Don't put antifreeze in your fresh water tank (FWT). Put it everywhere else, but not in your FWT. Drain it to winterize and that's it. The residual water may freeze but there's typically not enough of it to do any damage.

Taste.....it'll take a while to get rid of it. Another thing is to apply air to the water lines to blow 'em dry.....most RV stores carry the cap w/ connector for air hose....about 30/40 lbs. of air is all that's needed...open faucets, apply air till no water appears.

How do u drain water from holding tank. I hooked up my water for first time because I'm coming to the end of my warrant period. Water runs fine , hot water heats well. The sink drain drains well outside. There's another what appears to be a drain below that but nothing comes out. I crawled under undid and open drain plug at low point of white holding tank. A few minutes of very low flow than nothing. I tapped tank it appears empty. Is it supposed to fill when fresh water hose is hooked up? Outside shower works as well as sink. The pump works when turned on.
Any ideas?

Thanks

When I do mine, I drain tanks, blow lines clean, including holding toilet valve open to clear that valve, same with outside shower, and pour anti-freeze into sinks to keep traps from break'n....also, I leave low point drain caps off.

The white tank is fresh water tank that has a separate tank fill on outside of trailer, usually by just by using garden hose with low flow from hose. City water hook-up will not fill fresh water tank if trailer plumbing is correct...if it does fill it, then the pump check valve is defective or has junk in it. Fresh water tank also has a separate drain from other tank/s, either a 1/2 or a 1/4 turn white plastic valve. Make sure you use a pressure regulator when using city water...to much pressure for the trailer water lines/fittings.

I used the regulator before hooking on the hose from the house. I turned the white valve below low point of white tank. I'm thinking the holding tank never loaded.

There's a different fill point for that tank....mine has a cap covering it..usually found on side rather than back of trailer....that's how mine is set up....when hooked up to city water, do not use on board pump...pressure from city water makes the system work. When no city water to hook up to , then the fresh water tank/pump come into play...need to have fresh water tank water to have water for the pump to supply trailer. LOOK FOR THE FILLER. could you take a pic of the street side of A-frame?
