Vibe BHS272, hose for rv antifreeze

I know it's not time yet to think about winterization, but i located my shurflo water pump was and could not find a line(hose) that would be used when putting rv antifreeze through lines in the fall. I own the BHS272 vibe, can anyone tell me how to pump RV antifreeze through the lines when the time comes. Thanks in advance.

You need to purchase a bypass kit and install. Very easy to do

Not with the location of the water pump, very close quarters. The height of the opening is my forearm size.

RV Antifreeze

Brian,
Take out the bottom draw as well. I removed the panel under the oven, and the bottom drawer. That was the only I was able to get to it as well. It was a PITA but well worth the effort... The only other way would be get a hand pump and pump several gallons into the fresh tank, and use the powered pump to pull it through the system and each faucet.

If you remove the pannel where the garbage can is and the one under the stove you can easily get to it

Does anyone else just blow out their lines? I built an adaptor to connect my air compressor to my city water intake and just blow out each water line one at a time. I still bypass and drain the water heater. Afterwards I pour a cup or two of antifreeze down each drain.

That's what I do.
