Looks like the temps this weekend in NC are gonna be mid 60's to mid 70's, Thinking about taking a local trip, would yall de-winterize or just use the facilities at the CG?

I would dewinterize at the CG and rewinterize before leaving CG. The cost & time are minimal to do both.

Again, just what I would do YMMV,

Just overnight or a couple of nights? If just overnight I might leave it alone. If longer I would dewinterize just for the convenience.

This trip would just be for a couple nights, The last time we went out we just dewinterized, and then re-winterized when we got home. It seems to take approx. 2.5 gallons of winterizer. I currently dont do the blow out method, I guess just because Im new to the travel trailer thing. We have camped for years but never had a travel trailer, just a pop up and it did not require us to winterize, as we never used the water systems.

I would de-winterize and re-winterize. We do it a few times a year to go to neighboring states of TX and AZ during the winter. We have the routine down to a science, takes about 15 minutes and cost is $5-$7 depending on price of anti-freeze. Enjoy the warm temps RVing this weekend!!!

Heading out this weekend too into SC.....

Maybe some rigs are different.... but to de-winterize is just a matter of filling the tank and running the sink ect until the pink is out... then flip the bypass to the water heater....

and winterize takes me less than 20 minutes.... drain the tanks... flip the bypass.
and then i just hook a hose direct to the water pump (mine is easy to get to)
and suck the pink back in.....

easy peasy...

so yes.. we are dewinterizing for the weekend.
