Winterizing the trailer

Question

anchor man

We bought park model trailer this Summer and are approaching our first winter with it. What is the typical way people close these down for the winter? Blow out the pipes and add antifreeze? Not real sure

Thanks

It's not too difficult.

Drain the fresh water tank, open your low-point drains and all taps. If your trailer is fairly new, a blow-out may not be necessary.

Drain the hot water heater. Hopefully you'll have a line bypass at the water heater. You don't want to run antifreeze into the water heater.

Don't forget the outside shower if you have that feature.

Make sure your waste tanks are cleaned and drained.

Pour three to four gallons of RV antifreeze into the freshwater tank. Run the taps, starting at the farthest from the pump until you get antifreeze. Let at least a pint run into the drain traps plus a little extra to go into the tanks.

Clean inside and outside as needed. Remove food to discourage rodents.

Put new baking soda boxes in fridge and freezer.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.
