Avoid These Common Mistakes When Winterizing Your Coach

A Little Winterization Goes a Long Way (Provided You Do It Correctly!)

If you’re not planning to store your RV in a climate-controlled indoor facility, then you must winterize it at the end of the season. Every single RVer has heard horror stories of what can happen to improperly winterized RVs: burst pipes, gelled diesel, burst tires and plenty more!

We’ll save you the tales of terror. Instead, we’d like to take a look at some of the most common mistakes RVers make when getting ready for the winter.


Waiting Too Long

We get it: everyone wants RV season to last as long as possible, especially if the weather is nice! Provided things stay sunny enough in August and September, it can be easy to get a little too trusting of the weather. 

Unfortunately, this means you’ll potentially have your guard down when the cold weather finally does show up, which is a recipe for disaster. Even if you plan on extending your RV season slightly, it’s still a good idea to purchase antifreeze and get your plans lined up, so you’re ready to winterize when it starts snowing.


Not Flushing ALL Your Water Lines

Even the greenest of newcomers know it’s important to blow out an RV’s water lines using compressed air, along with filling those lines with antifreeze. What many newcomers can slip up on, however, is keeping track of every water line in their motorhome. 

At the beginning of the season, it’s helpful to do a walkthrough and make a checklist of every water line in the RV so you can be properly thorough when it comes time to winterize. Water sources like washing machines and ice-makers can be easy to forget when you’re in a hurry to pack up at the end of the season. 


Leaving the Batteries

Dead batteries contain plenty of water that can freeze when temperatures get too low. Even worse, batteries can effectively destroy appliances if they freeze inside them. When winterizing your vehicle, make sure to take out ALL of the batteries from your vehicle and store them somewhere indoors.

When we say ALL of the batteries in your vehicles, we mean it. Don’t forget you car batteries or the batteries in your remote controls and smoke detectors. 


Forgetting to Empty Your Cabinets

There’s a running theme to these mistakes: things with liquids in them can explode if they’re left to freeze. This isn’t limited to beer bottles and water pipes either; just about anything with a liquid component can turn into major headaches if left unchecked. 

Freezing is one of those “better safe than sorry” things if you’re not sure about an object or appliance in your car. As a general rule of thumb, it’s significantly easier to move a wine bottle indoors than clean up the after-effects of a wine explosion in your RV. 


Of Course, You Can Always Skip the Hard Parts…

Remember when we mentioned indoor storage as an alternative for fully winterizing your RV? Let’s take another look at that.

While there are still some steps you need to take when checking your RV into off-season storage, there’s nowhere near the same level of concerns and considerations. Even better, a good indoor RV storage facility will be able to help you with the winterizing (and de-winterizing) process, letting you skip the hard parts of wrapping up the RV season. 

Between sophisticated climate-controlled storage systems and secure 24/7 security monitoring, at NIRVC, we keep our client’s RVs in perfect condition through the off-season. Learn more about indoor RV storage at NIRVC.

Class B RV Pros and Cons

While Class B RVs might not get as much attention as their bigger, roomier cousins, they’re a favorite amongst experienced RVers for a reason. These compact motorhomes are the vehicle of choice for weekend warriors, nature photographers and diehard campers alike. There’s a reason for that. In fact, there are several!

Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of owning a Class B RV!


PRO: Maneuverability

Driving a big RV, such as a Class A or Class C RV, means doing a lot of three-point turns. Compared to larger vehicles, Class B RVs are nimble and able to navigate smaller spaces that would be otherwise impossible for other types of motorhomes. If your trip involves a lot of winding mountain roads or busy city streets, Class B Rvs are a game-changer. 


CON: Size

Hopefully, you enjoy everybody you’re going to be traveling with because you should count on seeing a lot of them! Class B motorhomes tend to be much smaller than counterparts in other classes, meaning drivers have to do with significantly less floor space. Not only does this mean getting cozy with the other passengers, but it also means several different systems are likely carefully stacked on top of each other. In practical terms, you shouldn’t expect to sleep in the central area if someone else is using it to cook.


PRO: Customization

Since Class B RVs are more compact, they’ve got significantly fewer moving parts than larger models. Because of this, they’re also easier to customize than other models, as new features require less rearranging. These RVs also tend to be the testing ground for cutting-edge tech, so features like surround-sound systems or solar batteries are often going to be fancier on a Class B.


CON: Setup (and Teardown)

If you aren’t towing a trailer or other vehicle, expect to spend some time setting up and tearing down your Class B RV at every campsite. While the process isn’t too time-consuming—and you’ll find yourself getting a lot quicker at it as time goes on—it’s still an extra chore. This set-up and teardown process is something to note especially if you’re using any tents or sunshades that externally connect your RV.


PRO: Flexibility

Imagine driving to work in a monolithic Class A RV. That thought doesn’t get any less anxiety-inducing if you mentally adjust the vehicle into a Class C either—and Super C RVs are just as bad. However, the compact nature of a Class B RV means it’s just as well-suited for city commutes as it is for gritty off-road drives.


CON: Storage

Remember when we mentioned that Class B RVs tend to be smaller than RVs of other classes? That also translates to a small amount of available storage space. Expect to get creative with packing to ensure that everything fits, and the limited rack size might force you to choose between bringing the bikes or kayaks. 


PRO: It’s an Adventure

If you want to experience all of the unique twists, turns and adventures the road has to offer, there are few better vehicles for doing so than a Class B RV. Their compact nature means the lines between indoors and outdoors are blurred, which can translate to some unforgettable experiences when you’re on the road. No other RV class lets you experience the world around you quite like a Class B, making it the perfect ride for RVers who are just as much about the journey as the destination.


While these might be the main strengths (and weaknesses) of owning a Class B, there’s plenty more that can influence your experiences behind the wheel. Proper maintenance, detailing and storage can all radically transform the quality (and quantity) of your motorhome adventures!

RV Fire Safety Tips

Unfortunately, thousands of RV-related fires put the lives of RVers in danger every year. As part of October’s National Fire Safety Month, we’re sharing fire prevention tips and a fire suppression product in an effort to keep RVers safe and sound.

“We’re focused on making RVing as safe and enjoyable as possible, so it’s important for us to address RV fire safety,” says Chuck Lasley, director with NIRVC, who regularly conducts fire safety talks at RV rallies. 

Top RV Fire Safety Tips

Inspect and clean interior, exterior and engine compartments. Remove dirt, grime and debris from under the refrigerator, propane area, battery storage compartments, generator compartment, engine compartment, fuel tank, oil reservoir, hydraulic containers, Aqua Hot/Oasis system, etc.

  • Pay attention to the electrical – Look for loose or frayed wires and loose connections 
  • Inspect the undercarriage – Look for dragging, hanging or loose parts 
  • Install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and test them regularly – Class A RVs should have at least two (2) detectors
  • Have at least three (3) fire extinguishers – including a white fire extinguisher – and check them regularly. Locate extinguishers in the kitchen, bedroom and an outside compartment

“It’s critical to establish and follow a regular inspection and cleaning schedule whenever you’re getting ready to leave for a trip or once you return from a trip,” says Lasley. “In addition, the importance of an annual service appointment can’t be overstated because professionals know what to look for and can catch things owners might have missed.”

RV Fire Suppression Product

Since thousands of RV fires happen each year, NIRVC offers and installs THIA by Proteng, a patent-pending, advanced fire suppression system. In the event of a fire, the THIA devices quickly and automatically disperse FM-200, an extinguishing agent that covers the heat source and can prevent, suppress, and extinguish fires.

THIA by Proteng systems are customized to each RV and consist of multiple self-contained devices that wind through specific areas of the RV that can be prone to fire. There’s no better protection for you and your RV.
