What I learned winterizing
Here in ol' Virginny, the winters are a mix of cold spells (so winterizing is called for) and warm spells (when camping is called for). As a result, we winterize and recomission several times a season.
Our first time winterizing Rocky was in November. We camped for New Year's Day and I just did it again. Here's the discovery: the low point drains on the 2604WS are low enough in relation to the water filter and water heater to create suction that pulls water from both appliances. I don't have to remove the drain plug from my WH to empty it.
(I removed the drain plug the first time I winterized and found the WH empty. I wanted to be sure this wasn't a one-time thing so I removed it again yesterday to find an empty WH again.)
I also noticed the filter housing had been syphoned to about a 1/4" of water making filter cassette removal a cinch.
