Question RV Antifreeze - What's your flavor ????

There's a bunch of different brands of RV Antifreeze (the Pink Stuff) that you can buy. All seem to protect down to -50 degrees F. Wondering if they're all basically the same or are there differences to consider. What do you use?

I would think its all pretty much the same....More than likely comes from the same few Factories anyhow.

Ditto on the pink. I use the same to winterize my boat. The day it gets < -50 around these parts is the day I have much bigger problems.

I like the strawberry flavor. In the spring the residual flavor enhances the flavor of my iced tea. And I think it works better than the raspberry flavor.

More seriously, I bought what was on sale at my O'Reilly Auto Parts store.

some of it is the protection factor, pink is usually -50 I have seen blue at -100 Remember the possibility of mixing with water to lower the temp of protection.

You can dilute the -100, but according to the manufacturer, don't do that on the -50.

Tractor supply had it $3/bottle so grabbed it on the way out. Don't ask me what manufacturer. I blow the lines out before adding it anyway (two factor winterization) so long as it is pink I trust it.

Some are pink and some are orange and some say non alcohol and some don't.... I don't care.
Just make sure it's for drinking water systems and grab it.
I paid $2.50 gal recently and think that's about as low as it gets in these parts.
