I've chose to move mine to Florida till next May and save the $20 in AF this year.


That's the who I learned my bad habits from. It's sunny and 88 as we speak.

If you are using antifreeze for the ice maker you can leave frig on overnight with pump hose in bucket of antifreeze. Leave your pump on and turn ice maker on and once ice maker cycles overnight you will find pink slushy ice cubes inside your freezer ice container. I laid a couple paper towels in the bottom of ice reservoir last year to minimize the mess. If it cycles for 12 hours or so theoretically you should have all the water out of the ice maker system. This year I am trying the air compressor blow out method another member suggested for the fridge. After blowing out lines I left the compressor hooked to the fresh water hose inlet of motorhome and turned on the ice maker and let it cycle over night. After doing this I turned off the valve to the feed line for the refrigerator (push pull valve) located in the cabinet in front of the toilet behind white screw off access plate in my 378 and then winterized the rest of the lines with antifreeze. I've heard some report problems with freezing on the toilet flush valve when using the blow out method and not using antifreeze so this is why I decided to use antifreeze in the rest of the system. I also change my anode rod in hw tank each year after draining and have not had any issues with clogging of screens on water faucets and toilets some folks have reported. Good luck.
