Thanks for posting this.
We just purchased the same year, make and model as yours. Great floor plan.
I will put your experiences to good use when I winterize our rig at the end of November. Even though we live down "South" we do get a taste of Old man Winter here too.

Here is a little tip for you. Since you are blowing out your lines with air anyway, get a coupler so you can hook your air-compressor directly to your city water inlet. Then go inside, and only open one tap at a time and place a cloth over your faucet. You will not have any splashing. After you have drained all your lines, there is no need to fill them with antifreeze, since the lines are empty and will not freeze anymore. This will save you all the hassle of flushing in the spring. You will have to run some antifreeze in your traps in the sinks and also put a little bit into the holding tanks to protect the valves.

Thanks for the tip. I will see if I can put it to good use on the Motor Home I just bought. Sorry to say I will be leaving the forum as I sold my Denali.

Very True, but I don't think it would be appreciated for me to talk about my Motor Home in a TT Forum, especially since it is not a Dutchman Brand. I will miss everyone and will maybe stop by now and then just to say hello.

Just go to the Off Topic section!

To me an RV is an RV and some of us just happened to by Dutchmen products.

What is funny my Coleman was actually built by Keystone, not Dutchman... go figure.
