When you winterize don't forget to turn the water heater bypass on and drain the water heater. Bypass is located on back side of the water heater, probably under sink or in another closet. Forest River uses a backflow valve so only one valve is needed.
You should also use the same procedure when purifying fresh water tank and lines. You don't want bleach in hot water tank. Hot water tank should be cleaned with vinegar.

Installed the bypass kit last night. Had to remove screws for water pump to remove the fresh water connection. No leaks from pumping water. Hopefully all is good!!
