Happy Monday Everyone!
The season is upon us. Yes winter is almost here. Heck depending on where you live, it IS winter. As I type this, it is 44 degrees in NC. It is probably a million below in the northern states. 🙂 With all that, today we are talking about getting your car ready for winter.
This is something that is highly dependent on your location. Someone in the south will have different needs than someone in the northeast. Prepping your car for winter is also dependent on your car. If you drive a small car, you may not have room to fit things like a minivan. Also think about how getting a truck ready, may be different than a car.
Also keep in mind, many of the things we talk about are every day type things. This is more about fine tuning, rather than reinventing the wheel.
Prepping your car for winter show notes:
- Lights on your car
- Tires, both pressure and condition
- Coolant or antifreeze
- Washer fluid, level and spray patterns
- Wiper Blades
- Vehicle battery
- Keep your fuel level up
- Test the heat
- Spare tire and jack
- Things to keep you warm
- Multiple ice scrapers
- Water and snacks
- Flashlight, check batteries
- Evaluate your First Aid kit
- 72 Hour kit
If you are having trouble viewing the video, watch it here on YouTube Episode 14, Prepping Your Car For Winter
I don’t think I mentioned it on the show, but keeping a weather radio and a way to keep your phone charged are VERY important.
Thanks for watching. What do you add to your car in the winter time?
