ACE Hardware and Camco Anti-freeze

FYI-
For all of you who use Camco non-toxic anti-freeze to winterize your camper, Ace hardware has it on sale for $2.99/gal with a $1 rebate on the first 2 gallons. Even without the $1 rebate, it is still a great price.

Purchased several today.

It's best to buy it early...turns into a mad rush before the first cold snap.

Two should work fine. You are only filling plumbing lines and P-traps and may be a little in toilets. Do not fill WH or Fresh water tank.

I used about 5-6 gallons last time. Need to pump it through the washer/dryer as well as plumbing.

Joe you will need at least 4 gallons. Tom is correct. You will need to make sure the Washer is done. Make sure you run warm water through it so you get the hot and cold lines. It does save a bit to blow the lines out first. I like the lines blown out so you aren't getting diluted AF in the valves.

I use two gallons, it take about 1-1/2 to flush the water system the rest goes in the two sink and shower traps and a little in the bowl to keep the seal covered.

Also used about 5 or 6 gallons last time. I was only picking up two at a time so I had to make 3 trips.
