We have been RVing since 2002 in the summers only and have no winter experiance what so ever.


This year we have to be in Boston between 10-25 November and then get back to Toronto to store the rig.


My questions are;


Can we do the trip with the trailer? are C.G open? would my water pipes take it with out blowing?


Thanks .

As long as you keep heat in the trailer the pipes should be ok. You need to either look up th CG on the internet or call them to see if they are open.

There's a nice campground called Normandy Farms, very close to Foxboro where the Patriots play. I think they are open year round - we stayed for Thanksgiving the end of November. They do have some sites with water available although you may need some type of insulation for the hose from the hookup to the camper. They have an indoor pool, too.

Thank you Chrisnan23 & croberts,I still have to clarify;
A.If the trailer is heated the water in the pipes will not freeze-right?
B.What kind of installation I would need on my hose from the water supply to the trailer?
Anything else I have to worry about?

The water pipes question is true, remember that the heat will dissapate during your drive so stop every so often to turn the heat on and have a sandwich.



There is insulation you can put on your hose but you should also have heat tape on the hose as well, or just use your water tank and pump.Edited by: Chrisnan23

Normandy Farms is a great place. You could play the temp by 'ear.' We do Penn. most Thanksgivings. Use the CG's bathrooms/showers, the trailer's in a pinch with a gallon of water to flush ! Coffee etc. out of a gallon, wash your hands etc should it be too cold. Otherwise use the hose or your water tank. You could then winterize with the pink stuff before leaving. Make sure to dump some to fill each drain trap. Chances are though, the weather won't be too cold to use CG water---but I'd be concerned heading North.

If you are on the road during freezing weather, make sure the water pump is shut off and then open the low point drains and leave them open until the next CG. Any water left in the lines may freeze, but it won't expand enough to damage anything. Then when you arrive at the CG, turn the furnace on right away.



If you don't want to insulate the outside water line or are unsure about the next CG having water available, keep the fresh tank nearly full, it and the internal lines are less likely to freeze. Same thing if daytime temps are above freezing but overnight temps will be below freezing. then top off the fresh tank as soon as you stop, then store the outside hose and use the fresh water tank for your overnight needs.
