Winterize my travel trailer

I have a Forest river wildwood 28ckds and was wondering how to winterize the trailer using the pink anti freeze do I put the stuff in the fresh water tank and let the water pump it thru or is there some other way that I don't know about?

does your unit have a pick up tube/straw at the docking station? mine does. short tube with a cap that can be removed and draws anti freeze from jug straight to pump

I’m not exactly sure about your model but you don’t want it in your fresh water. It will take forever to get that rinsed out. Should be a hose with a shut off valve attached to your water pump. First you want to find your low point drains, if you have them and drain them out. Be sure to open all the water knobs inside so the water can drain. Shut off all the knobs afterwards. Find the hose on your water pump and stick it in the jug of antifreeze. Turn your water pump on and let the pump fill and the pump should stop pumping. Make sure you bypass your water heater. Go around to each faucet and open til the pink comes out. Don’t forget your outside sink and shower if you have one. Do the toilet and inside shower too. Pour some pink down the drains so the traps fill. Dump the rest down the drains and into the black water tank via the toilet. I’m sure others will have their own way of wintering. You will figure out what works best for you.

Pump should be in the area above the fill for your fresh water. I had flip the switch for the pump a few times to hear where it was hiding.

Check to see if you have an antifreeze port beside the city water

What I do and have done in Indiana where it can get below zero in the winter. I drain water heater and all tanks. Bypass water heater. Using compressor set to 30 lbs. Place compressor on city water input. Blow out water lines by turning on the kitchen faucet, bathroom faucet, shower, shower and low water drains one at a time until no water comes out of each one. Pour 2 cups of anti freeze down each drain and toilet. Much easier to un-winterize in the spring or if I desire to camping before spring and want to winterize again because of no anti freeze in the lines. I made an adapter between compressor and city water hook up so that I don't have to go outside and turn compressor on and off. I just turn faucet on and off to build up pressure to blow out the line while leaving compressor on. I have done it this way with 4 RV's and 20 years with no problems.
