We are on the way home and likely to stay in motels rather than campgrounds. The temperature differential from yesterday (Zion National Park) to today (Green River, Wyoming) was 50 degrees. A few hundred miles and back to fall. This will likely be our final use of the rPod for the year and it is time to take it in to have it winterized.
The topic of winterization came up when we were visiting our Russian friends in Colorado Springs. They suggested that I winterize the camper with cheap vodka noting that when Spring came it would be far better if our drinking water line filled with vodka than antifreeze. Okay - I agree that this makes some sense, but I am also wary of the possible practical joke that could await my asking the technician at the camper store whether he would winterize our camper with vodka.
I did an online search and the use of vodka to winterize your camper is a thing. The topic is commonly discussed on camper blogs and discussion sites. It is a controversial tactic. Evidently, the remnants of vodka in your water line might be more pleasant than traditional antifreeze, but vodka evidently dries out rubber fittings possibly leading to leaks.
