Yesterday I winterized the bus and topped off the fuel tank. It is always a sad time for me. Sad  Now I will have to wait until the kids have Spring Break to take it out for a good drive.

Looking forward to Spring Break in Florida!

We don't have to winterize, we just live in it year round! Grin

Best decision we ever made!

Thanks for reminding me about winterization.  I've not done my winterization yet and it supposed to get down to 27 degrees.  I was going to put some electric heaters in the bus to be safe, but I forgot.  It probably isn't going cold enough long enough to freeze the pipes, but you never know.

Thats my project for this weekend, blowing out the water lines and taking the traps apart, I drained the tanks a couple of days ago, I brought the bus in from the skanee house (anti-KOA) and now the changes start again, the day/night shades are getting bad and I really don't want to try restringing them so for 5 bucks apiece I'll dig thru the ones at trina's and find replacements for them, I'd also like to get a thicker mattress and a taller toilet, I'm getting so crippled up that I need a head start at getting up.  I'm also adding grab bars to help me move around inside, like around the toilet and the shower, the MS is starting to kick in a bit and making it somewhat more inconvienent, with libby not wanting to travel with me much anymore I'll probably have to get a thicker mattress in case the Swedish Bikini Team hears I'm available.
