Burrrrr from North Georgia this morning. 18 degrees F. Winterized to the max but I still need to fill my diesel tank up on MH with #1. My first winter having MH behind the house for the winter. I will have to observe any condensation that may occur inside the MH as to whether or not to put some heat on the very cold mornings or not. Have it under a nice shed, but won't protect from the temps. Any other things you may could add for me to watch for much appreciated. Thanks!!

Oh well, it's finally winter here at zero. At least it isn't Saranac Lake at -12
We have nowhere to go so will do S&B 'projects' so we can drag the 5er out in early April and buck the tide of those heading North

twinboat,
Sounds like a great place to be this time of year, The temps are great. Don't know it to be a fact or not, but I heard the lowest temps in the Keys was somewhere around 49 one time. Enjoy the weather there, I heard you have to get reservations way ahead to get a good spot in Keys during Winter months.

I've heard that to. We store the MH and winter on our 35 ft trawler, out in Boot Key Harbor, Marathon.

$320.00 a month for a storm proof mooring. Just need a dinghy.

Reading the latest posts on this thread are starting to make me feel good about Chicago (and that takes a lot). 18 degrees this morning, but it will be in the 40's in a couple of days.

To be honest If the MH is stored all winter it doesn't matter what the fuel is. Diesel will not be ruined if it gels and then gets warm, It will simply ungel. It's only if you think you will need to start the MH in the coldest part of winter that you need to worry about gelling. treating with fungicide however is very important prior to storage.

You should be more concerned about the water lines way, way more than your diesel.

Thanks super7pilot,
This is the first I've heard of the treatment for fungicide. Are you talking about a additive for the diesel?
Thanks!!

twinboat,

That sounds like a winner. Price is sure right. Have read on this subject some and always thought to be interesting. Just wondering did you pick the username' twinboat' because of the trawler you own? Just a interesting approach to wintering. Have fun!!
