Winter RV Tips From Elephant Barns®
What’s better than a white Christmas? How about a white christmas that doesn’t involve scraping ice off the windshield of your RV.
That introduces the first rule of winter RVing. When you’re parked at home, keep it in good condition under a shelter that will protect it from wind damage and ice storms.
