Winter is here and the cold is setting in so I winterized our mobile home which we use as a second home, guest house or cabin.
In winter we drain the plumbing and shut down the water to prevent freezing the water lines and causing damage.
First I had to go down into the well and find the right valve to shut off the fresh water line. Next I had to open the drain valve to let the water out of the lines.
Inside the trailer I opened up all the faucets in the house. This allows the water to drain out. I could hear the air hissing through the pipes so that was a good sign.
I put a garden hose on the water heater drain fitting and ran the house outside and down the hill. Then I opened the valve to drain the tank. This takes a very long time so I left it for a while.
Later I came back with an air compressor to blow air through the lines. This will make sure there is no water left anywhere in the water pipes of the house which will freeze and damage the lines.
Finally I put RV antifreeze down all the drains in the house. The two bathroom sinks, toilet, bathtub, kitchen sink and the washing machine. This will prevent freezing and bursting of the drain pipes as well.
Now we do not have to worry about the trailer for winter.
