Your RV is a big investment, and a big part of your life - that’s why it’s important to protect it for the long run by properly winterizing your unit before the temperature drops. Preparing your RV for winter can be a lengthy process, and often requires specialized equipment for it to be done correctly. Save yourself the headache and trust the O’Connor RV Service Department to get the job done right! Our team helps hundreds of RV owners from Chilliwack and across the Lower Mainland with their RV winterization needs each and every year, and we’ve got the tools, space and experience to ensure that your specific unit gets the winterization services it needs.
The most important winterization task for most RVs is to remove all moisture from the plumbing lines, and then coat the system with RV-specific antifreeze. This requires draining and flushing all tanks, pipes and lines, using a blow-out valve or air compressor to remove lingering moisture, and systematically flooding your plumbing system with pink RV antifreeze. This step is vital to protecting your trailer from winter damage, but also requires the most amount of time and specialized equipment to do it correctly. If this sounds like more work than you’d care to take on, then simply book a winterization appointment with O’Connor RV - we’ll take care of the tough stuff, so that you can spend more time enjoying the last bits of sunlight this fall.
