I'll get a photo of mine - set up from the factory - and post it later on.

Apologize for the first photo being a bit fuzzy, but this is the access door to the water pump and filter in one of my side compartments.



Open that door to access the water pump, water filter, cold water system drain valve and anti freeze pickup tube. Note the inline valve for the anti freeze pickup tube. (apologize again for the slightly fuzzy photo, but you get the idea) My water filter is still unopened in the compartment, I didn't bother installing it into the filter housing as we don't drink the water at campgrounds or out of our water tank.

The only reason I use that filter is to keep things from plugging up the sink screens on the end of the faucets. I use a Britt filter for drinking water.

If you are only going to use it to winterize then a short piece of any hose will do.


To winterize I stick the hose in an antifreeze jug, turn on the pump and open my faucets till they run pink. I had two shut off valves added to my outside shower. sometimes I just do that to the shower then shut those valves off. This winterizes the shower but I can still use everything else till I decide to do the whole trailer.


You could blow air thru this line if that is what you prefer.

I will look again,,, not much room to work in that compartment !!!
I know I am little crazy about winterizing,,, I blow every thing out,,, and still add anti freeze !!! To me it is worth 2 or 3 gallons to be sure every thing is protected !!!

Your welcome. I am a believer in a photo is worth a thousand words. Much easier to show something than try to explain it sometimes.
