We are going to be in Corvallis next Friday evening for our grand-daughter's concert and will be "camping" in our son's driveway (off Arboretum Rd). How cold has it been getting there? We have already winterized, although it sounds like it is not supposed to get to freezing at our place tomorrow night as forecast. Wondering, do we flush the anti-freeze from our system and hope it doesn't freeze in Corvallis Friday night? I know . . . . how do you accurately predict the weather in Oregon?I will just "ditto" what kernhend says. We used to only "blow" our pipes out in our old camper and one year got particularly cold. Broke our faucets! Now we blow and use antifreeze. Inexpensive insurance! We also plan to use our Unity this winter to go skiing/snowshoeing so we will be doing this more than a few times this winter. We just went through a trial run of adding snow cables to the rear outer tires in our driveway this week and hoodoo ski area opened today! Yay! Let it snow!!
You do a fair amount of cold weather camping. How does this work? Do you keep the water lines winterized with anti-freeze and use an alternate source of water? Can you flush a macerator toilet by pouring water into the bowl? I'm not opposed to heating water for washing dishes, we carry drinking water anyway, and I'm ok with foregoing a shower for a few days.
I'm hoping this will get easier once we have a year in our Unity under our belts
