If closing your cabin for the season, take the following precautions:
- Drain and shut off all pipes to outside faucets.
- If heated, leave inside faucets dripping and cabinets open to expose plumbing to warmer air.
- Take all high-valued items, such as televisions, VCRs, stereos and the likes with you.
- Consider installing a silent security alarm, even though it requires leaving on your electricity.
- Have a neighbor check your home occasionally to ensure that it is safely secured.
