Whether you use your trailer all year round, or set it aside for summer vacationing, all Teardrop trailer owners should know how to prepare their trailer for a long winter.
Taking the time to properly winterize your trailer will make sure that it remains in good condition year round. That way, once the snow melts and vacation season is once again upon us you can simply load up and take off.
In our last post, we discussed the importance of draining the water properly on your tear drop trailer in Rochester WA to ensure your pipes don’t freeze up once the temperature drops. Today we will discuss adding antifreeze to your pipes and also how to flush them out once spring hits.
Here are the steps for adding antifreeze to your pipes:
Find a non-toxic antifreeze that is made specifically for RVs.
Add around two gallons of antifreeze to the system through all the drains on the tr
If using antifreeze is not an option, it’s possible to use compressed air instead to blow the pipes dry for the season.
Once you add the antifreeze, your pipes are winterized and ready to make it through the winter.
The antifreeze or the compressed air treatment has kept your RV’s plumbing safe during the harsh weather of winter, but ow that spring is here it’s time to do a spring time flush.
Here are the steps for flushing out the antifreeze once spring comes back around:
You can simply drain the antifreeze and begin cleaning the system for a new season.
To clear the antifreeze fill the tank with fresh water and turn on the water pump to flush out the entire system.
It’s important to sanitize the system both before and after winterizing, particularly if you drink the water in the tank for your Teardrop trailer.
A dose of bleach poured into the plumbing will help sanitize your system after the antifreeze has been drained.
Now that you know how to winterize your trailer, you can turn in for the winter and hibernate until Spring! Contact Trailer Boss today if you are in the market for a brand new teardrop trailer in Rochester WA!
