Unfortunately I don't have that option.


Boo,
So, are you trying to be incognito using the kaymfischer handle?

Is that Prestone RV anti-freeze or straight Prestone like for a car. Hope not.

The point I was trying to make is that if you run enough anti freeze though your pipes the result is enough in the traps, no extra needed. Pour to your hearts content.

Is the Camco RV antifreeze alcohol-based or non-alcohol?

Unless you blow out the lines with air before you pump the antifreeze through, the antifreeze in the traps is somewhat diluted. Pouring more straight, undiluted antifreeze into the traps should prevent any issues

It is a mixture of ethyl alcohol and glycol.

The RV dealer who I bought my TT from offered a winterizing seminar last fall that I attended. They made a pretty big deal about their RV antifreeze being a non-alcohol formulation. Of course theirs was about $ 5.00 or so per gallon - but since it doesn't require very much to winterize I went with theirs.

Gasmsn94: you can't use regular automotive antifreeze in your fresh water lines. It would be toxic/poisonous. You need to use non-toxic RV antifreeze.
