Winterizing my Rockwood Mini Lite 1905

My husband and I are first time TT owners and had the BEST time with our Rockwood Mini. What an awesome little camper. Now we are facing the task of winterizing our unit. We are going to use the A/F method and would appreciate all the help we can get! We've never done anything like this before and want to make sure to get it right! We have an A/F inlet on the outside of our camper...not sure how that works. The manual is of very little assistance.

Drain water heater.
Remove water filter.
Install plastic pop bottle with lid back into filter canister and reinstall.
Drain low point drains "under camper"
By pass water heater.
Connect hose to antifreeze inlet.
Put hose in jug.
Turn water pump on .
Start with furthest faucet hot then cold then work your way closest to the pump.
Don't forget outside shower if you have one.
Pour a few cups of antifreeze in each drain.
Shouldn't need more then 3 gallons.

Congrats on the 1905, my wife and I are first timers winterizing our new 2502.

I'm not sure what response you'll get, but I've been following several great threads with a ton of information in them. I'll bet you'll get more info there rather than expecting folks to type it all again.

I also saw a bunch of great YouTube videos on the subject. If you have specific questions, fire away! Best of luck!!

We've enjoyed ours as well. It's really pretty simple. Look at the back of your water heater and close the valves going into and out of it..should be red and blue and the valve handles go across the lines (should be opposite of what it is now) and open the line connecting the two. Unscrew the bolt at the bottom of the water heater and drain it...that'll be the anode rod you're removing and it will corrode over time and need to be replaced (I get 2-3 seasons on one). It's a 1-1/16" socket to remove it. Replace it with a 3/4" plug that you can pick up from Lowe's or similar. Other than that, on the side of your water pump with the strainer / filter, the line will split. One direction goes to the antifreeze inlet on the side of the trailer. Point the valve handle towards that line if it has one valve and, if it has two valves, open the one for that line and close the other. Continue as Turbs said.
