32 degree camping

Do you have to sanitize every time you use rv antifreeze?I usally drain everything and use the antifreeze in the drains and traps. most of the time we only hit the 30 degree temps about 5 times max.

If just putting in traps and drains, no. Do you blow out the water lines and drain the tanks and filter housing?

Sanitizing and rinsing out antifreeze are two different things usually accomplished together at the time of dewinterizing. If you have recently sanitized and are just rinsing out antifreeze, you do not have to do full sanitize procedure. Just rinse out good.

You might also cut an access panel to your water pump area and use an oil filled heater. This will move warm air onto the water pump, in case there some water still in the pump.

if you bring bottled water and are not drinking from your fresh tank I would not be worried so much.
