There's a tear in my beer...

This Columbus Day Weekend will be the final trip of the season for me and the DW in our new 2015 Jay Flight 27RLS. Come Tuesday, my RV will be winterized and stored for the next “10 months” of winter we enjoy here in Western New York.

A few minor issues/clitches arose this summer with our unit. I did ask and did receive valuable and insightful information and help from many of you in this forum.

In short, I thank you!

I wish all of you the very best and as always, Happy Camping!

THE NEXT 10 MONTHS!!! In 10 months it will be August. In 6 months you can enjoy all the finger lakes and the end of April or first week of May I'll fly up to the 1,000 islands between Cape Vincent & Clayton to start DWs garden for the summer. We're originality from Rochester and had this home for 40+ years now and we always open up by the 1st week in May( a little chilly but no hard freezing).

You are right Tunce! We have been to all the places you have mentioned.

With "tongue in cheek" I said 10 months of winter since it seems at times to be that long.

Next time you are in Clayton, let me know. I'll buy you a beer at O'Brien's Tavern.

Sadly, our last trip will be at the end of next week for our annual Halloween camp. Then she gets winterized and tucked in for a long winter's nap. :'(

I've tipped my share at O'Brien's going back to the 70s and my last one was this past August. Going back to that neck of the woods is like time warp. In Cape Vincent the post office is just 1 room and in the Bank the teller knows your name and never asks for ID.

We usually spend our last trip of the year at James Island County Park, which coincides with the first trip of the new year as we come home on Jan 1st.

I recognized your humor immediately. We've had vacation property just west of Adirondack Park for several years. There are 2 seasons: Snow & Blackfly. Each lasting 10 months.

Further south, (I live and work within 2 hours of NYC) the trailer has to be winterized as long as there is danger of frost. It seems like there are only 3 months above freezing.

Our last scheduled trip starts October 17th, we have gotten our moneys worth since our May purchase. My dilemma after that is when to winterize. Winters here can be mild and being an old Upstate NY boy myself I love them for getting out and hiking, back yard fires etc. There are tons of campgrounds that stay open year round but a stretch of freezing weather can come hard and fast. I'll probably err on the side of caution and keep a close eye on long range forecasts.
Does anyone have any tips for keeping the trailer safe from freezing damage, but able to use on a whim during the winter, if so I'd love to hear.
Edit: I got your humor about NY winters immediately, especially if your over there near Lake Ontario and that lake effect snow!

How cold do you normally get? and for how long? In GA, I might just blow out all the lines and only have a jug of antifreeze just incase you get a really cold snap. We have already had frost, but no extended cold weather yet. As long as the days are warm, I will not winterize, and the nights do not get below the mid 20's, which might be the end of the month.
