Liked the video. My anode is trashed after one season as well.

I'd suggest closing them even if you just used air...I don't want critters crawling up in there...!

Thanks for the video
I'm going to check today but was the winterizing kit (hose by the pump/iso valve) an option or did you install?
We have exact same unit and last year I blew out the system and left an electric heater on 45* antifreeze in traps
Like your location,(ATL) I'm in Charlotte area (Lake Wylie)and thought full anti freeze was overkill.
You made it look so easy,if I have the kit installed I know I'll sleep better this winter
We had that really cold spell last year and I fretted about any residual water even though it never got below 40* inside
Thank again

The hose and valve it is attached too was already in place. I bought it used so it is possible the prior owner put it in but I am pretty sure it is standard.

This was my first time doing it and it actually was very easy. I regret paying to have my travel trailer done the past two seasons.

Hi neighbor. I have been parking there for 3 years now and got my Sunseeker there this past May. Great group of people to deal with.

I thought I had finished my winterize project this AM until I watched your video. Thanks for pointing out the hot water low point drain. One more trip to my driveway and I'm done. Great video.
