Hey guys, sorry for the mixup. It is Peak (brand) and it is RV antifreeze. I should have been more clear.....don't have any death wishes here. But it is good to clarify to anyone not familiar with the process that automotive (ethylene glycol) based antifreeze is toxic and should never be used for protecting drinking/water lines from freezing. I do appreciate the heads up, however...I have occasionally been known to make a mistake or two.

Prestone does make an RV anti-freeze. That's why I asked several posts above. Hopefully that is what he bought for the RV.

EDIT: I see he clarified the anti-freeze, it was the correct type.

I meant I followed all of the advice saying I only needed 2 gallons.

I looked at Ace's $2 RV antifreeze yesterday. Label lists denatured alcohol. I didn't buy it. Not in my drinking water. If you blow out your lines and only put it in traps, that would be okay.
