As winter is almost here, its time to winterize...Any ideas on the easiest way
to get this done? I will probably be using it a couple of times during the winter, so I will have to do it multiple times.
Thanx for any help.

More than one way to skin the cat but this is what I do:
1. Drain the tanks, lines and low point drains
2. Use the water pump inlet to pump RV antifreeze. (kit makes this easy)
3. Open faucets till antifreeze comes out, pour a little in sink and shower drains
4. Water heater bypass will save you a lot of time, and work

Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.

You'll need to add this water heater by-pass kit from Camco. Installs on your pump connections. Will suck the RV Anti Freeze through the system. It was an easy mod for me....I did have to raise up the pump about 1/2" to clear the bottom board...see post 84

Then read from post 135 as Kaunut had a bit of a work around.
You're a long time underground!
