We live in Wisconsin where the winters are plenty long and cold. We have used the blow-out method for several years on 2 different TT without any problems. We just systematically go from one end of the camper to the other making sure that all water is out of the water heater first, do cold water valves and toilets, showers, sinks and then move to hot water valves. Also we have low point drains that I leave open and finally, we add RV to all traps, drains and to the toilets. Never have had an issue.

Use a water heater bypass kit for the filter. The type with 2 valves from camco. I got this tip from my dealer, Rousseau's RV.

Before you put any antifreeze in place the jug in the freezer overnight. If it freezes and expands you may have a bad batch of antifreeze. I've seen posts of defective stuff hitting the market.

That would probably work Choo Choo,,, if you had room to install it,,, I was think there was a by-pass plug made,,, like the plug you can get to by-pass a Refrigerator filter !


Maybe it is just something I have dreamed up !!!
I will in the future make Damm sure the canister in empty after blowing Sys. out !!!
