STATE: (....of) Confusion!

Location: Sun Belt of Rain Soaked B.C. Canada

When do we put away? Hardly EVER!

Too many events (trailer and auto themed) going on all year up here to put the Trillium that far into hibernation.
Its always near at hand and avaivable in about a weeks notice!

Haven't even had an overnight frost here in Southern Ontario yet. Maybe in another month or so when the leaves fall off the trees.

I'm in Minesota; generally I winterize in mid-November. One year it was mid-December (we actually went Camping in early December). We usually de-winterize about April 15th. My wife and I have been out camping in mid-March, and had a ball!

Do we haf ta?

No seriously, we're newbies and aren't sure if we have to winterize, etc. We just acquired our new-to-us egg in June and have a trip to Florida planned for over Christmas. We live in North-East Maryland and our "Bothy" lives in our garage. The temp doesn't get below zero (at least hasn't in the five years we've been here). Do we need to do anything after we return from our (first) big trip? Thanks.

If the temperature gets below 32 Fahrenheit (or even close), you should probably drain and/or winterize the water system (exact procedure depends on how involved your water system is). You mentioned 0 degrees, but unless you are measuring in celsius (unlikely) that is not freezing. 32 degrees Fahrenheit is the freezing point of water.

You could, alternatively, heat your garage, but that would probably be an added expense and worry all out of proportion to simply winterizing the trailer.

Think about sink drain hoses, water pumps, water tanks, and any other water hoses. Toilet and associated pumps and tanks (if you have one). Water heater (if you have one), and greywater tank (again, if you have one).

An A/C system could need winterizing - I'm not sure what you have.

Basically anything that has fluid or water in it.

Propane is fine for over-wintering, although you might want to drain the lines and store the tank elsewhere, since you keep the trailer in your garage (Turn on stove and then shut off valve at tank and wait for burner to go out; then make sure to turn burner handle to off position.)

Raya (further south than you, and definitely still in winterizing territory)

Hi: All...We're located in the "banana belt" of Canada. About the same latitude as Eugene Oregon. Anywhoo...ifn I was retired I would winterize "Our Escape Hatch" by hooking up and tugging south to say Frostproof Florida. But alas it will be under cover at my brother in laws very soon!!!
