Winterizing your home is particularly important if you intend to travel for the holidays.

News 13’s spoke with a plumber about ways to ensure your pipes won’t freeze while you’re gone for the holidays.

We’re currently expecting temperatures to drop, so if we aren’t prepared we could experience damage to our 24, later this week.

Daniel Cisneros out of Sam’s Pluming commented, “Certainly something that a lot of people kind of neglect to do is winterizing your dwelling. Nevertheless, it’s actually important to take care of.”

Winterizing your home takes time, however, there are.

Home owner Carol Hawkey commented, “Be sure there is heating tape set up insulation round skirting on almost any trailers. Making sure exterior valves are closed off.”

Christmas can mean vacation travel leaves homes vacant for a few days.

The best thing to do is to make sure all heating systems are working and all pipes are coated.

The best way to be sure the job is completed properly, employ professionals.

“We use a special sort of anti-freeze in all p-trap drains. And we shut off all water and we generally blow out most systems.”

There are loads of tricks to help keep your drain pipes.

One approach to make sure that your pipes do not freeze on your sink is to keep cupboard doors shut so it permits heat flow to go directly to the plumbing if you’re considering going on vacation.

Another idea is to keep a steady flow of hot and cold water as you’re gone flowing.

However, more measures are required by longer holidays.

“Single home, I would recommend if you’re likely to be gone for a while call the town and ask them to shut off the water at the road.”

If a pipe breaks, the harms are not costly.

“It can cost you a lot of money. I have seen entire furnished basements only destroyed due to one little pipe.”

A couple hours of prep now, could save you a headache and a great deal of cash.

Wenn von der boomenden Caravanbranche die Rede ist, rücken meist die Reisemobile in den Blickpunkt, die bei den Zulassungen erneut auf Rekordkurs steuern. Die Absatzkurve zeigt mittlerweile aber auch bei den Wohnwagen wieder nach oben.

Nach vielen schwachen Jahren um die Jahrtausendwende hat sich auch bei den a den Haken genommenen mobilen Eigenheimen das Wachstum verfestigt. Für das Jahr 2016 meldet der Verband der deutschen Caravaning-Industrie CIVD bei den Zulassungen ein Plus von deutlich über fünf Prozent.

Die Stuttgarter Freizeitmesse CMT (14. bis 22. Januar), die sich immer mehr auch zu einer Premierenschau mausert, nutzt der Allgäuer Hersteller Dethleffs deshalb zum Debüt der völlig neuen Caravan-Baureihe c’joy, die zu Preisen und 11.200 Euro vor allem Einsteiger und preisbewusste Fans der mobilen Reiseform ansprechen soll.

Das zur Hymer-Gruppe gehörende Unternehmen Dethleffs, dessen Firmengründer Arist Dethleffs 1931 mit der damals noch “Wohnauto” genannten Erfindung den Grundstein für das Caravaning in Deutschland legte, hat die neue Baureihe nach dem Motto “Weniger ist mehr” konzipiert: Kompakte Abmessungen, Leichtbau und eine einfache Ausstattung, die trotzdem alles Wichtige an Bord hat.

Wie etwa eine Nasszelle mit Cassetten-Toilette und Dusche, eine Küche mit Drei-Flammen-Kocher und 86-Liter-Kühlschrank samt Frosterfach sowie ausreichend Stauraum. Zugunsten eines günstigen Preises wird aber auf sonstigen Schnickschnack verzichtet.

Choice zum Zelt

Der c’joy wird in drei Grundrissen mit Gesamtlängen von 6,06 bis 6,66 Metern angeboten. Mit nur 2,12 Meter Breite ist er zudem der schmalste seiner Klasse und eignet sich mit Gesamtgewichten von 1100 bis 1350 Kilogramm speziell auch für Fahrer von kleinen Pkw mit einem Führerschein der Klasse B.

Die beiden 6,06 Meter langen Modelle c’joy 390 QSH (11.200 Euro) und 410 QL (11.350 Euro) verfügen jeweils über ein Doppelquerbett im Bug. Während der 390er aber auf eine Heckküche und eine Sitzgruppe in der Wagenmitte setzt, empfiehlt sich der 410er den Fans einer Hecksitzgruppe.

Wer Einzelbetten bevorzugt, muss sich für den 6,66 Meter langen 460 LE (11.800 Euro) entscheiden. Dass lediglich zwei Einrichtungsdekors und neben einer kurz gehaltenen Sonderausstattungsliste nur drei günstige Pakete zur Wahl stehen, unterstreicht die Einfachheit des Konzepts. Dethleffs sieht die neue Baureihe daher auch als komfortable Choice zum Zelt oder zu einem Gebrauchtfahrzeug.

Coko and Mike wed in October 2006 and the couple has two sons together.

Coko Clemons is giving her voice a rest when enjoying a significant holiday in Mexico with her husband and son.

The SWV member has been on tour all day long and her husband Mike has been on the street with his gigs as a drummer, that meant some time off from her of her favourite men.

Before his son enters his freshman year of high school, the Clemons made certain to end their summer break with some fun in the sun and brand new memories of a lifetime.

Coko and company enjoyed their stay at the Moon Palace Cancun and shared pictures of their holiday on Instagram.

The bunch is really in love that they started their holiday in Mr. and Mrs. t-shirts. Some of the tasks they enjoyed contained sky dressing table, ATVs, poolside teak, walks onto the shore and colour coordinated dinner outfits.

Here are some of their favorite pictures from their Cancun escape:
