WINTER TECH TIPS

 

MAKE SURE YOUR UNITIS WINTERIZED BEFORE PUTTING IT AWAY FOR THE WINTER

 

 

 

It is a good idea to leave the dump valves open and replace cap with a vented waste cap.   This will keep your tank dry and odor free.  It will also prevent critters from getting into your waste tanks.

 

Any units returning from the South before April 15th should be fully winterized. 

 

If using the toilet in the winter time, a little bit of windshield washer solvent and rock salt in the holding tank will not harm anything and will keep it liquified.  Be sure to winterize the unit when leaving. 

 

To avoid furnace issues if using your RV in the winter, a well charged 12v battery is a must.  Just plugging the unit into shore power may not accomlish this.

 

We do not recommend leaving the unit plugged in all the time, this will cause the battery to over charge (or boil out).

 

This is the time of year you want to be charging, monitoring and testing your batteries to prevent freezing.  If taking the batteries out for the winter be sure to mark positive and negative on your battery wires as you take them off to insure proper installation in the Spring.

 

It is recommended to spray a little lock key lube or WD40 in all keylocks to help stop corrosion.

 

When storing your unit for the winter do not put your RV tires on any kind of wood surface.  The wood has a tendency to draw out the oils in the tires and causing dry rot.  Also make sure that the tires are aired up at all times.

 

Also when storing your RV for winter,  be sure that you give your unit a little tilt.  This insures water will run off quickly.  We do not recommend tarping your unit as this may cause wear and chafing on the rubber roof.  And crush the air conditioner seal from weight of snow.

 

BE SURE TO REMOVE ALL FOOD ITEMS FROM YOUR UNIT WHEN STORING FOR THE WINTER.

 

 

BE SURE TO CHECK ON YOUR UNIT THROUGHOUT THE WINTER TO AVOID PROBLEMS IN THE SPRING.  THIS INCLUDES CHECKING ALL PLASTICS ON THE ROOF AND IF YOU HAVE DEHUMIDIFIERS CHECK TO MAKE SURE THEY DO NOT NEED TO BE EMPTIED.

 

 

BOAT TRAILERS

 

It is recommended that all boat trailers do a grease and pack (a total axle service) before storing for the season. This will get all the water out of the bearings so that they will not rust over the winter. This is also a good time to flush the hydraulic system and put new brake fluid in.
