I think getting a total drain from the water heater is best checked by removing the plug. Some will drain completely and some will still leave a gallon or so.

Seann, I think that all border stations on our northern border should be closed and the people that man them get sentenced to work the southern border. The border patrol employees are rude to us too. They all need to be replaced with people that think and act differently.

The boarder is a 5 minute drive from my house. Prior to 9/11 we use to cross the boarder several times a week to get gas and milk at a dairy farm. The boarder guards would get to know us and just wave us thru. I ve always considered it a privilege to go into the US and still do. Now it is a much more serious affair to cross the boarder as we all know.

I agree that it is a privilege to be allowed to enter the USA... but to be treated like a criminal when I am bringing money into an area... strange thing is I find it easier to enter the USA from Mexico than from Canada, and I am always treated better by the boarder agents in the South..

Funny, I encountered a jerk at Los Algodones last winter. I wisely kept my mouth shut but it was not easy.

Only one question, do you bother to blow out your lines after draining?? I usually blow out my lines and pump non toxic antifreeze through all the lines. Would be afraid of just using low point drains in my unit. Been winterizing my trailer this way since 1968.

Yeah - my low points don't get all the water as good as I would like. In the early season when it is just getting below freezing overnight and I am still going to camp I generally just blow out as insurance. When the hard winter comes I blow out and do anti-freeze. Lots of folks just pump antifreeze, but I have found that if I blow them clear first I use significantly less antifreeze.

To me, if it's not full of pink stuff it isn't winterized.
