Winterizing Your Camper

Its always a little bit sad to say goodbye to your camping home for the season, but winterizing your camper correctly will save you a lot of money in the long run. A properly winterized camper prevents costly repairs, eliminates the need for extensive cleaning when spring arrives, and helps in maintaining your camper’s longevity. Here are three key reasons to Winterize Your Camper when the cold season hits.

1. Protection From Freezing Temperatures

Winterizing your camper is crucial as temperatures below freezing levels can damage your camper's plumbing system, pumps, and hoses. Protecting these components from freezing temperatures means your system won't be damaged by water freezing and expanding within them. Use antifreeze to drain your water system and keep it flowing constantly to prevent any damage.

2. Preventing Pest Infestations

Pests such as rats, mice, and even insects find warmth and shelter in RV's and campers during winter. Winterizing the camper includes sealing all possible entry points to keep the camping area secure. Seal all openings with tape to prevent unwanted visits by these pesky critters. If you're really concerned, you could even set traps.

3. Maintenance And Longevity

Winterizing your camper helps it to last longer and perform better. All travel trailer and RV service providers recommend that camper owners take winterizing seriously. The process can be lengthy, but it ensures that your RV is in good condition to last through winter, and it reduces the risk of breakdowns and costly repair work that may arise from neglect and poor maintenance. The last thing you want is to have to cancel your vacation since the money was spent on repair costs. Take care of your camper, and it will take care of you.

The benefits of winterizing your camper are clear as day. When you're ready to take action, here are 8 more tips on Winter-proofing your Camper, courtesy of Fastway Trailer Products & Stewart’s RV here in Utah.
