No, you don't have to worry about it. I don't drain my HW tank until we close up for the season. Then give it a good flush with one of these: http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...k-rinser/49070

BTW, still waiting for some pics of your site.

As default, I do NOT drain my seasonal site TT's HW tank. Only drain it during winteritzation tasks.

But.... your local water may be much different. If draining the H/W tank eliminates smell or bad taste, then sure. I'd drain it (if that works for your site). But as a general rule, the seasonal site H/W tank doesn't need to be drain - when you leave the site...

Note: If water smells are that bad from your H/W tank or from your TT taps, perhaps installing a Water Filter system (on your main intake water line - like some folks install in their stick homes) might work great as well. Remember... Each seasonal site is different and sometimes, one must install unique environmental correction devices as well. re: Water pressure valves, surge protection and Water Filter systems.

Hope this helps as well....

I know! Completely my fault....we've been waiting for some decent weather. I'd like to get pictures with the awning out and some sun shining through the windows so you can see the interior. We've been pretty happy with everything so far and the camper is awesome. We've only been able to sit outside once and then for just about an hour before the storm and tornado warnings hit! We did manage a campfire but the storms put a quick end to that too. Keep your fingers crossed the weather holds out for this weekend. Mid 70's and partly cloudy - I'll take it! How's your weather been up north? I hate to complain about the rain and cold when so many in the south are dealing with much, much worse. BTW, your departure checklist is great, I use it every time! Hopefully, things will slow down some and we can get back on the boards. We're also hoping they have the internet at the campground working soon - that's an ideal time to read and respond to everything.

I think we'll leave the water in the HWH this week and see how it goes. We'll only be gone four days before we go back. We just had one experience with the first camper where we forgot to drain the water and it smelled awful. But, we didn't have the filtering system back then so we'll see if that makes a difference.

Spike99, thank you for the ideas. We do have a filtering system between the water source and the camper and it's worked well. I appreciate your willingness to share!

Smile Wiscampsin Seasonal Site

Where is your seasonal site in WI? Sounds like a wonderful place.

We have done the seasonal camping for 7 years and are now selling the camper, bought a new towable and are hitting the road to see what there is to see in other parts of this great country. We loved having a Place to go as often as we could, but want to move around as long as our health dictates we can. We're excited!

We got a seasonal this summer at a town campground, we got the resident rate because i have family in the town. $300 may 16-sept 30 no electric or sewer but a pristine adirondack lake and beach with tennis courts, playgrounds and a concession stand and very clean new restrooms. I am hoping to get a Honey Wagon to come by and empty our tanks...not sure how much that will cost but it will be worth it. Not sure if we will be bringing our generator or just hook up to the truck when battery is low...there are water hook ups near by. This summer is going to be the best!

We have a seasonal site in Az for the winter and we have our river lot in Idaho for the summer. It's a lot less hassle leaving the trailer in one place. Our Jayco is in Az and our smaller trailer is in Idaho.
