If you are talking about getting AF into the ice maker lines I made a jumper cord out of an cheap extension cord. Any old cord will work. Use the plug end and cut off the other end. I put the proper connectors on the end to connect to the solenoid. With that I can run the AF through the lines and also flush it out in the spring. This is for the Dometic four door fridge.

Approximately how many gallons of antifreeze does it take? Went to camping world over the weekend and they acted like there was a mad rush to get your hands on the pink stuff.

It's all relative to how big your water system is, but i'd say 2 gals should do the trick.

CT-
I too used about 6 gallons of anti-freeze. Also, you should check to see if you have an ACE hardware near you. Not sure if the sale is still on but they had the pink stuff on sale for $2.99 and if you have their rewards card you got $1 off making it $1.99. They had a limit of 2 but I bought 2 and my wife bought 2, we went out and came back into the store and did the same thing.
Good luck,
Tom

CT, Walmart also sells it. The only place I could find it in the South, as most do not use it there.
