2015 Rockwood 2109s Antifreeze valve

Hello,

We just picked up our new camper a couple weeks ago and took it out this past weekend for the maiden trip. Camper was great (especially in the two solid days of rain!). It is supposed to drop below freezing this week so I am trying to get it winterized before that happens. I have found a lot of resources on here that are very helpful and found one thread on the 2109s specifically but I don't see one piece of information. The trailer has a inlet on the side of the trailer labeled 'Antifreeze'. Where is the valve to use this input. I think it is the same valve by the water pump with the setting in the 90 position to the white hose. Can anyone confirm? I attached a picture of my valve.

Thanks in advance for any help.
Scott

Changed my search words and I think I found an answer in a another thread. I'll try this.

Rockwood Mini Light 2109S Water Valves

Thanks,
Scott

I just traded my Flagstaff 21FBRS --a clone of your Rockford. The valve in your picture is the antifreeze/water tank valve. Just don't forget to turn it back when you've finished sucking antifreeze. A bowl under the filter helps with spills when removing the filter housing to get the water out. Good luck and enjoy!

Thanks for the confirmation. I ended up using compressed air and not pulling anti-freeze through the lines. It was a pretty easy process. I did forget to empty the water from the filter housing! I'm hoping it's not busted when I get home tonight.

I also missed being told about the fuse for the slide. It's a 30 amp inline blade fuse under the trailer near the battery. I guess they needed to run as straight a wire as possible due to current draw. Makes sense, but I couldn't find that info anywhere in the docs provided. Just FYI.

Hope that you didn't forget to put antifreeze in the P-traps(!). Should have at least 3 of them (kitchen sink, shower, and bathroom sink).

I also blow out the lines with air, but for peace of mind I also run some antifreeze through the lines. For the price of gallon of antifreeze, it's much better than dealing with leaks in the spring.
