It took me about 10 min to de-winterize. Turned valves on hot water heater,put plug in and hooked up city water. Once I got hot water out of taps, all was good. Open all water valves in camper, checked for leaks while running. Kept water in grey tank till I used it last weekend. Going on 2nd outing of season next weekend.

No worries. One of the purposes of this forum is to learn and then educate others what we have learned from asking questions and from actual experiences.

I de-winterized a couple of days ago. I moved my electric heaters to the basement. When I return to my home base on 3-31 I will put them in my garage until fall.

De-winterizing done - 5 minutes.

Went camping the last two weekends so I have de-winterized and winterized twice each. Will continue to store her winterized until May. Not out of the woods for hard freezes here in Colorado just yet.

Hanging in there until early April before de-winterizing. Lots of other things to do what with Easter coming up!

The pink stuff is indeed non-toxic, but I've found it to be a terrific weed killer. If you're parked on your lawn, or over something you want to keep growing, Dump in a bucket, then put it where you want. Our stone driveway gets the drainings for weed control.
