Cold Weather and Spare Tire

OK, so it is time to get the Travco ready for winter. I use the sink on occasion with my work in the Travco, but not enough to risk frozen pipes. The '66 has made it this long without a winterizing setup, but I think it is time for one. My friend Gary has a water heater bypass at his shop, so after I determine there is enough extra room above the water heater for the bypass valve fittings, I will install the bypass as well as a connection to suck-up the RV anti-freeze. The resent wave of warm weather has allowed me to drag my feet on this "upgrade."

A week or so ago while my wife and I were in Little Rock visiting with family showing off the new baby boy, I picked-up the spare tire from Chuck. When I got home I aired it up to 65psi and yesterday I checked it and it still had air in it, so we are good to go! I have it mounted over the rear bumper using the bumper/receiver hitch w/swing-out spare tire holder thingy that I took from a donor Winny B. I feel a lot better having a spare tire now.

Today is my wife's birthday, so Happy Birthday Manda!
