    August 9, 2020Hi all, we’re contemplating wintering on Vancouver Island and wonder if any of you have tips/advice on weathering the rainy season. We know to expect extended periods of wind-driven rain but will gladly take that over freezing temps and snow

      Helen Jolliffe August 9, 2020 I grew up on Vancouver Island. The weather is GENERALLY mild, with some drops below 0, but the dampness makes it feel colder. The wet can be worse than the cold, sorry. In saying that, the scenery makes it worth it, the mountains and ocean at your door is...  more

      Suzan and Art August 10, 2020 We also have spent the last 20 years (except 1) in the south but this year we will see what winter is like again.  However, we've decided to winterize the RV for the first time and spend 4 months in a motel.

      MyronDianne&Boo August 11, 2020 Our rig is unique and slides have rubber air seals (like inner tubes). To ensure NO leaks, bugs, etc., we bought window foam and put it around slides. Comes in 16' rolls x various thickness up to 5/8" I think. Not sure if that would work for you. ...  more

        Rag doll August 11, 2020 The air seals sound like a great idea. Did your manufacturer put that in or was it aftermarket? And good tip about the outdoor shower.

      beechridge August 11, 2020 Another thing to keep in mind is the outside shower (if you have one) I put in bypasses on mine because it seemed so exposed and susceptible to freezing. Mine just has a flimsy plastic cover.

      beechridge August 11, 2020 One more thing you may want to consider is a product called hypervent under your mattress and around the edges of the mattress if they are against the wall to prevent moisture (and eventually mold) from forming on the mattress. I previously used it on a...  more

        Rag doll August 11, 2020 In guessing the mattress would be more susceptible due to lack of airflow? Thanks for that. I’ll look into it

      Suzan and Art August 11, 2020 We found that we had to keep clothes cupboards open to air circulation and a small fan blowing air on the windows (moved to where it was needed) kept moisture from forming on the inside... but with a dehumidifier that might not be necessary.

        Rag doll August 11, 2020 Yes, I’ve heard from a few folks that a 50-pint dehumidifier should do the trick.
