I have to laugh at the snowfall projections of 36" being too much to handle. We average 120" a year and other than our seven foot in one week nightmare a couple of years ago, we have not lost a day of work in over 25 years. We are hardy souls here in Western NY and, hey, all that snow keeps the riff raff out!


Didn't keep Hillery outta NY. Oops, shouldn't have said that out loud.

One advantage of living in Southern California is that I don't have to bother with winterizing.

We use our MH year round, but do have inside heated storage. Therefore we never winterize. In NE Oklahoma it might be 20 deg F one day and 70 deg F the next during the winter. It's nice to take advantage of those days.

We always head south for a month or so in Feb just to knock the chill off!!

Had out last trip this past weekend, going to winterize in the next two weeks or so. Looking forward to our first trip next year, going out to Jayco to get several spider cracks repaired around the windshield, That will take place the week of 4/10. NJ to IN to NJ, then it's off to Yellowstone in late July through mid August, then we heading to DC for 4 or 5 days, after that down to the tip of the Delmarva. We have a busy year scheduled next year!

But for now all I can do is winterize, and play with the coach in my spare time over the winter months. It was sad returning from our tip to Lancaster knowing the coach will be put to rest till April!

So it begins

We just took our MH to our cave storage in Wampum PA. We call him "Kaboom" affectionately. It was a devastating and depressing afternoon as we shed a tear at letting "our big pain in the a**" have a long winter's nap. Sniff! I miss him already. Sniff!

Got ours washed, plan on winterizing tomorrow. Headed to RGV 12/26. Normally would just put in storage shed and use a couple light bulbs to keep from freezing between now and then. However, need to have some work done, replace the leveling system in the coming weeks, so better to winterize, than trust the mechanics to take care of it.

Thanks everyone...

Pretty cool to read so many varieties of how 'winter' is perceived and spent by other RVers.

Thanks for sharing your stories on this thread. Keep'em comin'!

As for us, we're anxiously awaiting the spring…

We are going to winter over in Mesa AZ or thereabout next year. We'll set up camp and explore the SW in our Jeep TJ. I'm sick and tired of all the rain here in the PNW. We look forward to the great escape. Life is good and we are blessed we have the means to pull this of this off.

What a sweet set up! How wide is your RV covered parking? I assume you have your Toad in the same building. I'd give my eye teeth for that MH barn. You're a lucky man.

My shop building is at my house and is 60' wide x 40' deep. I modified one of the bays to provide adequate height for a 14' tall door and 55' depth with a 15' MH bay width. The doors are all 12 'wide. Works good with heat and air.

We have a 3 car garage for the toad.
