Fall's chill is in the air. Nighttime temps are dipping very close to freezing. I need to think about winterizing LilScamper.
In the plumbing department, it has only a water tank, small 12v water pump (see pic below), 12v single spout faucet (see pic below), and outside drain plug. I've been reading some past posts on winterizing and am wondering if I need to put antifreeze in the water tank. How much? And what kind? I'm assuming it's gotta be safe for human consumption. I'll need to run the pump until it comes out the faucet and fills the sink trap, right?
What other things should I do to prepare it for winter? I have a cover, but I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to attach a couple swim noodles to the underside of the cover to allow some air circulation over the trailer roof.
I'll also take out all the food, linens and bedding, and spread around some dryer sheets so I don't encourage mice to make a home in there.
Anything else I should do?
If I decide to do some winter camping, can I still use the sink but not the faucet or pump? It'll be like tent camping, but much warmer!
Then, in spring, how do I get all that antifreeze out of the water tank?
Thanks so much for your wisdom and help.
