Time to Put the Motor Home away for the Winter!

Honestly I hate to see it go out of the driveway but have lots of projects to do over the Winter to spruce it up on the inside which require a sewing machine so I should be able to keep myself busy! We could keep it here in the drive but when we purchased it storage for the winter was part of the deal so we might as well take advantage of it this year!

We have no plans to go away any place warm this winter so not having it is ok!

We plan to take it over at some point today to the dealer but first I need to get some bounce fabric sheets and make sure that there are no places underneath that rodents can get in and plug them up if we find any with steel wool!

I told the Hub the other day that now we have this unit we need to make sure we take good care of it mechanically etc so we do not run into problems down the road due to lack of care!

Any how counting the days till it comes back to the house we finish the work on it we would like to do and head down the open road again and enjoy our time in it. That cannot come fast enough!

Always sad to come to the end of another camping year. Glad to read that you're takin the right steps, i.e. Bounce fabric sheets and steel wool and adding nontoxic rv antifreeze to all water lines, before putting up your trailer for winter. Looking forward to seeing your photos of any winter projects.
