Water Pump Location( Winterizing)

I have a 2008 Georgetown SE and have drained and blown out all the water from the system. On the side where the overflow from the fresh water tank is is a hose that looks like it is hooked up to a pump behind a cover. Does anyone know if this is where you pump the antifreez into the sytem from ( this is not the low point drain hose) or do you have to feed it from the city water inlet on the other side of the motorhome.

Thanks.

There should be a visible "T", with a rubber suction tube (for the gallon of anti-freeze). This should be located somewhere between the fresh water tank and the pump, so look along the pump feed line, and you should find it.

Yes this is a rubber hose unlike the rest of the hoses in the rest of the motrohome.I found it last night coiled up inside the access panel. I saw a you tube video on winterizing your RV and then it dawned on me that this might be the hose for filling the system.

On my 378, there is a hose lying in the compartment where the water pump is. That is the anti-freeze fill hose. To use it you turn two valves (1) located on the fill hose and (2) on the the water supply from the tank, which diverts the pump intake from the tank to the anti-freeze hose. Dip the fill hose in the anti freeze, turn on the pump and it should suck the pink stuff into the system.

Don't forget to turn the three (on mine) valves to bypass the water pump first!

Hope this makes sense!

I think ohiobill means to turn the three (on mine) valves to bypass the WATER HEATER first! By doing this bypass, you don't end up using a lot of RV antifreeze just to fill the hot water heater..........you can just drain it and leave it empty for the winter.

I have a water filter in the plumbing compartment and discovered that my dealer has a "cover" that fits into the filter chamber when there's no filter installed. With this cover installed, I also don't have to fill up the filter chamber with antifreeze.
