Last week we heard that someplace in Utah had 8 degree temps 2 days in a row. I am thankful that we should be 4 weeks away from those temps. I will be winterizing tomorrow afternoon. I still will be using this TT for another 6 weeks but without onboard water.

This thread is nothing more than an excuse to show off your shop and yes, I am jealous.

specta probably has higher electric bills, heating bills, maintenance expenses and pays more in taxes.

I wish it was mine. I'm just very fortunate that I get to use it.
Just the truck/camper and the blue ATV are mine.

We should get snow for the next few days but most likely only 3-4 inches and its supposed to get below freezing every night too.

Nov 3rd we will be driving the Truck and Lance cross country towing our horse in a trailer from near San Francisco to Lexington KY on I80 until Iowa then dropping down to Lexington. We will be traveling wet, the camper fully insulated and on below freezing days have the furnace on. Stops for the night in Salt Lake City, Ogallala NE, St Peters MO. We will spend a week at the Kentucky horse park competing then do the trip in reverse about 5000 miles total. After that Its snow camping time in the Sierras and Cascades

Nice shop.

I just winterized mine today after using it the last several days in Eastern MT. But, I think I have to take a look at the generator to see if the vent hose is clogged. Still tbd is winterize the trailer. I have electric heat blowing into the compartment with the pump, drained the water, etc. Still tbd to run rv antifreeze through the lines.
