Winter living/skirting

Hi folks, I recently purchased a 2015 rbok and live in it white working up in northern NC/Alberta. I have a permanent site for it with all hook ups, any tips on best way to skirt it and prepare it for winter?
Any tips/tricks/suggestion would be helpful.
Thanks.

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new trailer.

I'm sure there are some Canadian TT owners with experience in this area.

If the park/campground where you are at will let you, I've seen numerous people purchase 2" foam insulation panels and cut them to fit right under the sidewalls. Also as Jmooney said get a heated water hose. I would also rig up 3" sewer pipe in lieu of a hose and then only dump when the tanks (grey and black) get full when its's below 32 f/ 0 c. Or use 4" pipe and run the sewer hose through it.

Several years ago a neighbor wintered over in his TT while finishing his house. He used straw bales with rigid foam board behind them. I don't know how that worked out for him and his wife, but they stuck it out. And we get -10 and lower from time to time beginning in November.
