Wintering

Going through the procedure and wondering if you put antifreeze in the fresh water tank after draining it? I know to use the pink nontoxic kind. I'm hesitant to put any chemical in there but seems like any place that could have small amount of water left might need it?

Thoughts?

No, no pink stuff in the FW tank. Think about it, after its drained, what would be the need.

No, never put any in your fresh tank...it will take you forever to rid your tank of it....and anytiny bit of residual water left in there can freeze without doing any harm, it will have plenty of room to expand and will not apply any pressure to anything by expanding. Same applies to your grey and black holding tanks. Only reason put antifreeze in the holding tanks is to keep the valves from freezing and to keep them lubricated.

Definitely not in the fresh water tank or hot water heater. I do put some in my black tank as I always keep a few gallons of water in my black tank. My grey tank gets some from what I run through my faucets and p traps. Don't forget your outside shower and if you have a washer/dryer prep. Make sure the fresh water tank and the hot water heater are drained. We leave the heater anode out for the winter.

Depends on the water and how much you use the water heater.

Best bet is to look it over every year and replace it when you feel the need.

Clarify putting the hot water heater bypass for me. This photo is current setup. I know to close the valves on the hot and cold lines but what about that one on the vertical line to right? It appears closed already so not sure what that's really for?Click image for larger version
