LTRVD0335 Storing Your RV

Be A Workamper

We open this Storing Your RV show after the mail with some advice on changing out your original fresh water pump with an AquaJet RV from Aquatec. Ours has served us well for over 7 years. Get it at the RV Water Filter Store


In our feature, we start with winterizing your RV’s fresh water system. This is a prelude to Storing Your RV during the off season. We discuss covers, cleaning, pest control, and what to do with your batteries. We also discuss the additional items you must do with a motorized RV.

Then Kathy and John talk about the 2015 RV Oops Awards, an annual feature on Motorhome Magazine.

John talks about the pro’s and con’s of Floor heating registers vs. Wall mounted registers.

  1. Loved hearing this podcast especially about the heat ducts and water lines. We will be traveling in winter weather and we do use and electric heater when we have electric hookup…now have to rethink that and use propane for heat. Oh BTW, the things people have done reminded me of something I failed to do. On the way out of an RV park to go dump the tanks, a sign says “Is your antenna down?” Of course, since we didn’t use the tv or antenna. I now know there should be another sign “Are you Steps UP?.”. I am not a golfer but I know I made a divot to beat all divots with the steps down when they should have been up. Doh! Luckily the steps still work but did break something that needed re-welding.
