Old pink antifreeze

We recently bought a 1994 34foot Airstream.The first and only owner said he drained all the plumbing and put pink rv type antifreeze down each sink.It then sat in a hanger for the last 2 years. My question is this,has the antifreeze dried up and will I have any problems next spring when I first fill it up with water. Or will I only need to flush some water thru the pipes? I also would like to join the Denver Unit. Do I also need to join the national club first. I'm a little confused on this issue. I have been reading all your posts for the last year and am very thankful for all you have contributed over the years. It has been quite an education and has enabled us to score exactually what we were looking for just 20 minutes from our home.

You shouldn't have any problems.

Or will I only need to flush some water thru the pipes?

Yes, you will need to flush out all the anti-freeze.

I also would like to join the Denver Unit. Do I also need to join the national club first.

Yes, you join the national club and the Denver Unit at the same time. Just specify on the membership form that you want to signup with the Denver unit.

I'm a little confused on this issue. I have been reading all your posts for the last year and am very thankful for all you have contributed over the years. It has been quite an education and has enabled us to score exactually what we were looking for just 20 minutes from our home.

Congratulations and welcome!

You will need to flush the water lines - pink antifreeze is the standard stuff for potable water systems...... but you still need to flush.

When you joing a local unit of the wbcci you will also join the national org. You have to be a memeber of the national org to join a local unit. You can join more than one unit - but only pay the national dues once. The folks at your local unit can take care of the paperwork and fees for national. Welcome to the forums.

Old pink antifreeze

Thank you for the help and I talked to one man from the club who put us on to our trailer..The denver club sounds like a fun loving group and we will be getting on the road with them next spring after we find a good 2000 excursion to pull the 34...
