have to buy a kit from rv dealer to put on the suction side of water pump.
dont put antifreeze in fresh tank.
do not forget to remove water filter.


drain low point hoses.
drain hw heater
drain fresh water

run all taps
run inside and outside shower
run toilet
dump remaining antifreeze in traps when done.

mine takes about 3 gallons.

You should have an "Antifreeze Inlet" right between the city water connection and the water tank fill port. Turn off the valve that goes from the water tank to the pump and turn on the valve that goes up and leads to the antifreeze inlet. Put a hose in some antifreeze and turn on the pump. You should get a bypass kit or one of those solid plates for the water filter canister so you don't use so much antifreeze.

I have a 2012 Flagstaff 27BESS which is the exact same trailer and that's how mine is.
