Winterize

Postby Squire » Thu Dec 13, 2007 3:37 pm

We live fulltime in our 32FKR but I still needed to winterize. The tanks and plumbing is hidden in the insulation but the "drain hoses" hang underneath.
I zipped tied baggies tightly around the hoses and then sprayed foam insulation on the baggies. The baggies keep the insulation off the hoses in case I need to service them. I left the long ends sticking out on the z-ties so I could find them if I need to break the foam off and cut the z-ties to remove the baggies.

Now I can just turn on the heater blanket and we should be all right.

From what I understand, a very HOT AIR system has moved into Arkansas from Atlanta so winterizing should not be necessary. Be aware though that it could move out in the middle of the night with no warning. :lol: :oops:

Took me a second to figure that out. Very good reply, hehe.

Squire, This can't be happening, aren't we in a period of man made global warming? Can't get below freezing, or someone will have to return their Nobel prize. Have you tried the one inch round foam pipe insulators that Lowes and Home Depot sell? Cut them to length and secure with a cable tie.

Tim, I thought about that but one of the three drains had a large shutoff valve so I just decided to do them all the same.

Understand, my four drains have no shut off valves, so pipe insulation works well.

Have a great day.
