Hi my name is Cindy and I live in Illinois. I'm new to this site, but wanted to join other RV's owners for advice on this new venture in my life. I will be purchasing a 1991 Coachmen, do not know the details yet of length, etc., here shortly. It is permanently parked on a lake lot in a little town not far from where I live permanently. I am in no way an expert on owning a travel trailer and would love to hear from people who have a trailer permanently parked and how to avoid unnecessary problems. Like I said, I am just learning. My trailer is already hooked up to city electricity and water, but have no idea on what to do when it's not occupied. Any advice would be greatly appreciated in the cold winter months coming up. I plan to be at my new "little home" during the winter probably about once a week, but the freezing issue of the pipes worries me to death. I hope there is someone out there who lives in cold winter weather who are in my same situation.

Welcome to RV ownership and this site. I anticipate you will get some helpful responses to your situation. Twenty years ago I had a travel trailer kept at a lake campground, but I shut it down for the winters.
You say its hooked to city water and electricity..is it also hooked up to sewer?
I would think trying to maintain heat in a trailer..even minimal heat..will be an expensive challenge.
I will follow your post..there is likely some smart and experienced folks you have found a "best way".
Good luck!
