storage$3000.00 includes electricity and heat. That's about 250 a month.
You can come and go whenever you want, do maintenance inside, take advantage of many opportunities to just take off.
No winterizing, or dewinterizing. Less worries about tire rot, critter invasions, etc.

Just my .02

Last year up this way it was below freezing already so better to be safe. I'll agree with ahicks in that it really doesn't take long at all to dewinterize and something the DW can do while you're on your way somewhere. Winterize again once you get back
