Ready for winter

Just finished winterizing today and put on the Adco cover...I know, I know they say it isn't meant to go over the tongue but I couldn't resist.

That is the "universal" cover for trailers up to 20 feet. There was enough material to go over the tongue. I used pool noodle pieces on all the gutter spouts, the folded antenna, and the front of the tongue.

Along with all the standard winterizing steps performed (thanks largely to this forum) I also put it on jack stands for the health of the tires. Only thing I don't have in there is a dehumidifier, but I am monitoring it with a remote weather station and will probably put one in there at some point. The nice thing about the Adco is the zip up panel over the door for access while covered.

Hated to put it away, but glad I'm finished with it.

Great looking cover! We sadly put ours into winter hybernation mode yesterday. We put some dehumidifing containers in that DW picked up at WalMart. Been using them for years and they work well.

We are hoping to get out at least once more yet. Bought an Adco cover for this winter and have antifreeze ready to go.

It looks good. I have always worried about wind and rubbing of the cover on the trailer.

I plan on winterizing next weekend. We winterize the water lines and such, but will continue to use the TT all winter.
