    Don, I checked the Weather Network and the 14 day trend for Vancouver is all above freezing. Soooooo, if you believe the weatherman, you should be safe de-winterizing your trailer. After all, if he's wrong he isn't the one who is going to be replacing burst plumbing. just saying..... :eek: :eek:

    Good luck and let us know how you make out. :) :)

    We camp in Virginia all winter long but we don't run water through the lines. We use bottled water to flush the toilet, etc. I leave antifreeze in the toilet bowl and pour some down any drains we use. We have been fine doing this. It's unusual for us to have a couple of straight days below freezing, though.

    Cute. We don't. The weekends that it is that cold are the ones when I stay home and actually do some work around the house! I have heard of some folks flushing with antifreeze, though!
