I have never put antifreeze in my water tanks. Just get them drained. There's plenty of free space in there. The important thing is to get the water out. If all the water is out you won't need antifreeze but I always put it in my water lines and pea traps. Don't forget to bypass the wh too and close the low points before sucking in antifreeze.

I don't put it in any of the tanks, either. I'm sure some of the antifreeze does end up in the grey tanks if you are pouring enough to get past the traps. Won't hurt a thing. I do leave just a little in the black tank, but I'm sure it's not necessary. I leave the fresh water tank plug out during the winter so anything drains off there. Do the same with the hot water heater after I bypass it. I don't put antifreeze in the supply lines. I just blow them out thoroughly and have never had a problem. Maybe it'll bite me in the butt someday, but so far, so good.

I thought about leaving the fresh drain open as well... But my luck is something would craw up into the hole..

Last camping trip last week. Great weather. Winterized yesterday. Easy process. Backed TH into the pole barn. Now I'm anxiously waiting for spring! Click image for larger version

Not sure. I'm not at home. I'll have to check and see what it says in my info. It's in storage right now.

I have read about converters in TT and some say it would be good to get a 3 or 4 stage charger/converter. anyone know what model is in these now? I believe its a WFO brand from what I read, just not sure.

Something to keep in mind: when the battery is low ( 80%) these converter chargers aren't up to the task to bring them ( or it) back up. Get a real charger... I have a 50amp that does well even on my little Honda Genny. All the charge you take out you have to put back and you dont want to take 24/48 hours to do it.. If all you do is full hookup CGs forget what I said. A Battery monitor is essential IMO
