  • Don't Forget the P-Trap in Fridge When Winterizing

    As I was winterizing the RV today, I thought about the condensation tube from the refrigerator. Even though our fridge has not been in use for several weeks, there was condensate in the tube. I straightened it out and removed the end cap to allow all the moisture to drain off. Just one more place you might want to check when winterizing.

    Thanks for the tip Rudy.
    This is something I have never given thought to.

      Mike - funny you mention this. I have thought about this for years but never done it. It was a few years ago when Rob shared to configure a "P" trap bend in the tube rather than just have a straight run down. When I winterize in a few weeks, I will need to check the tube to see if any breaks from possible past freezing. I have not noticed moisture from a possible line break in the fridge area behind the exterior vent cover when I have checked a few times. The good thing is that the tube on our Atwood Helium is pretty darn pliable.

      I see you got the new truck in your signature. I'm envious ! Think Andi needs to update hers yet. Hope you guys are doing well.
