I guess for that short trip the dealer was willing to take the risk, but now that it's mine I don't want to
Sorry but the dealer didnt take the risk, he knew that if anything had have happened this would have been your responsibility, at that point you and your insurance would have been dishing out for any damages, once you hook anything up to your truck, it becomes your responsibility.

Several years ago I test drove a brand new chevy duelly, the salesman was guiding me back and even he didnt see it, but a 3 foot pole on their sales lot was in the way and I backed into it punching a hole in the wheel housing, the dealer wanted my license and insurance info after the fact and I refused to give him the info, after about 30 minutes of arguing with him and his manager, I just walked out, I never heard anything from him and I never set foot on his business again, neither did any of my friends and family.

We remove all food and any containers with liquid which could freeze. I also place a couple of damp-rid jars in the rv to reduce any moisture build up (from when we do our monthly visit and run the furnace).

Where do you get the damp rid jars?

Also does anyone cover their AC unit? I was reading the Jayco owners manuel last night and they recommend an AC cover, blocking off any opening including the furnace exhust and using a breathable cover? Any thoughts on these steps?

Thanks

I got them a couple years ago at an RV supplies store, but you can get them on Amazon.

I don't cover the AC or block any of the openings - but I do pay a lot for covered storage.

Propane hoses and trailer plug for lights?

Just wondering what folks do with the propane hoses after the propane tanks are taken off. Last year I wrapped then in a plastice bag and taped the bag closed.

Also what so you do with the light cord plug that runs to your tow vehicle? I did the same plastic bag and tape job but the plug had a lot of moisture in it when I opened it this spring.

We had a snowy winter and rainy spring in the Northeast!

Just leave the power cord out. Put some dielectric grease on to prevent corrosion and you will be set. Try to hang it so it faces down.

Ours is stored in a covered building on our farm but we still cover the outside openings with thick paper to help keep out spiders. A friend learned the hard way from not doing that. I take everything out of the drawers & cabinets and store in rubbermaid containers that I keep in the trailer over winter. I periodically check the camper for any sign of mice and I also use Damp rid. So far, so good!
