How to winterize Blue streak Chem

I just winterized my trailer and I can't figure out how to deal with the blue streak system.

I put some antifreeze in the bottle and then ran the toilet a bit, but I am not sure if that is good enough.

Any tips on how to winterize the blue streak system?

any help is appreciated,

Winterizing if using Blue Streak

I emailed Blue Streak, here is the reply....

The chemical freezes at zero, not 32 degrees and it not a hard freeze. With the tank and lines being plastic you don't have to remove the chemical for the winter.
Just winterize your coach, like you would normally.

So there you have it from them. here is what I will do. Pinch the line off and flush to get what ever is in the line out. Pour a tad bit of RV antifreeze into the dispenser.....If I still have Blue Streak left, I could run out before the season ends in which case I will pour a small into the dispenser and flush the toilet to fill the plastic line. It's probably not necessary but better safe than sorry...



Good Luck!

I do as above, pinch the line and leave the rest in the tank. Been doing that for 10 years with no issues.

Looks like I should be ok then....I still have blue in the tube but I added some antifreeze to the bottle and then flushed my toilet a bit. I guess I should have squeezed off the tube and then flushed the toilet. Fingers crossed I should be ok!

I don't really want to go buy more antifreeze to clear the tube of blue chem if I don't have too

We have a smal coil radiator heater we leave In the bath over winter. Set it about 50 degrees and leave it, but check it occasionally. Unit has a tip over switch we felt we needed as our rescue is pretty noisey pup and a bit busy. Use the heater in tt if we do venture out in winter for short trip. The other benefit with this arrangement, heater eliminates any moisture in the area. No moisture on the large skylight in shower either. Needles to say, leave Blue Streak alone.
