It's almost time to get your trailer ready for the upcoming camping season, but it's best to wait to do that until the temperature no longer dips below zero.

Laurie Woodard from Holiday RV and Marine in Steinbach, says they wait to prep their trailers until it's closer to May long weekend because until then, it's not ready for water. Flushing out your water lines is important, but she says, what's even more important, is that you've winterized your trailer.

Woodard says, to flush out your lines, "the easiest thing to do is to put fresh water in your holding tank, turn your pump on and run it through the lines until it's clear. You want to start at the spot closest to your pump and flush out all the way."

Once the lines are running clear, she says to fill the hot water tank, making sure to put the plug back in. Checking the battery in the smoke detector is important, as well as making sure the carbon monoxide detector is working.

Next, Woodard says to check the propane tanks for leaks by filling a spray bottle with soap and water. "Open the propane taps and check for bubbles, if you don't find any, go inside and turn the stove on, because it demands the greatest amount of propane to light. If it lights well, get the furnace fired up."

If your trailer will do any traveling, she says to check the tires for pressure and wear, and about every two years, repack the bearing buddies. "Check the brakes and wiring once you've hooked up and make sure all of the lights are working. Then be sure your license plate is attached and secure."

If you find any evidence of mice, Woodard suggests calling your insurance broker or MPI.
