Give yourself a new winterized camping experience in British Columbia. Leave the tent and instead imagine waking up to a winter wonderland in an RV. From ski hills, cross-country trails, beach hikes or even ice fishing there are many options to make the most of your winter adventure.
The Camping and RVing BC Coalition has launched a new page on their website featuring over 150 campgrounds and RV Parks, and rental options for the winter RVer. Find your park and nearby experiences to make the most of your trip.
Consider these tips to be prepared for a winter RVing adventure from the Camping and RVing BC Coalition.
- Consider buying a heated water hose to prevent freeze-ups or bursting. It is handy to have a hairdryer to thaw frozen pipes.
- Always empty your black and gray water tanks before your trip. Add about one litre of the pink RV potable antifreeze to each tank. This will protect the dump valves from freezing.
- Always keep your “black water” valve closed and only dump when full.
- Wrap your sewer hose in insulation or heat tape. This will help prevent ice from forming inside the pipe
- Insulate your RV! Install RV vent cushions for the skylight or roof vents, and for single-pane windows look to modify them with insulated RV windows or add window insulating film.
- Check the furnace or purchase a portable electric space heater – ensure to open the window for ventilation
- If you are using propane tanks consider purchasing a 100 lb propane tank as regular tanks only last a few days in the winter.
- A container of moisture absorbent can assist in removing dampness from the air and help prevent corrosion, mold, and mildew.
