My trailer came with a clear hose and connector in a kitchen drawer. You have to disconnect the inlet side of the water pump, screw on the adapter hose and you are ready to suck the RV antifreeze out of a jug and through your trailer lines when you turn on the pump. Don't forget your outside shower!

Well, I can't tell you because I don't have one. While you may know what an SV291 is, many of us don't. It is a Flagstaff, Rockwood, Work and Play, Shasta? Sorry, we can't keep up with them all, Please when asking questions, put in more info than you think is needed. It will help all of get you a faster answer. Also, once your trailer is a few years old, it is very difficult to find info with just a model number alone. Please don't take any offense, just trying to get you some help.

You may not have one. Go to any rv dealer they will set you up with a kit to do it for less than 20 bones.

Home stores have rolls of clear vinyl tubing of the correct diameter.

I got a plastic fitting (female NPT -> hose barb) that fits the water pump's inlet. Stick the six foot hose into the gallon jug on the ground outside the camper and suck away.

Remember: (IMPORTANT!)

1) REMOVE YOUR WATER FILTER AND REPLACE THE PLASTIC FILTER HOLDER or you will have a mess.
2) BYPASS your water heater! (drain and clean separately)
3) Remove the water pump fuse next to the water pump
4) Turn on the red switch water pump switch on your micro panel.
5) when you are ready to run the pump put the fuse in the holder.
6) when it shuts off (and it should or you have a leak somewhere) go inside and turn on your faucets one at a time until you see red RV antifreeze; then close them.
7) Flush the toilet until you see red in the bowl
8) Don't forget to flush out the Turbo Flush if you have one
9) Don't forget to flush out the outside shower if you have one
10) You must also add antifreeze to the city water connection or blow it out with compressed air. Failure to do this will fail your city water check valve and could freeze the trapped water in the line from the city water valve to the plumbing T fitting.

I have a 2007 SV291. It has a winterizing kit installed. The winterizing kit is inside the pantry, under the pantry drawers. If you take the drawers out, you should be able to see if you have it. If you don't, you'll have to follow everyone's advice to install one.

It's posted on the Surveyor forum thread, so I would assume that it's a Surveyor.

Winterizing

I love the way the manual tells you step by step how to do nothing!

Just remove the lower panel under the pantry door. It is much easier than taking the drawers out and standing on your head to reach the Bypass valve.
Living Here in Alabama, I haven't used Antifreeze for the last four years. I just blow the lines out very good(including outdoor shower), leave faucets open, and I'm good to 15 degrees F. I just put some AF in toilet and traps.
