For some of us the camping season is over or coming to a fast close. Toward the end of the season RV'ers tend to talk to others about winterizing their units, how they do it, what they use, and for the masses that use RV antifreeze, how much.
I find it quite comical that this area is where it seems like the one up's start. It's like the old game show Name that Tune. But this is called Winterize that Trailer. It goes something like this; A small group of RV'ers are talking and someone like me says it takes 6 gallons of antifreeze to winterize my Northpoint (which it really does because I just did it today). Then a fellow RV'er comes back and says he can do his with 3 gallons. Then the other chimes in and says he can winterize in just a half gallon, or something ridiculous like that. Then you hear the saying in a game show voice, "Winterize that trailer!"
It's funny how some people become so cheap about winterizing. They have no problem spending the big dollars these things cost, yet they cheap out and buy the cheapest antifreeze they can, use as little as possible, even go to lengths of catching it in a bowl and reusing it. Today, it cost me less than $20 for a case of 6 one gallon jugs. $20 is cheap insurance compared to a broken line.
