OK, I checked out the WH and it looks like it was bypassed; the lever is parallel on the bypass line and perpedicular on the hot and cold lines.

I was wondering though......if I don't put the antifreeze in the fresh tank and use the antifreeze intake outlet instead, how does the water line supplying the pump from the fresh tank get winterized?

Thats a good question, but I would say that most water in that line will either flow back to the FW tank or will flow through the pump with antifreeze when you start pumping. My setup is different , I do not have an antifreeze intake. I removed the hose from the FW tank side of the pump and used a short hose connected to this side of the pump and the other end in the antifreeze jug.

LOL!!

The answer is, several reasons.

#1 Because I am a woman and we do things like that.

#2 Because I am making a list of issues so that when I call back the trailer place to complain, I kinda sound like I know what I am talking about.

#3 Because I will need to rewinterize my TT again.

I think that is about it..............

And because you are a woman, you don't have to answer to these guys anyway. Besides that, I think your questioning all related to the same subject and it is your thread. I just hope that we can all help.

The rest of this thread got moved to a new thread, winterizing questions and answers. As a moderator, I feel responsible to keep threads on topic, or move them to a new topic. That is what moderators do. I hope I didn't offend anyone, just trying to keep things on topic.

Hmmmm.....this thread was about the issues I had when I took my TT in to get winterized.
My original concern was about them possibly burning the water pump out, and my questions were all related to what they had done to my TT and what I needed to do to rectify them.

Now I am having issues with the trailer place and I needed some help and advice from you guys out there, but idk where the first parts of my original thread went...........

Do I need to start a new one?????
