Question: Dear Luise: I have another question i cant afford to have someone do any of the work so i will try to blown out the water lines with a air pump myself but also i cant afford a cove so i was going to try and find some tarps and bungy cords to protect it from ice and snow storms i have no indoor storage do you have any other winter protection ideas because its so late in season i will be doing most of restoration in the spring. C.
Answer: Dear C. You need to cover it but you also need air circulation to prevent mold and “sweating.”
The best way to do that inexpensively is to build a gabled, tent frame over it and then cover it with tarps or plastic. It has to be secured with heavy rope cables so it won’t take off in winter storms. Blessings, Luise
