I took a look at the water heater and pump compartment of my Rockwood 2306 yesterday and found something interesting. First a quick background: the trailer was inspected/PDI'd by RVWholesalers upon delivery and then winterized. I picked it up and did my own PDI with their technician, but did not run the water system during the PDI because it was freezing cold and I just wanted to get things wrapped up. :/ So, as far as I knew the trailer was left in a winterized "condition".
When I looked in the pump compartment I found the following configuration. Basically the heater bypass valves were NOT in the bypass config, and the water pump was connected to the fresh water tank, not the external antifreeze inlet:
Using all the knowledge I've gained from this forum
, I reversed all the valves so that the water heater was bypassed and the water pump was being fed by the antifreeze inlet:
So, my question is this: is it possible that after RVW winterized the trailer with antifreeze, they simply reversed the valves and set it up to a normal operating configuration to save me the trouble?
I'm hoping that's the case, because the other alternative is that they completely screwed up the winterizing process. I don't think that's possible, as their is antifreeze in the toilet bowl and a small amount of antifreeze in the glass compartment that holds the water filter.
