Sorry for your loss, Harry, may she rest in peace. [emoticon]

I use an Aeropress, but heard recently about the Chulux K-cup machine. Amazon reviews say it doesn't have those water lines that never empty out in use. Only 800 watt draw. Hmm, I guess my Aeropress still works.... [emoticon]

Sorry I forgot to warn you. [emoticon] But, in my camper I use a peculator on the stove top. I don't worry about it freezing. [emoticon]

At the end of the day nothing beats peculator coffee, especially a non modern one. New ones perc too fast.

Thank you all. No flowers please.
The funeral service was private due to Covid restrictions.
We are grieving, but looking forward to new & different adventures with our new friend. Our former friend will never be forgotten.

All kinds of advice: Blow out the lines with air. Pump in the antifreeze. Both. Bring the battery inside. Put it on a trickle charger. Use a cover. Don't use a cover.

But did anybody warn me to bring the Keurig inside? Noooooo! [emoticon]

There's a water reservoir in a Keurig, and freezing will ruin it.[emoticon]

And I thought we were all friends here.[emoticon]

Oh well, the new one is red. Looks nicer on the counter than that old black one.[emoticon]


Ahhh, thanks for the humor.
You can scratch all those tasks off your list by leaving your trailer plugged in and furnace set above 32*

Of course we do winterize but never have to unload/unpack any liquids including dumping the Keurig and battery stays put.
We've had a very harsh winter as many are well aware and to date, have only used (3) 30# tanks of propane.

If this is not an option.....disregard.

Sorry you had to buy a new Keurig machine but you should have kept the old one for people that like ice coffee.

We had Keurig in the S&B, got rid of it, when we got the RV, we started with a cheap Mr. Coffee, when camping in National Parks or other Fed CG's with generator hours, we quickly learned that wasn't going to work as by the time the gen hours started, we were already up & gone, so like Caveman Charlie, this is the extent of our coffee technology.

What do you do about all the other liquid stuff sodas, cleaning products, bottled water, etc.


Here is southern MN where it got to 20 below zero farenheit last week you have to bring in everything that will freeze.

I keep all the cans of food and stuff like that in a tote that I just carry into the house in the winter. Sodas must be brought in or they explode like little bombs. Cleaning products I just let freeze it, doesn't seem to hurt them. Bottle water I usually bring in but, it can freeze too and it doesn't hurt it.

You even have to bring beer in !! It too will explode if it gets cold enough.

You actually have beer left over after a camping trip ?

We were talking about our crummy coffee maker on a trip this weekend.

When my wife and I bought our current house 25+ years ago, the market was in the dumper and we decided to hang onto our old house until things picked up again. Making two mortgage payments was a killer and I had joked to my sister in-law that I couldn't ever go to Starbucks again. She felt bad for me and gave me a $20 Starbucks gift card for Christmas. I really don't even like Starbucks, so instead of using the card for four overpriced cups of coffee, I used it to buy one of their store branded coffee makers for $19 plus tax.

The coffee maker was pretty bad then, and it's even worse now. I've bought a nice one for home, but I've kept the old one in the RV for years as a trophy to celebrate never going back to Starbucks.

Oh and the coffee maker came with a coupon, so I got a free cup of coffee from them on my way out the door.
