Disclaimer...I am not using a dealership provided hose to suck up the antifreeze. I went to Home Depot and rigged together some quick connect fittings.
Thanks in advance for your advice,
As stated above you need to post a picture so anyone trying to help can post something that could possible help.
As for just going to HD and trying to rig something up, that is fine as long as the parts used work" but it seems with you be a newbie might have bit you, you may have been better just going to the dealer and getting a bypass kit and this way it will work correct for the rv you own.
Hope someone helps you out and Happy Camping
