Customers have to provide the depots with the exact dates the vehicle will be in Mexico. When traveling in Mexico, traveler assistance is not available and any repair costs, towing or fines occurred in Mexico are the renter’s responsibility.

Travelling in Winter:

Each motorhome has to be winterized from November to April in Denver, Chicago, Boston, New York, Dallas, Atlanta, Seattle and Salt Lake City(rental location and period may vary depending on the weather and temperatures) to prevent freezing. This will include the water pipes, toilet, fresh water tanks, sink, shower, external shower, hot water heater and holding tanks. Winterization requires that water be drained from the fresh water tank, hot water heater and both waste tanks. Once the vehicle is winterized, no water can be put into the
fresh water tank and it cannot be hooked up to the city water supply anymore. Therefore, no water at all is available in the motorhome. The toilet, however, can still be used as long as windshield washer antifreeze is poured down to rinse.

Pink RV antifreeze has been run through all the pipes and put into the black and grey tanks. If the renter removes this antifreeze and put water into the system, the tanks and pipes will crack. If this happens, he/she will be responsible for repairing these systems and any other damages caused by cracking pipes/tanks.

It is the renter’s responsibility to have the vehicle re-winterized on the return trip (if de- winterized for a trip to an area with warmer temperatures). Upon return, if the renter presents us with a receipt for either winterization or de-winterization, we will reimburse him/her, up to a maximum of USD $75. If the renter does not have a receipt, we will keep the security deposit and charge him /her for any additional costs incurred in repairing damaged pipes, tanks, water heater, walls, floors etc.
