Has anyone been to MB in the winter ,, like around Dec 21 or so,, i would like some input on this cause i'm heading down there at that time,, i need to know wheather to winterrize here or do it on the return trip home????
I have a tank heater on the drinking water tank ,, but none on the gray or black,,, i know it needs to be very cold for a long period of time before the tanks and coach freeze ,, but i was just wondering about the temps down there at that time of year... :)

Re: Myrtle beach

Hi 730, you will not need to do it before just after, I lived just outside of Myrtle Beach and it can get cold here. Last Christmas it was real chilly, it dropped down to 51 degrees, it is 82 now. We have seen it freeze a few times and once in awhile get into the 20's or even teens, but most of the ti,e around 40 or above. Hope this answers your questions.

Re: Myrtle beach

was this on the beach ,, i am not doubting u'r post ,, but i know the wind blows on the beach,, we have a sight with concrete surf side ,, i am not worried about winterizing there but the drive home has me concerned ,,, i use to camp in colorado in sept ,, to do some flyfishing ,, the place i stayed at was 40 miles of the paved road,, but anway ,, it used to get down to upper teens during the night,, at one time the hose froze to the rv ,, but the rv was fine,,, so i thinking if it can handle that i should be ok for 40 degree weather at the beach ,,, i know i feel paranoid,, but i fix these things for a living ,, and have seen so much ,, makes me more precauses ,, i guess u say,,,
I can handle 40 degree cold ,, but i would prefer 90 degree cold ,, i am a person who likes to sweat in the summer ,, but hate the cold,,, JMO :)
Bty ,, i was down there in MB 4 years ago (everyone said go down in sept)
anyway it got down to 22 for 3 nights ,, the rv park personal ,, came and unhooked the fresh water line just in case ,, but i never had a prob,, i guess u'r right ,, i'l go as planned ,, and if something freezes and breaks i can fix it ,,, (i don't like working on my own stuff) anyway thanks for the input ,, and i hope to see u this spring for bike week ,, we go down for the month ,, sorry outta the post ,, but agian ,, thanks :approve:

Re: Myrtle beach

My site is only 5 ft from the beach ,, and we stay at Oceanlakes ,, which is in actually surfside beach ,, but thank u for the post ,, i'll besure to winterize for the trip home,, although the weather here has been great ,, all the old timers here in my little farming town ,, say don't break out the heavy coats yet ,, it will be long into Feb ,, befroe we see a cold spell ,, i can live with that ,,, heck last year ,, here in Dec it was 78 ,, i liked it ,, but the wife said this is not winter,,, we have not seen snow here in the past 2 years ,, but i'm happy ,, if it's above 60 i'm very happy,, (don't like the cold)
I have been teaseing the family about moving to the equator ,, the temps are upper 80's to 100's all year round (my kinda weather)
Sorry ,, got carried away :( ;) :)
Also if u see my Signature it will tell u how i feel about weather :approve: :approve: :) :bleh:

Re: Myrtle beach

We were in MB on New Years during Y2K. Had no problem with cold...When we camp in the winter, even though my tanks are heated, the lines that are inside the basement can still freeze. I fixed this problem 1 year by buying a $4 hair dryer and running it in the basement where the tanks and water lines are. I have since replaced that with a 110 outlet and a lightbulb. That one lightbulb put out enough heat to make it through 10 degree nights.
We live in Florida and need to absorb all the cold we can so we can make it through the summer ;)

Re: Myrtle beach

Rod, something happened to your ancestors! They must have gotten lost on their way to Texas! ;)

I've been to Tennessee (and plan to go back), so I know why I would have settled there. Only I'm having a hard time leaving Texas.

My favorite thing to say during winter is, "Give me dust, dirt, and gnats any day!"

Shorty is what everyone calls me, that is unless they're a salesperson...then it's that 'other' name that I put on my bills :)
Got named that when I walked on stilts as Uncle Sam in Orlando...add my 6'6" frame to 3' stilts and a 12" stars & stripes top hat, well, you get the picture. My name tag said shorty and it stuck
:approve:
