Winterizing

Does anyone have an idea of how many gallons of antifreeze my 26dbh requires to winterize it?

I usually buy 4 gallons, but it only takes 2 1/2 - 3 in my trailer , which is similar to yours. I would rather have a little extra than to get halfway through winterizing and run out.

May sound like a dumb question but how do you put yours in?

Don't put any antifreeze in the FW tank!

Did you use the by pass kit?

Type "winterizing" in the search section up there.

You will have reading and more to reach satiety.

Don't forget to use "plumbing" antifreeze that you can recover through the low points at springtime and reuse.

Plumbing antifreeze and RV antifreeze is the same thing. RV antifreeze is used in homemade solar hot water systems.

On my 26DBH I buy 2 gallons. I also installed a winterizing kit. Takes me about 20 minutes for the whole process. Oh, donít forget your black tank flush. I have a manual pump for that.
