RE: Winterizing

My sequence is Isolate water heater tank. Add suction hose by water pump and change the valve there to the hose. put hose in pink fluid. Back inside, turn on pump. Open cold tap closest to water heater (Kitchen sink for me) and run until pink flows. Repeat with cold tap. Do other taps -- shower, bathroom sink, toilet. Go outside and drain black and gray tanks. Close drains. Add a bit of pink to all the drains, just to make sure. Drain Fresh water tank. Take off suction hose and change valve. Drain water heater. You will have to change the bottle of pink once or twice during this.

RE: Umbilical cord markers/reminders

I use those plastic clamps that are like spring clothespins. And a key tag label. I put it on the driver's visor when stopped and clamp it to the hose or power cord or whatever when I store it. I also have tags for propane, refrigerator, furnace, TV aerial, cable TV, water heater, and back door.

RE: Fresh Water Drain

Ours has a tap at the back corner on the driver's side. (Not your make or model). If you can see the tank, look for a line coming out of it other than to the pump. trace this.

RE: Pleated shades, should I tow with them up or down?

We travel with the rear window and the passenger side window up so that we can see. Other one varies and it tends to drop in transit. I need to replace a lot of the strings when I get the courage.

RE: First Time

And walk around the unit whenever you are going to drive it out. You want to make sure that the electric, water, sewer and cable connections are stowed. Check the TV aerial. Check the steps and any slide-outs. Be cautious about where you leave the unit downtown. People have an idea how much stuff there is in an RV. We tend to take up 2 to 4 parking spots (a 30-footer) and it's nice to have a drive-through. We only used the rig for touring on one trip. Ever since then we've rented a car.

RE: Height of Unit

Tip: Make a label with the height and put it where you can see it while you drive. (Mine is on a section of the rear-view mirror that doesn't show anything.) Translate the height into meters and put that on too. Bearing down on an overpass at 60mph is no time for doing arithmetic in your head.

RE: Insert Trim Replacement

Ours pulled out enough to catch on the door. So far, I just snipped it and pushed it back into the channel.

RE: Moisture behind mattress? (Cold caught us)

We found that we were getting water on the walls of cupboards that were along the outer walls. We now put dehunidifier units (chemical things with a bucket -- I forget the brand name) on the floor of the closets. i started by thinking there was a leak. We had the mattress/sheets freeze to the back wall.

RE: Travel trailer necessities

I haven't seen a flashlight in any of the lists. I like the ones that fit over your head and point where you're looking. Sometime in the trip you'll have to go outside and check a propane supply or the circuit breaker or ... A cheap set of a lot of screwdriver bits.If you wear one out, you can replace it with something sturdier. Electrical converters (doglegs) you only need the ones that your RV will plug in to.
