where is the access door? should I be able to see that water line by removing the bins under the starboard side twin bed? If it's possible, I would just as soon insulate it even if I don't need it. Going over La Veta pass could be really cold, and if I don't re-winterize before we head home, I am afraid we could freeze up on the pass.

I like the idea of dry camping with jugs of water, and just treating the gray and black water tanks, but I am pretty sure that the chief of staff (wifey) will not be thrilled if she cant take a normal hot shower. So if it means I have to re-winterize before we head home, that's worth the extra work in my eyes!

You just have to demonstrate to her the joys of giving each other a sponge bath!

Winterizing before you head back is a good idea.

When my parents head for Florida in the winter they use jugs of water and wait till they get past the freezing temps to dewinterize and on the way back they check the weather for where/when they will hit freezing temps and winterize the night before.

Since my parents are in their seventies, they have found it easier to use 1/2 gallon or 2 liter containers then handling 2 or even 1 gallon jugs for the toilet.

You Must Rewinterize...

Not only must you exercise all the precautions we've talked about during your stay at Ojo Caliente, you must winterize before the trip home.
The exterior access door I was referring to is shown in this photo of my '76.
The water line is tucked in the angle formed by the floor and the interior skin and runs from roadside to curbside across the back of the trailer.
