I'm pretty sure the arctic ban is just alcohol and dye. i doubt it would hurt a filter.

Dropped our trailer off at the dealer yesterday. I had a few warranty issues to deal with. They will also winterize, check the roof and caulking and install some new toys I ordered. I asked how they would handle the in house water filter. They said winterize with it in place and change it and wash the canister in the spring. The filter is almost shot anyway as it was used for the second half of the season.
The dealer originally told me they would store it for the winter, but when we dropped it off they weren't sure they still had room. They'll be done with their stuff to do in about a month and then I might have to look for a storage place as well. I can store it on my seasonal site for the winter but the trailer really takes a beating in the woods over the winter.

Where do you get your trailer serviced?

We bought our fifth wheel at Stoltfus RV in West Chester Pa, about 20 miles from lancster Pa. We brought it there for some warranty service as well as the winterization and other services. According to the manufacturer the trailer has to have an annual inspection by an authorized dealer to maintain the warranty. So the trip to Lancaster was necessary.

The dealer called and said he doesn't have any room to store our camper for the winter. We called spring gulch campground in New Holland Pa. They will store it for the winter for $50.00 a month, so we made reservations to start the season there and booked the month of April.
See it wasn't to long we are already booking for next season. :)

$50 a month is a good price. I had my trailer in MIL driveway for free, then had to move it to Wading River @ $100/month. This year I'm storing it in the Hudson Valley for $75/month.

We used to camp at Spring Gulch at least twice a year for nearly 20 years. As I got older I just got tired of towing the trailer on the BQE to the Verrazano Bridge or the Cross Bronx to the GWB.

I will never bring our trailer home to LI. We keep a seasonal site at Rip Van Winkle Campground in Saugerties and keep our trailer there most of the time and come and go from there. We usually start the season in Pa as they start earlier in the season. Since we had to tow it 250 miles to the selling dealer for service we figured we would try to a stay closer at her than tow it back and forth a total of 500 miles.

Got a buddy keeps his trailer in a boatyard. They let him plug in for power and everything. It's his winter waterfront hangout on weekends.

Guys, that is what I love about mine.

In the winter I dump the water and and winterize like you guys do but my season doesn't end. My camper has a cassette toilet that when filled with -50 winterizing liquid is 100% usable all winter long. We get about 4 days before having to dump and the cassette carries like a 35lb suitcase. We carry our water in 2 gallon containers, heat it on the stove with 40lbs of LP and have 90% of our summer season capacity.

I know it looks small but it has sleeping room for 5 with one queen, a full and single beds. My Honda 2000i can run in its own exterior cabinet and runs everything at once including a 22 inch TV/DVD, air conditioner or heater and the 3 way refrigerator for 8-12 hours on a gallon of gas.

Best of all, we can tow a boat, another trailer or pay regular tolls on bridges and parkways because we're 2 axles. Something to consider if you're considering "downgrading". :)

BEEutiful. I was out looking near Grumman last weekend and walked in some of the Jaycos. WOW! The slide out and layouts make them nicer then my APT! However, I am susceptible to sticker shock. My eyes water up and I have to leave...
They had a fifth wheel for 40,000 (if I remember correctly) that I could live in full time. The stair case to the master bedroom had me hooked.

The guys in Wading River by the old Grumman facility are great guys. Bought a new Jayco from them back in 2007, but they tend to be a little high priced. They are probably one of the best on Long Island for RV service. I've always had them perform all of the service on my trailers. Three years ago when taking my trailer to them for service, I was hit by a wrong way driver on Rt 25 about 3/4 mile west of them. My trailer sustained $4200 in damages. They worked with my insurance company and fixed the trailer just like it was when it came out of the factory.

If you are hooked on a Jayco like I am, go to rvdirect.com and work up a quote from them and have it emailed to you. Their prices are about the lowest around. I took their quote and visited a few Jayco dealers to see what I could do. The people at Camping World in Kingston were able to meet the price right to the penny and also gave me a good price for my 2009 Jayco Eagle on a trade. Hence the new 2015 Jayco Eagle.
