Thanks. It gets installed in the cabinet under the sink, right?? Does RV Antifreeze still fill the Water Filter?

Karl,
This picture might help. You can see that the AF kit is installed between the FW tank and the water pump.

On my unit, the filter is between the water pump and the "plumbing fixtures" so it fills with AF.

Here's a shot I posted a quite a few months ago showing my pump bypass kit installed. It fit just fine between the small inline filter on the left and the right-angle elbow (grey color), both of which were part of the camper's original fittings. Once installed, the brass valve stays in the line. To winterize, you attach a small hose (comes with the kit) to the valve, turn the valve to the bypass position and turn on the water pump. The small hose gets stuck into the jug of antifreeze and the pump sucks it out and pushes it into the larger water filter canister, then out through the faucets. Be sure to set the water heater to the bypass position or you'll end up filling it with AF. The part of the water system that gets antifreeze with this system is small, that's why you'll need less than a gallon. The cost savings will pay for the pump in one season.

I'm sure everyone has their own take on what to put inside the camper to keep the critters out. Here is one that I haven't found on here yet. Last year I used slices of Irish Spring bar soap in my son's toyhauler, and there was no indication of any critters at all. This winter, just to be safe, I will be using both Irish Spring soap and 100% peppermint oil soaked cottonballs. DON'T want any nasty critters making a home out of my new screen room that I will be leaving attached, and inside the camper as suggested by the installers!

Good tips. I've also heard using dryer sheets in every drawer and cubby hole, etc along with cut up flea collars. Plus washing everything done real good along with taking all your personal items out, etc.
