Seems as though luck is on my side, Winterized last week, genset oil changed, PM service done today, oh ya clean all out stuff out and cleaned inside last week as well. Now for the luck, Seems they are talking sunny and 60 degrees tomorrow so I can wash it before taking it into storage. Love it when a plan comes together.

p.s. wife had many less pairs of shoes for me to unload this year than last. Only two large bags. lol

Fully charged all 4 plus 2 batteries.
I pulled the 4 6 volt house batteries out at home, then drove to the storage lot.
When there, I found that while the Power Gear leveler control panel runs off the chassis batteries, the pump itself seems to run off the coach batteries.... which were 2 miles away in my garage.
So I just dumped the air, pulled the chassis batteries out, sealed her up, and called it good.

Also took a few to do an oil change in the wrangler, and put the hardtop on.

Sleep tight my Knight, see you in the spring!!!

Sorry but we are just getting started to hit the road. weather just right for us here in Florida.

When I put my rig in storage during the winter it only involves setting the thermostats differently. Living on the Gulf Coast has it's perks.

DFR I don't know what you mean by cold storage but I wouldn't feel to badly about $230 for 6 months. My bill runs $900 for each six months to store my rig.

What is this term "Winterize" being from South Louisiana this is a foreign term and I'm not sure I know what you speak of.

Dang! That's a great price for inside. I'd take that in a heartbeat. Cheapest I found was approx. $100/mo & that was 2.5hrs away.

the best decent & secure outdoor storage around northern Cincinnati is about $50 a month. indoor storage OUCH is about $200 plus per month. i did find the county fairgrounds indoor storage from Nov till end of April for $50 a month, but very limited access. so it sits outdoors.....
