I drained one (the only one!) water line and blew out the sink drain trap & line. I carried some 'camper stuff' into the house and stored it away until spring.

It took me longer to rearrange the garage for its winter stay. I was amazed at the extra room I had in the garage when the pup was parked there. I had envisioned having a no-way-in-hell enough room scenario in my mind- but things were better than I thought!
(Editors note: An 8 ft camper in my head somehow looked like 20 feet when parked in the garage)

Winterized today after our Thanksgiving trip BUT we may still go out again in Dec. or Jan. I committed the unpardonable offense of leaving the outside shower turned on while drawing in the antifreeze. I soon realized the pump was taking too much before shutting off and lost about a quart of the pink stuff on the ground.

10,153 members and only 118 Winterize votes? Not enough poll options? Do most of our members live around the equator and therefore never heard of Winterizing? Fingers too tired to type? Any other possibilities? Boring? OK I`ll stop now.

If you guys consider blowing out the water lines, draining the hot water heater and dumping the antifreeze into the drain traps, I do it myself. Doesn't get terribly cold here, and I usually camp a few times in the winter.
