GREEN BAY, WI – It’s the time of year, if you live in a cold weather climate and have to shut your RV/Travel Trailer or Camper down for a couple of months… winter. I know people love winter, but us RVers who are not full time on the road chasing warm weather, this time of the year… well pardon my French… sucks.
Last year, I stored my RV here in Green Bay and for the most part it went well.
It was a process and one that I was glad I did last year. When I got my rig up and running this year, the work I did in the fall of last year paid off so I was happy about that.
This year though, I’ve decided to do it a little differently. Normally I do most of my RV work at “Bayside Outdoors.” They’ve been good to me and I enjoy working with them. This year as I started to looking getting ready to winterize, they had a full package where they shut her down and do the complete winterization and then in the spring all I have to do is bring it back and they do a “Wake Up.” So this year, that’s what I decided to do for the internal systems in the RV.
Now I still went through the whole process of: laying out dryer sheets, putting down Irish Spring, dropping down peppermint tea bags, Moth balls – but this year in a bag and cotton balls dipped in peppermint oil and water. All of these steps, worked last year for me, so we’ll see how it goes this year.
The bottom line is, shutting down your RV for the winter is rough and it’s not getting any easier… how long until 2022 again?
How do you prep/shut down your rig for the winter. Let me know in the comments below, I would love to see how others are doing it!
