pinking up...

I will drink the clear stuff, and save the pink translucence(for awhile) for anyone that wants it...it's really a chore to flush the lines(fresh), and the pink stuff stains...safe for gray and black, however...if you have a wash head with your toilet, you will need to flush it...'spensive and difficult repair if it cracks, and it will in cold temps...-20 qualifies as cold...

Pink Stuff

I have experienced no stain after using the RV antifreeze, and have used it for years. It may have to do with the minerals in the water where you are.
To winter store, I just find it easier to air blow and run with RV antifreeze and know that the job is done. In spring I flush with fresh, then Bleach mix and again with fresh. For the first couple tank cycles you can use bottled water for drinking if you think that necessary. The water filter should be changed every year anyway, and I do it at this time. I believe valve seals and etc. are better kept wet. The cheap alcohol that some use may be hard on seals?????

Clear is good and the seals have held...I did have an issue with my water pump...replaced it only to find out the inline filter was clogged...Quartzsite water will do that to ya'...I now have a spare water pump...not a bad thing...i will maintain that clear is an option that should be seriously considered...ya know what's in it, a flush is one tank away, and all jokes aside, yer done in one flush...we have Corian, and it does stain...it's white...kinda a kitty to keep up with, but like the desert sand, open all the windows, drive 65, and it's distributed evenly...m
