It's Spring! (well, ALMOST)

Hokay,

Winterized Hybrid and believe I got through the winter unscathed.

Now, Spring is coming, and I have questions.

First off, how long do I have to wash out the fresh water tank since I followed the book and not this forum and put the pink anti-freeze into it?

Second, once the water is clean and useable, where do I drain the grey water tank? Will that pink stuff poison/corrode/contaminate/react with.... plants/asphalt/soil?

Next year, I'll do better! I promise.

Fill fw tank with 1 cup of bleach per 1 tank of fw.
Run through all lines till you smell bleach.
Then let sit 24 hrs.
Drain tank
Refill and flush lines again.

Install internal filter if you have one and un-by pass hw heater.

Pink antifreeze is non toxic!

I fill then empty the lines with pink stuff, and do as above in the spring -flush, fill with bleach, let sit, flush, and go!

I just let the water run out in the yard. Grass is dead under the camper anyway!
