Once again my good buddy Eric lends a huge helping hand with winterizing the trailer. Its mid October here in CO and the nights are getting chilly. It won’t be long until we start dropping below the freezing mark. So we gave the grey and black tanks a really good cleaning, drained the fresh water tank and drained the water lines. We also pulled the plug on the water heater. You’d think that draining the water lines would do the trick but we hooked the compressor up to the water inlet and, whoa nelly, there was still a LOT of water in the lines. But after awhile we were just getting air out of all the fixtures. I then poured a little antifreeze down each of the drains. I think I’m going to order some Fresh Cab to deter mice from moving into our rolling castle. I also saw a pretty clever mouse trap you can build with a 5 gallon bucket….maybe I’ll try that too.
I had really wished that we could get a trip under our belts, but its not going to happen. There are so many benefits to getting some time in the trailer before rolling out long term….but we don’t want to do it the easy way!
