We have one more trip in a couple weeks. Had originally reserved a site at Schoodic Woods campground in Winter Harbor, Maine (part of Acadia). Got notified several weeks ago the campground would not be opening. Add to that Maine is requiring Massachusetts folks to either get tested within 72 hours or quarantine for 14 days. Darn. Was really looking forward to the great lobsters from the store just down the road. OK, on to plan B.  Now we're headed to Upstate New York.  A few days in Webster Park on on Lake Ontario and then south to Sampson State Park and some wine and brewery tasting. Leaf Peeping (when the leaves turn to those beautiful colors) should be starting. Oh the Northeast in the fall!  Then it will be winterizing time.

Winterize time for a bunch of us , was hoping to get out again before but doesn’t look good for it ... darn smoke is dense and ugly. Not good for immune challenges ☹️

I’m not planning any trips this fall I will blow out the lines and if I do get out I will just winterize again might take truck camper and boat for quick trip

We put off going to the beach a couple of different times, but we will be going out this fall. Once some rain falls here I will be more comfortable leaving the place. We did not want to leave with all the fires happening. All it takes is a windstorm and a branch in the power lines and the whole woods could go up here.

Don’t winterize until November usually.

still have a hunting trip to Loon Lake Oct 4-11.

Might even squeak in another short camping trip after that.

Our trailer  is a 4 season Coach, have used it several times in November in weather around freezing.

Its ok,not optimal, but we got by...nothing froze with the tank heaters on and lots of propane in the tanks..

Since I blow everything out with air, it is not so big a deal. I'll watch the weather forecasts and blow it out/drain it when it looks like it is heading for the 20's here. I put regulated air to the hose fitting, and cycle all the valves, including the toilet valve. That one is easy to forget. Drain the water heater and tanks, and add 4 oz. of antifreeze to the sink and shower traps. I also take the fittings off the pump.

We have "camped" in it after I drained it all out too. Not the most fun of times as it is not well insulated. I only do that when I have a place to plug in for heaters and the electric mattress pad.
