I doubt the the "10 year or newer" policies will be in place much longer. What with the collapse in class a sales since the world went pear-shaped in 2008, soon there will be only a handful of qualifying (by age) coaches.
Thanks, everyone, for the helpful replies. Yes, re-winterizing is not impossible, but finding the time to get the pink stuff, get the rv, do the work, etc is non-trivial right now. If I can't do that, I'll leave it plugged in with the furnace set low.
This winter is truly the gift that keeps on giving!
So... we had a very enjoyable trip to central Florida the 1st week of April and are now enjoying some warm weather here in the Chicago west burbs. But...
Forecast is for several hours below freezing (high 20's) Monday and Tuesday night. I'd hate to spend the money on pink stuff and the time to re-winterize, so - in my shoes, would you just turn on the furnace overnight? Space heaters in the water bay?
I do have an unheated, uninsulated barn it could go in, but the temp would drop pretty quickly there, too.
Rig is an 08 Damon Astoria DP.
thanks in advance.
Couldn't you use the tow hooks rather than buy a base plate?
They are not designed for flat towing. Would it work? maybe, but not worth the risk for me, and you'd still need to rig something to attach to the tow bar.
Just did the Roadmaster baseplates this weekend, and I am very pleased with the result - minimal butchery of the grill, the breakaway leads feed through a pre-existing plug/grommet, and the whole install is very inconspicuous.
The loss of the tow hooks is not all that meaningful to me.
I can't get dropbox photos to embed, so here are the links:
It is a slide topper. As for the make I don't know and my motor home is currently in storage so can't even run out and look. I suppose it makes a huge difference? Just my luck.
Same problem on the slide topper. I had the shop tighten the tension a bit, and since then, no problems.
