It's very easy to install and will save you money and time!

But it'll take longer to get the antifreeze out of the fw tank.

You may have to flush tank many times to get it all out.
Which brings another question. How do you sanitize? Bleach mixture? Another specialized chemical? I home brew beer and have bottle sanitizer, can't be too much different, right?

Or remove water filter and drain canister, run antifreeze thru your outside shower if you have one.
Toilet, inside shower and all taps.

HW drain and bypass is actually first item on my list AFTER I remove the contents. This is my first trailer and first time having to do this so I am nervous and don't want to forget anything critical. The bypass valves are easily accessible, everything is under one of the bunks and easily reachable.

Fairly simple setup, kitchen sink, bathroom sink, toilet, and shower. Nothing outside...

Hope those videos showed you how to empty and bypass your hot water heater tank. Otherwise you will waste 6-10 gallons of antifreeze. By the way, that pick stuff won't kill you but it is NOT lemonade. YUCK!!!!

Is there any reason that after I bypass the HWH and empty it I can't blow out everything after I open the FWT drain and the low point drains. Then can I add the pink stuff by using the port and the water pump?
