I know many people have winterized already, I am a later winterizer wanting to use my shower, sinks, and potty on the Thanksgiving Rally trip this weekend.  I constantly look at the price when fall rolls around.  $4 at the RV store.  $3.xx here or there. I know it goes down to about $2.50 a gallon.  FINALLY!!!!  I found it at the Wal-Mart in King of Prussia PA.  I’m guessing the price is similar at other Wal-Marts.  I picked up 2 gallons to winterize this Sunday.  I may pick up another 2 gallons so I don’t have to wait for the price to drop next fall.  I’ll just keep 2 gallons in the garage and rotate them each year.

Dawn and I started winterizing yesterday after getting home from the Thanksgiving Rally. We unloaded all the food, the sheets, blankets, towels, etc (limit materials for mice nests). I used about 1 1/3 gallons of the pink stuff for the Jayco X23B.
Still have to pull the battery, put out the peppermint soaked cotton balls (keeps mice away) and cover her for the long winter nap. So sad to see the trailer in that condition.

We also winterized yesterday, but hope to continue camping all winter. We just keep the pink stuff in the lines & don’t use onboard water. Ressies are made for New Years and we will wait and see what January & February weather have in store for us. If the trailer isn’t buried behind snow plow mounds, a quick MLK or Presidents wknd getaway is a good cure for the winter blues.

I guess we’re frugal with pink, when we winterized last year (first time we had a water system) we used less than a gallon of pink, including what we poured into the sink & shower + toilet. We did the combination of drain and blow out (we have a compressor and the fitting they make to use it to blow out the lines), and used the by-pass on the pump to fill that with pink. We also have a by-pass for the hot water tank, and drained that well. 
We’ll winterize after our trip in a couple of weeks. If we get a chance to get out  in the winter, we’ll just revert to ground and pop-up style with water jugs, and gel toilet bags.
The TT is at the dealer for warranty work, so we hope it doesn’t get too cold before we get it back. If we’d known they’d have it this long, we’d at least have blown it out.
