Winterizing

Just a quick question for everyone. I did not use my fresh water tank at all this season as we prefer to have water hook up. Should I still run some antifreeze through the water pump? I pump antifreeze through the city water connection as it is a lot easier doing it standing up than laying under the kitchen sink.

Just the pump shouldn't take long and it's good insurance to do it

I would for the peace of mind. 40 cents worth of pink could save you a cracked pump.

I would. There is still water at the output of the water pump and some may have seeped inside.

I fully agree with what others have said it a good idea and only takes a few minutes.
