So if I live in Mississippi and plan to do some winter camping, I don't need to do all this winterizing, do I? this is my first RV and there is way tooooo much to learn. Thank goodness for these forums.

It depends on your winter weather. If it rarely gets below freezing, you will probably be OK by just draining all your water lines and water heater - and pump all water from your lines and pump by turning the pump ON to purge all water. But to be safe, ask your local RV dealer. Not having lived in your area, I cannot say for certain.

A last item here, leave your toilet lid up! Sometimes it can get pretty moldy in the toilet over the winter.

Charlene, That's absolutely right. That's why so many of us come south in the Winter. Cold spells hit Mississippi, and there are times you will need to be conscious of the pipes freezing just, like your home. During those times just keep it minimally heated (above 32) and you'll have no problems. The water drains, we are talking about won't be a problem for you because of the ground warmth.

Yes, forums like this are fantastic.

That list is pretty complete but the one thing I will add and I believe to be the most important is moisture control. If you have vent covers, crack them and put some Damp rid in variuos places as well as opening any cabinets you can. I usually put a bucket in each sink or a secondary catch basin in case of freezing.

The cold months can create a lot of moisture inside these units and lead to mold growth fast with the flutuations. Especially if you button it up tight.

Now back to our original broadcast...I leave my kitchen sink mixing valve open for any expansion.

I might also add - keep a gallon or two of RV/Marine anti-freeze handy. (It might be hard to find in your area.) It is not too expensive - I pay less than $3.00/gallon around here. Besides draining your water lines and keeping faucets open during cold snaps, fill the drain traps with the anti-freeze, to prevent freezing there, too.

Also - a lot of people forget about the short piece of hose from the city water connection that Tee's into the water supply line after the pump outlet. If you don't purge that hose of water, it can freeze - especially since it is connected to the outside of the trailer.

To do that, turn the pump ON, then push IN on the little check valve in the center of the city water connection - where you attach the water hose. (You will have to remove the brass strainer first.) But stand to the side when you do that, or you will get a short shower as water comes gushing out. Hold the check valve IN until water stops flowing. Then be sure the check valve is properly seated when done.
