Coach & Winter Traveling

Greetings:

This is our first year living in Colorado retired. Previously, we have been on the Gulf Coast and knew nothing about winterizing!

My question is, how many folks drive with their coach's plumbing winterized and wait to get down south before using their plumbing system again? Compared to, staying in RV parks while on the road keeping the coach warm and using the coaches plumbing?

I have read articles suggesting both methods. One article the author uses jugs of water to flush toilets etc., and waits. Another article suggests that as long as you keep the inside of the coach warm, you can use the systems.

best regards,

Dave

I think it has a lot to do with how your RV was built. Do you have an enclosed, heated wet bay? If so, put a remote wireless thermometer in the compartment and monitor. If all your plumbing is within the RV, running through closets or cabinets, it will be as safe as you will be inside the heated RV. If in doubt, carrying water in jugs for cleaning and flushing is the safest for your plumbing's health. Check with the manufacturer of your RV and ask if it is prepared for 3 of 4 season use.

^^^^^What they said! I travel all the time in very cold temperatures, including below zero temps, very doable with a little planning and knowledge of your unit.
