Winter Weather Camping
- If you choose to rent between the months of November-April please be aware that all of our units will be winterized at that time. This means the water system is cleared out and flushed with non-toxic antifreeze to keep the lines from freezing and bursting. If you would like to use the water system on the unit (this includes toilet) you must have the unit summerized. This can be done for you here at pick up for an additional cost or at a 3rd party (preferably Jayco authorized) dealership once you bring it to a warmer climate. It must then be winterized again before you re-enter the colder climate, this is done at your expense. If the unit is returned to us without being winterized the cost to winterize will be deducted from your deposit.
