Airstream Winterizing 2023

Winter is just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about winterizing your Airstream trailer. As the air gets colder and the temperature drops, it’s important to take the necessary steps to keep your trailer in top shape during the harsh winter months. One of the first things you should do is get a professional service to include a water blowout. This ensures that all of your plumbing lines are free from water, which can freeze and cause damage to your system.

Important Steps To Complete A Proper Water Blowout

  1. Drain the fresh water storage tanks. Turn on all the faucets and blow out all water lines and water heater storage tank and let them drain until the water stops flowing. Frozen water can damage lines.

  2. Drain gray water (shower/sink water) tanks. Always empty the black water tank first, then the gray water tank. Only do so at approved dump stations.

  3. Close the cold and hot water valves at the water heater.

  4. We blow out all water lines with compressed air. We use this method so you won’t have the taste of antifreeze.

  5. Never use automobile antifreeze; it is poisonous and should not be introduced to your water lines. RV antifreeze is non-toxic.

  6. Pour RV antifreeze into each of the sinks (to keep the P-traps from freezing) tub, and toilet (to prevent ice from forming)
