Hey Escapees! We’re doing our first winter trip to Arizona from eastern Pennsylvania, leaving on the 13th of Jan. Anyone ever make this trek in January? Any recommendations for travel? It’s cold…we want to get warm…. Thanks!!
First the Covid-19, then medical problems which us has staying in the cold country. My problem is we get a little liquid moisture and it freezes. Sometimes it freezes the Pathway solid resulting in one satellite being visible. Other times maybe nothing or some limited rotation. I can take Windshield De-icer to melt the ice but that was required 5 of the last 8 days. Anyone have a solution. I have thought of using a Glycol product but the Turkeys frequently the area. I forced to use the Eastern Arc due to trees or I would use my Trailgater. Jan 1, is suppose to warm to 32 degrees with sleet. I guess I need a plastic bubble??? Best guess I have 7 weeks before going south. Thanks Clay from NW Illinois
We are back in the snow! New Years weekend takes us out into a snowy winter wonderland once again. Come along as we put the tow rig to the test as we hit some slushy 4x4 trails. Out in the California desert once again, to do some offroading in the snow and mud. California RV travel in snowy weather can make for difficult traffic conditions! We meet up with a friend to go exploring but the trail conditions throw us for a loop.
We have a 2016 Evo by Forest River T2050 travel trailer with the "Arctic Package." That package includes an insulated and enclosed underbelly, increased insulation all the way around, and tank heater pads. The water lines to each appliance and fixture run around the inside of the trailer rather than between the walls, with the exception of the hot and cold lines leading from the water heater to the kitchen sink, which is on a pedestal. However, that one runs just below the thin floor and above the tanks and underbelly insulation, so I'm not terribly concerned about that one freezing, either, as long as we maintain a reasonable temperature inside the rig.We intend to do some winter camping this season at several different ski resorts. Unfortunately, Forest River didn't see protecting the dump valves as anything important when putting together their "Arctic Package." The pipes to the dump valves drop out of the insulated underbelly before terminating at the valves, leaving them rather exposed to the elements and prone to freezing up.As that's got the potential for a messy disaster in cold weather, we decided to do something about it. We've frost-proofed our dump valves and exterior plumbing, and made a video as we completed the job to share our idea:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KABF205es_UI welcome your feedback, including any weaknesses you still see, or any better ideas around this subject.
