WINTER RV CAMPING: THE ULTIMATE (HOW TO) GUIDE

WINTER RV CAMPING: THE ULTIMATE (HOW TO) GUIDE

🔥 Winter RV camping can be a lot of fun… as long as you have running water and you don’t freeze in your RV. This video is the Ultimate RV Winter Camping Guide to help you prepare your rig for the cold weather. As we mentioned in video, we quickly learned that moving every 3-4 days in cold weather was fatiguing. The setup & teardown process is longer and often too cold to use our water hose. So we changed our plans and booked 12 days at Tiger Run Resort http://bit.ly/tiger-run-resort in Breckenridge, CO. This is an exceptional RV Resort where you can rent or buy your own site minutes from downtown Breckenridge and close to Vail Resorts and all your favorite winter activities.

    New to your channel and a great video too. I am going to keep all of this in mind when we go winter camping. I am a NEWBIE at the TT life. My question is when we were out dry camping for 6 days our thermostat kept saying low and no heat coming out of the vents at around 2 am. But when we hook up the generator to operate over night the heater comes on when it’s time to come on is what I don’t understand and how can I run the heater without the generator? any help is appreciated. Thank you!

    Put a zip lock freezer bag over your 3 to 1 electrical cord adapter exposed connections, secured with electrical tape (zip facing down), to keep moister from entering the plug/receptacle and tripping the GFI on the RV pedestal.

  3. Collin Andrews on October 13, 2021 at 8:47 am

    Rig…. rig rig rig… your rig. The rig. This is our rig. It’s a rig…. in the rig…………. we made riggies in our rig. Is that a fig in the RIG? Don’t stop too hard. Don’t want to get the rig to dig. I keep a welder in my rig. It’s a tig. It’s kind of big inside this rig. Rig.

  4. Just ME on October 13, 2021 at 8:48 am

    This is almost like This Old House but for camping

  5. SUBTT67 on October 13, 2021 at 8:49 am

    How different your systems are compared to our systems in Northern Europe. For example we never use any skirts for RV. The fresh air comes through the floor ventilation and all fresh air is warmed up in radiator.

    Kudos to that dude to take her regardless of her disabilities under his wing to provide a good life for her. Autism is something we all should come to love and accept.

  7. DSarg1 on October 13, 2021 at 8:53 am

    Is your RV a 4 season type?

  8. Doug Smith on October 13, 2021 at 8:53 am

    Any kind of lock nut over that wing nut on the propane tank holder?

  9. Gene Thomsen on October 13, 2021 at 8:53 am

    I have been trying to find the video you did when changing rigs where you mentioned something that goes under your mattress to help it breathe.
    .I cant find it, can you point me in the right direction?

  10. Michael Bosquez sr on October 13, 2021 at 8:55 am

    Thank you both..as this is going to help me so much… thank you also for the tip on the propane… Companies will find anyway to rip off consumers.. again thank you so much

  11. buck whilde on October 13, 2021 at 8:55 am

    As newbee full timers this will be our first winter in New England, thanks for the info! Stay warm!

  19. K O on October 13, 2021 at 9:04 am

    You should buy a arctic fox or outdoors RV made by the same people there 4 season heated underbelly and another suggestion is don’t camp in the winter

  20. deenibeeniable on October 13, 2021 at 9:04 am

    Always stab the box your hose comes in with a large knife.

  21. CHOSEN ONE on October 13, 2021 at 9:06 am

    How do you keep your windows from freezing and the moisture from coming inside the windows. Loved your video, thanks

  22. S. S. on October 13, 2021 at 9:06 am

    Can you do or direct me to a episode of how people have or if you are using plank boards for snow and ice step up’s under trailer tires to level in bad campsites.
    Appreciate all your videos and insights and information. Thanks

  23. The Diabetic Diet Show on October 13, 2021 at 9:09 am

    A tip to heat water lines, Run a hose to a "Y" from your heater. Pick a size 1 1/4 or 1 1/2" Then run your pex water hose inside that. Run the hose to the tank. Y off back to the inside of the camper. maybe an outside cabinet you want to heat a little. Your heater will blow air through the big hose from your heater and blow it back into the inside of the camper. Heating the hose and the camper. We do this with sump pump discharge pipes here in Chicago IL. Here are some of "my camping" meals I can share with you. ​​@6eEQ Please comment let me know what you think. If you think this is a good idea please "LIKE".

  24. Dan Thompson on October 13, 2021 at 9:10 am

    Nice

  25. Michelle Cloutier on October 13, 2021 at 9:12 am

    How difficult is it to drive your rv in the snow

  26. R H on October 13, 2021 at 9:15 am

    Call me back when your in -20 or -30 weather

  27. Miguel Herrara on October 13, 2021 at 9:15 am

    Hi! Love your videos. It’s just above freezing and I’m selling my trailer. Any thoughts on opening the slide? Too cold? And how about turning on the furnace? Any concern with that? Thanks!

  28. Tina Salicco-Jackson on October 13, 2021 at 9:15 am

    Thank you so much for this video!! We may need to full time RV in Ontario, Canada and I’ve been super nervous! This was great information 💞

  29. wolfmooch on October 13, 2021 at 9:18 am

    your temp sensor needs an alarm capability too..

  30. Keep Your Daydream on October 13, 2021 at 9:18 am

    For those that think this is commercial… these are the products we found helpful for camping in the winter. We are not paid from these companies. You CAN winter camp without buying products, but it will not likely resemble a normal RVing experience. i.e. Water turned off or covering the windows is not how we enjoy living in our RV. These products help us live as normal as possible. For those that travel like us and are not appose buying products to make your experience easier, we hope you found this helpful.

  31. John Stiller on October 13, 2021 at 9:20 am

    Just getting into winter RV camping for the ski season in CO. and this was great! Thank you!

  32. Alex K on October 13, 2021 at 9:22 am

    I hope you can reply…what do you do with water lines inside when transporting in-between 2 destinations, in sub-freezing temperature? Otherwise, great information. I hope to camp with my trailer in winter and enjoy the slops. Thank you in advance.

  33. Monica Fonseca on October 13, 2021 at 9:23 am

    Just bought our RV to finally fulfill our dreams of northern snow filled fun, only to recently "learn" (while attempting to make reservations) there aren’t campgrounds with sewage and water from Nov-March but it seems Tiger run has has both? Very new at this, so just wanting to confirm… Is this so? Does Tiger run offer sewage and water in the winter months? If so, are they the only campground that offer sewer and water? Fingers crossed our dreams will come true after all! We are from Louisiana and have no winter-ing RV knowledge. Thank you! 🙂

  34. PL Enn on October 13, 2021 at 9:25 am

    Blue rhino wants to speak with you lol

  35. brenda taylor on October 13, 2021 at 9:26 am

    Great advice
    The Camco heated water hose is amazing, we just use it all year now. Keep cool water cool.
    Heated tape on the Park Faucet is a must. Covering the vents is clever. We lived through the TX Freeze of 2021 without the Skirt. Ordering the Skirt today! Even though we have Thermal Paine windows. I did blue painters tape the shades to the frame to prevent any infiltration loss.

  36. Roger Groover on October 13, 2021 at 9:29 am

    The ice cream reference was LOL. Great video you guys, love your interaction together! Keep it up!

  37. Andrew Cleghorn on October 13, 2021 at 9:29 am

    Why are you dissing Camco products? Who else has these kinds of accessories that are better and just as readily available?

  38. T270 WHISPERER on October 13, 2021 at 9:30 am

    With the way life is today, Stock Market Crash, Hurricane Katrina, Mortgage Crash, and now with Covid, i sometime casually think about having a nice small camper to live out of and not have to worry about rent or a mortgage anymore. I can’t afford a camper but if i could, i would think seriously about this kind of life.

  39. Boston SAM on October 13, 2021 at 9:31 am

    I want to use my camper for snowmobiling in northern Maine Bingham area

  40. Joe , Tropical depot on October 13, 2021 at 9:32 am

    You guys are like the best married couple I’ve ever seen doing these rv camper videos

  41. Wes Sprouse on October 13, 2021 at 9:33 am

    Being full time, how do you get your mail? ?

  42. Hunting Adventures With Sy on October 13, 2021 at 9:34 am

    Why would you not just keep your tanks open and then you won’t have to worry about freezing?

  43. Ted Deveraux on October 13, 2021 at 9:36 am

    How often does your heater cycle when you’re in the teens?

  44. Ben Barker on October 13, 2021 at 9:39 am

    Dude dont leave your truck plugged in all plug it into a timer plug at least btw Canadian here. Gets cold here and my cummins very rarely gets plugged in. Good info tho. pretty much all camping closes all winter here

  45. Allen Hare on October 13, 2021 at 9:39 am

    Thanks for all the great information.
    I’ve always liked winter camping, and you’ve shown me some good ways to do it better.
    Stay Warm

  46. Brady Wimmer on October 13, 2021 at 9:41 am

    OMG this is just what I was looking for!!! We are building our new home and we get the joy of living on our property on Lookout Mountain, just above Denver, 7,400 ft. We have a 40′ Raptor Toy Hauler with the Extreme Weather package and I was wondering if we’d need a skirt. So much great advice in this video and in the thread of comments.

  47. yobabybubba on October 13, 2021 at 9:41 am

    Great video. Hey, I’m wondering if I could travel from New York to Florida now and use my toilet while my RV is winterized. Could I flush with anti freeze? Looking to boon dock a few nights on the way down.

  48. Richard Filcoff on October 13, 2021 at 9:44 am

    Interesting and enjoyable video. We have stayed at Tiger Run during warmer months. It is a wonderful place to stay and very near to Breckenridge. In the interest of electrical safety, I recommend that any electrical devices that are used outside of the RV be connected to a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) protected outlet. This is especially important when the ground is wet or snow-covered. Also, many, if not most, space heater manufacturers specifically state in their user instructions not to power the heater through an extension cord. It would be extension best to power the space heater(s) from outlet(s) inside the RV. Also, the adapter that expands the number of outlets that are available at the pedestal does not increase the amount of electrical current that is available from the pedestal. The conventional/duplex outlets that are on most campground pedestals are rated at 20 Amps. If you are going to use an outlet expander and want to be able to use the full amount of electrical current, then be sure to get an outlet expander that is rated at 20 Amps. Safe travels.

  49. Todd Maly on October 13, 2021 at 9:45 am

    Does your rig have a artic package?

  50. Steve Hildreth on October 13, 2021 at 9:46 am

    Some good tips! We are in northern Idaho with a brand new 37 foot 5th Wheel. It’s going to be home while we develop our acreage and start building a house in the spring. Winters here can be harsh. I’m already planning on some of your winter tips and just picked up a few more!
