Guess what time it is? Time to dewinterize!

Spring is here and so is camping season. I spent my first night in the RV this year this past Saturday. I don't have a way to dewinterize at my house so I went to a nearby KOA and got a full hookup site. I did a video of the steps I took to dewinterize if anyone is interested. I used city water to flush the antifreeze from my lines before I sanitized the fresh tank and ran that water through the lines over night.

I have to thank the good folks here with helping me out. The anode rod did not seat all the way in and I thought it was supposed to. I posted a question about it on the plumbing forum here and had answers in no time. So I was able to sanitize the hot water heater and had no leaks.

Now I can't wait to get more nights on the road.

De-winterize?
Round here we just change out the long sleeve t-shirts and warm shorts for t-shirts, tank tops and cooler shorts.

(Sorry- I had to rub it in)

gmacklm, how are we going to be snow birds liv'en in GA? Less your counting the 2/14 ice capades. DW made the 5 hour (50 mile) trek from sloppy floyd to C'ton that day..

Guess ya got to be from around here to break that code...


I noticed the water on the bay floor in your video. guess it is from the filter. I like many have deleted the filter and installed drain valves. the bay now stays permenently dry. I also ran my drain lines out the back of the coach so I dont stand in the water either. the pex lindis simple to work with. PM me if I can help..

But our Grandson thinks that thought is funny.

Wow thanks for that Winter storm/blizzard warning here for the next two days with 25-30 cm of snow. So no worries about de-winterizing here for quite some time.
