There ya go. Get out of the "frozen tundra". I was in Rochester all last week and Monday night had a wind chill factor of minus 39. Ungodly cold.

We are finally warming up (68 miles East of Rochester). 27°F at 11:40AM. Still, it has not been above freezing all of February, and the month will go down as the coldest month in recorded history. I showed the trailer yesterday, and with my cube heater going on full for 2 hours it only got up to 61°F inside. Still, climbing in got me itching to get started on some Spring projects!

Thank you all. The long range (7/14) day forecast has changed yet again to more seasonable "just below freezing" lows. I'll go and tough it out with some confidence.

I'll ask Reece when I see him Tuesday his thoughts.

Jon, I mentioned to some folks I was working with in Rochester that there was a fellow Escape Owner who lived in Oswego. The folks in Rochester said Oswego was "too cold" for them...lol.

Having re-attached my outside garden hoses, I too have been looking at the lows.
It was interesting to note ( on TV newscast ) that the low in Vancouver was -1.5 degrees C yesterday. And, that that temperature was maintained for about two hours during the night.
With that, I think you'll be just fine.

I wouldn't worry about it. I watch the same forecasts because I like to leave my pond pumps and waterfalls operating all winter if I can. It's only when the daytime temps don't climb above freezing that I shut down. As long as it's only a dip down to slightly below freezing and then warms up during the day I don't worry about it.

You'll still be at a low elevation there, if you were going up to Manning Park it'd be another story.

Back in 1969 I debated going to college in Oswego & Cortland. After seeing ropes along the sidewalks in downtown Oswego & hearing they were used to keep from getting lost during whiteouts, I decided on Cortland! We did end up with 180" snow in Cortland though! That's why I moved to Asheville, NC in the late 80's!

Just another underside photo of exposed fresh water lines. I don't recall if this is a '19 or a '21.

That does not appear to be a 19' because the picture shows a step and the lines going up, in my 19' the lines went under the bed and around to the kitchen. But that is the grey tank which is forward of the axle in most Escapes and with the step there the trailer must be a smaller one. Can't be a 17 as the kitchen is street side? The proportion is not right for a 21'?, How about 1 front kitchen 15 Escape?
