Destination Highlight: South Florida

Winter’s here, and for some that means it’s time to winterize your RV and store it until Spring. Or, you can escape the bitter cold by taking your RV down to sunny Florida! While you could make the trip to Disney and spend the winter waiting in line for rides and shows, you could also drive a few more hours south and explore some of the beaches and laid-back lifestyle of South Florida!

Ft. Lauderdale

 

Ft. Lauderdale is an excellent location to take your RV, you can visit locations such as Paradise Island RV Resort, Yacht Haven Park and Marina, or Sunshine Holiday MHCC RV and Camping. In Ft. Lauderdale you can shop at some of the biggest and best malls in the country, such as Aventura Mall or Sawgrass Mills. You can even catch the Florida Panthers play hockey at the Bank United Center in Sunrise. Of course, there are more beaches than you can count all along the east coast, Lighthouse Point and Delray Beach are a few of our favorites.

Miami

Over the years, Miami has earned the reputation as a place for sleepless nights and limitless culture. Sure, you can spend time on South Beach, but we’d also like to point out some of the other great attractions the city has to offer. You can kayak and snorkel at John Pennekamp Park, camp out in the Everglades, explore the local art scene in Wynwood, or eat at legendary (and cheap) restaurants like Versailles and Palacio De Los Jugos.

The Keys

The Keys are a string of islands from the tip of the Florida Peninsula starting with Key Largo and extend out towards Cuba, the last Key being Key West. One of our favorite Keys is Islamorada where you can camp on the beach, dive into the ocean and explore the beautiful coral reefs, and swim alongside dolphins, turtles, and thousands of local fish.

Of course, before you make any kind of road trip in your RV make sure it’s serviced and prepared by the technicians at Crossroads Trailer Sales!

Winterizing your RV

Here in New Jersey we’re no strangers to harsh winters and lots of snow. This means that for us RV’ers here in the Garden State, we can fall prey to damage to our RVs. That’s why winterizing and preparing yourself for the months ahead is really important, and we’re here to help you.

Winterizing Your RV

Here’s a list of some of the things you’ll need to winterize your RV:

  • A standard toolkit
  • A cleaning wand is the best tool for cleaning the holding tanks in your RV
  • 2-3 gallons of non-toxic antifreeze for you to line the plumbing of your RV
  • Water pump converter kit or tubing
  • A water heater by-pass kit

Options for Winterizing

Before you winterize your RV, it’s important that you read the owners manual before you start. Working with something like the water heater on your RV can be very dangerous if it’s still hot or under pressure.

If you’ve never Winterized your RV before, we recommend having some help in order to prevent any damage to your RV that’ll lead to having to pay for repairs. For any of your questions, call Crossroads Trailers at (856) 697-4497 for a consultation. We also offer a range of services including Winterization/De-winterization packages at our Service Center!

Crossroads Trailers is your one-stop center for expert answers to your questions, prompt service, and a fine inventory of new and used RVs. Contact staff and let them help you choose the ride of your life.
