Jayco 228 you have got to be depressed by now. Extend your season and move down here to Ontario.

If I'm moving it's going to be a little further south of you, might as well extend it to 12 months a year. Lol

Pinery proviincial park is two hours from me and its open all year for camping. I met a camper there this spring who had a trailer but tent camps in the winter. They plow the main park roads but not the campsite roads. He said he was the only camper there one time.

We have three more planned trips yet this year. Once Halloween is here, we will have to be prepared for a quick winterizing.

I use to use the air compresser for blowing out the lines until I read the instructions for the toliet in the trailer that we use to have. It said not to do it. And silly me was wondering why I had to replace valves all the time. So...read the directions.
I was reading my owners manual and it states either the RV antifreeze way or the air compressor way. Both appear to be a sufficient way of getting the same result.

Quick question...do you leave a little water in the toilet to keep the seals from drying out? If so, do you put a little antifreeze in with the water?

Not water that will freeze. Yes a little antifreeze.

I use my air compressor first then fill with antifreeze, I get away with about a gallon and a half.
