2. Can I bypass the water heater because I do not want to use it.
3. Can someone point me to a good video tutorial on winterizing? Which process is better, the compressed air and antifreeze or the antifreeze only?
Thanks for the help.
Congratulations on the 179, they sure are a popular model this year, very quickly growing into one of the most popular ones!
You can bypass the water heater if you want, do you mean to say you'll never want hot water in your camper though? But yes you could turn it off completely via the valves under your bed area. You'd want to make sure yo turn off the electrical component of your water heater outside behind the cover. No need to have it heating water and to prevent possible damage.
As far as a video for winterization, if you go to youtube and look for the R-Pod Spotter youtube channel there is a complete video walkthrough of winterizing an Rpod and the dewinterization in the spring. As well as other Rpod related videos!
