The small airport hangar is a great idea. That's what I have done and they appreciate the extra little revenue. I live in a rural area and that probably helps the rate and availability. Most years we have about 200 inches of snow so it's nice to see our baby under roof. When getting heavy snow I always hope the hangar roof is strong! So far so good. Maybe someday SOUTH for winter.

Good question, does anyone know the answer for the new Penquine II low profile A/C? I also need a few inches to get under the header on my garage door.

When winterizing if you have an outside shower don't forget to purge the water from that line as well when blowing air thru the system.

Some put them up on jackstands so the axles are unweighted, then let some air out of the tires and block the sun.

I took the cover off the AC to fit a cellular antenna on top of the cover. There is not much extra clearance with the cover off, maybe 1-2"? If you are that tight I'd be concerned about any slope or uneven ground on the approach causing the rig to be higher than expected at the wrong time. Maybe take the cover off then let some air out of the tires as suggested here. The cover is very easy to take off, 4 phillips screws. Its light and easy to handle. You should be be able to get to them all with a tall ladder from each side - be careful!

Thanks Ohiobrits, I thought as much since Dometic was going for low profile. I have already calculated lowering by defeating tires and removing tires to place drums on dollies but it appears I will have to go with plan "B", cut a 8" high slot in the garage door header.....

Will this leave enough structure in the header for it not to sag, or even fail?

Yes, the header is only for the 18' garage door. Before making the cut, I will tie the opening ends back to the double top plate and hinge the opening block to swing out of the way when moving the AS in and out of the garage.

Hi, we just had our 2007, 20' Safari LS winterized at a local RV dealer for $80. We figure money well spent as this is our first AS and don't want to ruin it. Little did we know there was water in the fresh water storage tank. We never needed it and would have been in trouble if we had winterized our selves. We have made arrangements at the local fair grounds to store her inside one of their huge building for the winter. Great deal. Check out fair grounds in your area. Good luck. SisterK
