Did a ďjust in caseĒ sort of winterization. Just blew out the lines but wasnít real thorough. Supposed to briefly fall below freezing here. Amazing how much water these things hold after a trip.

And found I may be due for batteries. Went to raise the front end and lost all 12v after a few seconds till I reset the batteries. Found the batteries to be at 12.4 in series. I suspect one was lower but didnít test individually. Save all that for the weekend when itís warmer.

Put plastic bag around the fridge vent and another up into the stove hood vent, checked one last time inside to make sure all the cabinet and fridge doors were open. Gave "her" one last hug!

Put 60 gallons of fresh water in the tank, tested the furnace and the AC, added air to the tires, and turned on the refrigerator. Leaving for Quartzsite this weekend. Weather in the mid 80ís daytime, 50ís at night. No antifreeze for usÖ

I’m a new owner to a new 22rb. I have the 12volt fridge, but my model year still offered the 3 way fridge, so I have the big black fridge vent cover on the outside, but the space where you’d find 3 way fridge components is empty and has been finished off with unfinished luan. I wondered if this combination of open vent and raw luan made that space vulnerable to moisture. I was thinking of ways to block the vent. I read your comment and now you have given me the good idea of putting a bag around it and reinstalling. Also, it’ll serve as deterrent to the hornets in early spring.

Thank you!

All I could do was glance at it a few times undercover while outdoors doing a few chores. She wanted to put Christmas lights up today and I said no not till after Thanksgiving. I will regret that I know. The weather will probably turn bad real soon and I will hear I told you so. It has happened before.

Hopefully this will last a few more years. I saw no evidence of leaks. I scrubbed the Eternabond with a scotch pad before priming. We are headed out Monday for our first trip of 2023.
Looks great Norty! Great job!

You're doing it like my mom taught me and her mom taught her: Only way to really get a floor (or roof) clean is on your hands and knees, a good terry towel, hot water and soap!

My Grammy would say, if you're not stiff and sore when you're done, you didn't do it well enough!

Aww..that's sad.

I spent today, chilly day here in CT, be-bopping around the camper. Went out, turned on the furnace, let it get all warmed up. Went in and hung out, turned on radio, placed some Command hooks and a paper towel holder. Looked around to consider what I'd put and where.

My sad day is coming. I ordered THE COVER a few days ago and it'll be here on Wednesday.

Glad you saw that, has worked for me every time I put her away for the winter. One other thing I do is use bronze wool in any potential entry points to deter our little rodent pests.

Drained the water system at all of the low point drains. Getting ready to winterize.

Put a piece of rigid Styrofoam in there and paint the wood with outdoor paint or truck bed coating to waterproof it

Moved it over to our new home a few miles from the old one. Iím excited to have it right next to the house, instead of down the street in an RV yard. So much nicer for winterizing, packing and doing odd fixes. And no more onerous HOA to worry about! I have the luxury of an RV carport but it isnít tall enough for the Jayco (just the boat trailer). But it will sit nicely in front of it behind the fence.

Congratulations. I would love to be in the position of having the TT at home to play with whenever I want!
