Winter in the RV

Hi all

Happy RV-ing and Happy Thanksgiving

wish we were "on the road again"

just came back from great time in Sebastian River Inlet FL

make bunch of costly mistakes, yet again.....

Last year christmas made a bunch too

Please can anyone tell us best way to winter camp in GA (around ATLanta area) by that I mean do we connect to dump(septic) or wait until we are ready to leave site and dump then - my best guess would be temps in high 30's by day and high 20's at night

Last year our septic and water lines were "popsicles"

Should we draw water on demand? or fill our water tanks when we get there and then dis connect from water
we are not winterized and will be in this area for aprox 3-4 days

any suggestions would be a great help

MerryDM

MerryDM,

Just keep an eye on the weather and if the temperature is going to go below freezing disconnect the water and sewer lines and store them. I don't know if your RV has heated cargo bays but if it does it should keep the water and waste tanks from freezing.

We live 80 miles south of Atlanta and all I do to winterize our class A is drain the tanks.

Good Luck,
Jon

+1 Just make sure that you put enough water in the fresh water tank to meet your needs overnight before you stow your water hose for night.
