Bulldog-my 300x12 has the winterizing hose and valve behind the felt panel in the lower storage compartment . Unfortunately you have to army crawl to turn the valve.
My valve was installed backwards.

Oh great. Guess I'll double check that.

I just blow the lines out and dump stuff down the drains. But I will check it out.

Thanks.

BullD, that's what I do... blow the lines out with air. Funny Dieselbobcat pasted a link to HF to the same pump, but his is less $$$. I think it says 260 gph (or 4.3 gpm). Probably more like 2 or 3 in reality. But, this would do pretty good. Another thing I would have on the camper, if you don't, is this thing called a Water Bandit, which lets you connect a hose, to a stripped out or unthreaded hose bib, which I found last summer in NY and PA. The CG had power but only water (unthreaded) around park, which you could fill from, but only if you had a way to connect a hose. Just a FYI, Sir.

Thanks bud. I am heading to a Harbor Freight this weekend to grab this pump.

I was going to get a Little Giant for $100, but I like this $30-$40 better.

I keep a couple of the water bandits / water thiefs on hand... only thing I found is that you need a hose clamp occasionally to hold them on the faucet as well as to hold the threaded brass section in the jacket.

HF offers two pumps that are almost identical... one is a transfer pump, the other is a utility pump... the more expensive has a little more head lift and higher pressure...

BUT it is a harbor freight pump... be happy to get a couple seasons out of either one...

Thanks for the insight guys. I will order a few bandits.

HF is hit or miss I know. But I will see what they have. Gracias.
