Winterization - That time of year is upon us again.  Proper winterization can prolong the life of your recreation vehicle and reduce costly repair bills.  South Lakesis not in the business of winterizing vehicles, but we want to do everything we can to provide a quality facility for your vehicle storage.  That is why we have made arrangements with R.V. System Solutions and Brian’s ATV to provide a certified technician who will be offering winterizing services for your vehicle.  Why have your Jet Ski, boat, or RV winterized while at South Lakes ?  Simple – convenience for you plus savings.  You won’t have to haul or drive your vehicle to some service center, and sit and wait on a “First Come, First Serve” basis.  Any additional repairs noted during the winterization can be accomplished without interrupting your schedule for a return trip to a service facility.  A certified technician will be performing the work and will be available to answer any questions you might have.

For Boat and RV Winterization - please click on this LINK, print out the PDF form, and fill it out.  All work must be pre-paid.  You will need to drop off the form, keys, and payment check in the white drop/ mail box (mounted on truck wheel and post) IMMEDIATELY to the north of the new awning that covers the entry gate.  Please use this drop box. Mac will try to keep additional forms here also.

Do NOT use the drop box by the door of the utility closet for winterization needs. It is strictly a drop for storage rent checks. Please do not attempt to drop off your keys or forms to the current occupants of the front building, “The Trailer Place”.  They are not associated with the winterization project, but are an excellent place to take your vehicle for any brake or suspension issues.    

Please note that depending on the work chosen your unit may be accomplished in phases.  R.V. System Solutions will not be responsible for any freeze damage resulting from lack of work order being filled out less than 72 hours before the first recorded freeze, excluding weekends.  You will be called at the completion of the work.    

You MUST call Mac at 405 314 1697 after completing above requirements and/or to request any additional work, to secure getting on the schedule. Drop box is not checked daily.
