Dewinterizing our Axis 25.1

Hi there,
RV rookie here! I was thinking of dewinterizing our MH on March 28th. No particular reason for that date other than the fact that it was the only open Saturday we have for the next few weeks. I live in Hinckley (Northeast Ohio). In your opinion, is it too early to dewinterize the MH?

Appreciate your feedback.

Matt

Looking at your monthly averages:
March Weather for Cleveland, OH | Weather Underground
Your average lows are just above freezing. I think it'd be a little iffy to dewinterize then, unless you leave it with nothing in the lines (e.g. blow out the water lines with a compressor after you've used it).
I will typically keep an eye out on the long range forecast. My general rule has been: If the lows for the next 10 days are well above freezing then I'll dewinterize. Even though we have our streak of warm weather this week I still think I won't be dewinterizing it until April some time. Frankly it takes me about 15-20 minutes to do that so I may just hold off until our first camping trip.

Dewinterized mine last week for a 3 day weekend into the N. GA mountains. It was sooo worth it even if I have to winterize it again anytime soon. Not anticipating having to do much more than blowing out the lines maybe for that pre Easter cold snap we usually get. Keeping an eye out on the extended forecast.

Yeah, I think it would be wise to wait until mid April to dewinterize! Thanks for the input.


I was in Decatur, GA Wednesday on a business trip. It was 77 degrees! Kept thinking what on God's green earth am I doing in Cleveland, OH!!!! haha!

I grew up in Cleveland and left there many years ago. Although Virginia isn't Georgia or Florida in the winter it is a heck of a lot better than CLEVELAND. Been there, done that and I feel your pain.
