Especially if you live in the northern climes, winterizing your RV is an important step to protecting your investment. Whether you store your RV in paid storage or at your home, it will still be unoccupied for long periods of time. Mother Nature tends to invade, so here are some ways you can keep her out.

Empty your holding tanks. The best time to do this is at completion of your final trip of the summer or fall. Use a dump station, and flush a goodly amount of water through the tanks.

Drain your fresh water tank and your water heater (hopefully they're almost empty from flushing out the holding tanks). Remove the drain from the bottom of the tanks and allow the water, and any accumulated deposits, to flow out. You may wish to leave the plug out over the winter to allow the tank to completely dry out.

Connect a blow plug (available at RV supply stores) to an air compressor line, and then attach it to the water intake opening on the outside of your RV. Make sure the compressor is set to a low psi'around 30-50 is usually fine. Open up a water line, and start the compressor. This will blow air through the lines, drying them out. Go through your RV, opening up faucets and other water lines, one at a time. Flush the toilet, and don't forget your inside and outside showers! After removing the compressor hose, open up a faucet to relieve any air pressure still in your water lines.

Place some anti-freeze in your lines. Water can still accumulate in your lines over the winter, freeze, and ruin a line, resulting in a spring repair before you ever hit the road. Avoid this by running some anti-freeze into your unit, using a line directly into the anti-freeze bottle and into your system. You can install a valve on the intake line to your water pump that will pull anti-freeze directly into the water system. You will, however, need to fill the entire system (usually 6-10 gallons), and this requires purchase of a lot of anti-freeze. If you'd prefer to use less, install a bypass line, which will allow you to run a limited amount of anti-freeze into the system. Bypass lines are available at RV stores. Make sure each fixture, including the toilet and showers, gets some anti-freeze in it so your entire unit is protected.

Consider covering external vents with plastic to discourage wintering or hibernating rodents from calling your RV home.

Consider covering your RV. This prevents weather and sun damage, but can lead to increased humidity inside your trailer. Make the call depending on your knowledge of winter weather conditions in your area.

Place a container of dehumidifying gel in your RV. This is an extremely simple, low-cost step that doesn't require any electricity. For large RVs, consider placing one at either end. Temperature changes will cause condensation within your RV; dehumidifying gels will help keep that humidity contained so mold and mildew don't begin to grow. Check the container at least once during the storage period and be prepared to replace it, especially if you live in a high humidity area, like near a coast.

One afternoon spent preparing your RV for the winter will pay off in the spring. You'll be able to start the travel season without costly repairs and time-consuming delays.

December 10, 2012 -- RV Trader

Waste water is an often overlooked element of going greener while enjoying the RV lifestyle, but one that plays a huge role in the calculation of our environmental footprint. In order to treat waste while living in an RV, it is necessary to use products that both eliminate odors and help to break down and liquefy solid waste. But conventional holding tank deodorizers and treatment chemicals use highly toxic ingredients like formaldehyde and ammonia. Fortunately there are now newer and greener product alternatives that rely instead upon natural enzyme-based and bacterial formulas to break down waste and reduce foul odors.

                           

There are several reasons why many RV owners are switching over to these more eco-conscious products for use in toilet and waste storage tank systems. One of the main benefits is that while chemicals such as formaldehyde and ammonia may be highly effective at destroying the odor-causing bacteria found in waste, they also destroy the 'good' kinds of bacteria that are needed in order to break down solid waste in septic systems. Plus, the more that RV owners use potentially hazardous chemicals to treat waste water, the more those chemicals also enter into campground septic systems ' which increases the risk that those chemicals will enter into municipal sewage systems that may not be equipped to adequately treat them before they are discharged into bodies of water like rivers and streams. Adding concentrated doses of naturally occurring bacteria and enzymes to holding tanks, on the other hand, helps to accelerate the decomposition of waste without formaldehyde ' making the whole process much safer.

                           

One company that offers consumers a wide range of more environmentally friendly RV toilet chemicals and related products is Thetford. They sell a line of holding-tank deodorants that meet strict environmental standards for toxicity, bio-safety levels and biodegradability. Their formaldehyde-free formulas also perform on par with conventional formaldehyde-containing deodorants when it comes to breaking down waste and tissue and preventing clogs. Non-toxic detergent additives in the products also help to keep tanks clean to further reduce odor and ensure that they work efficiently. Because of their commitment to creating greener RV products, Thetford has been granted special Design for the Environment (DfE) status in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Ants:  these little pests can make life miserable.  To prevent them, spread a little borax or Comet with bleach around tires, jacks, water line, anything that enters your camper.  This works great if you are camping for one or two days.  Another great tip is to spread petroleum jelly (Vaseline) or some sort of lubricating grease on about the last two inches of the water line and power cord (easily wiped off with a paper towel).  Ants just can't navigate over this sticky substance.  Camping for several days???  Spread cornmeal around areas that show ant activity.  Another idea - Terro is a commerical product available at Walmart or other similar stores.

Squirrels:  They just love those LP hoses.   What they don't like is cayenne pepper or Tabasco.  Not sure how long Tabasco works, but worth a try.  Also heard the folowing are effective:  Use double sided tape around the hoses and sprinkle cayenne pepper over the tape; buy stainless steel spring hose protectors (available at some auto part dealers or online); ultrasonic pest controllers that deter mice and squirrels.  Warning:  don't put poison out as that can be lethal to household pets as well as the squirrels.

Mice:  What man doesn't love a woman screaming at the sight of a mouse????  Best deterrent is to keep all food covered and make sure there are no tiny holes in the camper that allow mice to squeeze through.  Best way to check is wait for dark, then light up the interior of the trailer, opening cabinet doors then go underneath the trailer and look for slivers of light.  Go back to the source and fill with steel wool and expanding sealant (don't overdo). OR, do the opposite and light up underneath the camper, go inside the dark camper and open cabinet doors and look for those slivers of light.  Again, fill with steel wool and expanding sealant.  Ultrasonic pest controllers do a pretty good job.  In some cases, putting dryer sheets into all the recesses of the camper can deter mice and leave the camper smelling nice.  Moth balls in a plastic bag with holes poked through work great, but I find a single way to get rid of that stinky moth ball smell except time - lots of time. We also have a product called Mouse Free that will prevent the entry of mice,ants and other unwanted critters. It is no drip, no mess, and non-toxic and will work in motorhomes, tent trailers, travel trailers, and fifth wheels. Call Automotion at 1-250-573-2475 and ask for pricing for the do it yourself kit or have us do it for you.
