Need help with my 2012 16'

Hi guys. I'm pumped some antifreeze to the water tank. Then turned on the pump and water faucet to let the antifreeze go out from faucet. The strange thing is there is no water/antifreeze coming out from faucet. I too a quick 1 minutes video and uploaded to YouTube. Please take a look at the link below.

This is my second year owning this trailer. I did the winteriz last year had no problem. I only used trailer 3 times for short weekend trip. Last trip was in September. The water faucet was work flawless.
Thank you very much

I don't think it's broken. I have a 16' Sport Bambi and does the same thing if I turn off the water supply in my closet. Just try turning the water lever in your closet back to the open position. Hope this helps and best of luck.

Something else I might mention. Using your freshwater tank to pump antifreeze through your system will likely require several gallons (6 or 7) of antifreeze. Would suggest come spring flushing thoroughly and sanitizing.

Fresh water tanks do not 'completely' drain... so, might want to consider the 'thinning' of the remaining water in the FWT (fresh water tank)...

Go Ron

Just got time to trying it this weekend. I turned on the 3 volves in the closet, but still the same problem. No water...... Any opinion is appreciated.

Think it is best to unscrew tubing from inlet side of water pump, screw on short hose from a RV winterizing kit and insert it into gallon antifreeze bottle. Turn on water pump and then open each hot and cold faucet (including toilet flush) until they run pink. Be sure to turn bypass valves on hot water tank to keep from filling it. It should have been emptied by removing outside plug. Pour a little into each drain and you are done. Takes about 2 gallons of RV antifreeze. Been doing it this way for 25 years and never a problem.
