I usually winterize in late October or early November here in our part of PA.  That’s when the overnight temperatures can start getting below freezing at night.   I don’t like to take any chances.   There was one Oliver owner who posted a horror story here on the forum of all the damage caused to his trailer by getting caught “un-winterized” during a cold spell.  It pretty much destroyed every part/component of the water system.  A very expensive repair bill.

Oh my goodness, how awful! Those unexpected temperature drops can really catch you off guard. We usually winterize mid-October in Michigan.

When do you winterize?

We are looking forward to the day we can travel all year round and never have to winterize. One more year to go! 
Have a wonderful first trip of the season.😃

I can offer advice on a lot of Oliver topics, but winterizing is something I’ve never done!  Like Steve and Tali, we are leaving next week for a month long trip.  We’ll be back for Thanksgiving and Christmas and then leave for Arizona and other spots before the Christmas holidays are over.  Mike
