Carver 3207 Winterizing?

Postby acevesc » September 30th, 2015, 3:58 pm

Newbie Needs Help!
Purchased a 3207 and now to winterize it. Live in an area with no mobile service center that can do the task. There is an RV center but felt uneasy when they asked me "What does WInterizing a boat entail".

I did download Winterizing list form BoatUS but woud really would like to know what has to get done and what can wait. The area I live in does snow but doesn't get below 19 degrees often but this year is suppose be colder so best to be safe than sorry.

Thank you,

I am in total agreement with you, I would not go to that RV place when they asked what does winterizing a boat entail. In other words they have no idea. Some things are relatively simple such as winterizing the head, water system and AC/heat. I usually do that stuff myself. I always leave the engines to the professionals. If they screw up they have to fix it. If I screw up I have to pay to get it fixed.

Are you at a marina? Do they have mechanics on their staff? If so they should be able to do the job. I would certainly stay away from that RV place as they apparently have no clue as to what to do. Good luck, hope you find the assistance you need.

Howdy neighbor! Welcome to the forum.
There's lots of folks here that can help plus lots of info available on the internet.
We are still a few months away from serious freezing weather so you have plenty of time.

You tube. It has some great tips on weatherization. Engines, air-con units, water systems. etc
