Winterizing a Breckenrige Park Trailer

3 posts in this topic

I just bought a new Breckenridge trailer, 44 footer, and I forgot to ask the dealer how you winterize one of these (looking ahead to next year.) Do you blow out the lines somehow or pump in the pink juice like I do on the smaller unit I have now?

Shut off the water and remove and drain the water hose. Drain the water heater. If it's electric there will be a drain under the trailer, probably has a grey cap on it. Close the bypass valves for the water heater, should be three of them close the inlet and outlet valves and open the bypass valve which will be in between them. Open the two drains that are under the trailer near the water inlet fitting and drain the water. Replace the plugs when it quits dripping. I use a hand pump at this point and connect it to the water inlet. Open one faucet at a time and pump the anti-freeze until you see it come out the faucet then close it and open the next one. Do all the faucets including the bathtub. Flush the toilet to remove the water in the tank and tie the float up to shut off the valve. With a plunger push the water out of the toilet bowl and over the trap. You should ahve used about 1 1/2 gal. at this point. Pour about a qt into the toilet tank and let it flow into the bowl. Be sure you have antifreeze in all the traps then pour what's left into the toilet bowl. Been doing mine for 10 years this way.

    • Well, he was close on that one, because it certainly wasn't a debate.
    • Uncanny resemblance...
    • I have been going to golden meadows lately to work my dog so far we have shot 24 birds over him. One more time at the preserve before the season starts and we are itching to get out in the real fields!  
    • Wow do the unicorns fly in your fantasy too?
    • Would you like me to put sugar in your medicine to make it taste better?
    • Unless: If no candidate wins an absolute majority in the Electoral College, the election is decided by the House of Representatives. Thus, if Johnson were to win, say, Colorado while Trump and Clinton split all other electoral votes 50-50, the House would pick the winner. Given that Trump and Clinton are the most unpopular candidates in recent history, a divided House might compromise by selecting Johnson, a former two-term (Republican) governor of New Mexico.
    • It's probably going to be late this year. I got my itch scratched at Traxlers reserve in LeCenter today at least so that helps but really for me the pheasant season doesn't get into high gear until after deer season. Normally the first few weeks are too warm to be out a whole day with the dogs and there are too many corn fields in. By the 3rd week in November the temps have dropped and the corn is mostly out and that's when it gets better and of course first snow...... I am fairly optimistic about the bird populations this year. Obviously the rain we had was a wildcard and it's hard to say right now how that has impacted populations but there was a good group of birds that carried over from last season and the winter didn't take too many.
