For winterizing we have the tech at our trailer park do our winterizing....will he be able to access the kitchen sink area enough if we put both of or slides in or will we have to wait until the winterizing is done before we can put them in for the winter ?

The tech will need access to all the faucets and drains in the unit. With that said, you can answer your own question. I have to put out my slides to access my bathroom.

This is our 1st season and we are in a park, we have only had it for 2 months and have not put the tips back in yet.....Our 32RL has the bathroom right as you enter the trailer so it is completely accessible but the kitchen sink is in a center island and I'm not sure if it gives them enough working space to reach the sink when the tips are in....I thought if someone else has the 32RL they would know, I guess we won't know until we put the tips in and if it's an issue we will have to keep one tip out until the winterizing is done. The hydro will be shut off in our park by then so we will have to rely on battery to put them in.

just hook wiring up to truck if your battery is weak. there is no reason you cannot open and close the slides when ever you want to.

I wasn't sure when I posted because we had not had the tips in yet because we had only had the trailer for a couple of months and we have it parked in a RV park. We have the tips in now and the trailer has been winterized. The tips come in very close to the middle kitchen island and on the left side there is no room to fit in to reach the sink but on the right side there is just enough room to squeeze through and reach the taps and sink to winterize without having to move the tip out of the way.

I think he's calling the slide outs---tips.
Hydro, I'm taking for electric.

Pretty sure it is electric power. Canada is the worlds second largest producer of Hydroelectricity. (China #1)

We in Canada refer to electric power as hydro because it was made using hydro, as in waterfalls. I always make sure to refer to it as power or electricity when talking to Americans.

Of course these days our power comes not just from water but also nuclear reactors and other sources. Our power company in Ontario is called Hydro One.

I've been in the power industry for 25 years. Hydro is definitely the preferred method of generating electricity. Once the dam is built and the turbine-generators are installed, the fuel is free. We've got several hydro-electric dams in our system, along with coal fired plants, nuclear, both simple and combined cycle natural gas, and even some wind and solar. It's been an interesting way to make a living over the years.

It's a Canadian thing...campers have tip outs and we pay our hydro bill every month. After I type this I'm putting on a bunny hug and goin out to pick up a 4l jug of Homo milk for the kids, a mickey for the wife and a two-four of 50 for myself. Beauty night to watch the game.

Haha...ooops sorry, it's a Canadian thing !! I forgot the USA doesn't use the same terminology as us campers North of the Border. In Canada we call the slide outs "TIPS" or "TIP OUTS" and electricity is also known as "HYDRO" here. My American friend laughs when we call our RV a TRAILER....I've been corrected and told in the USA it's known as a CAMPER.

No worries, I figured out what you were saying just cant say I have ever heard any of that before.

Now for the conversation that Mark and 8iron were having... I am not even going to try and understand that one!

Well ok, I got to know, what is a "bunny hug"?

Also on this, Me being completely new to the "camping with a roof, walls and tires" I have been highly enlightened about the names.

I now know that they are all "RV's", before I started looking to buy one, to me an "RV" was a "motor home" and a 5'er and TT were just "Travel Trailers" and a "camper" was a empty shell you put over the bed of your pickup.
