Dewinterizing on the road
My son will help me to depart with Airabelle from the snow in northern MI in a couple of weeks. Airabelle will remain winterized until we reach warmer climes. Last year we dewinterized on the road. We pulled into a large car wash and opened the water tank and other lines to let the antifreeze drain. Since it's RV antifreeze we figured it wouldn't hurt any of their plumbing. Then we addded bleach to about a quarter tank of water. We hosed the snow off Airabelle and felt like we'd molted! After traveling another day we drained that water and filled the tank with fresh. Airabelle doesn't have a bypass on the water heater--dealer says pipes too old to amend--so nothing had to be done to it. We plan to use the same system this year. Is there something we should do that we aren't?
