If you are going to blow them out make sure to empty the small filter bowl in front of pump under the sink.

Yep, and if you have that filter, spin that sucker off and leave it off. I empty it first, then put it back on before blowing out the lines, then I leave it off during the winter. I replace that filter every year anyway. Any water in the pump drains back into the freshwater tank. Forgot about that.

I live in Colorado and have just blown the lines out without any problems, I have seen -25. If there is water lying in the lines and it freezes, it wont hurt anything. It is when the line is full of water, in a low spot or at a fitting, it freezes and expands that it will crack the line. So, if you blow the lines out you are minimizing this possibility. I had the winterizing setup on my old camper so running anti freeze was simple to do. After blowing it out I would suck in some of the antifreeze just for the benefit of the pump. You should be able to get away with just blowing it out and pulling off the lines from the pump, run the pump for a second, put them back on to make sure it is not full of water. With my new rig I have not seen how it is setup yet. When you blow it out, set the regulator at 40PSI. I did make my own air hose adapter. It has a QD on it and is all brass. I just took a male and female air hose QD, went to home depot and got the fittings to adapt it to a hose male fitting. Camping world now sells one similar to what I made 13 years ago: http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...out-hose/69232

Awesome, thanks for that. It seems it will be a bit easier to blow the air out then running anti-freeze...

hey there, I am from Ontario Canada
Depends on additional fees, if they are adding freight and PDI to that price plus taxes...not such a great deal
If freight and PDI is included then not a bad price
Us dollar to Canadian dollar is killing us....about 1.3-1.35 exchange rate
Awesome product with great floor plan
I am in process of purchasing one myself right now, have done alot of research and the Grey Wolf toy hauler is really good bang for your buck

Specifically for the 22RR since it's a new floor plan. I imagine it's a similar setup to other Grey Wolf RR's.

1) Is the water pump underneath my bathroom sink? I guess I'll have to take a few screws off to find out this weekend. Does the pump come prepared to winterize, does it have a hose I can unclamp to stick it in an Anti-Freeze bottle like my old trailer? Or do I have to buy some items to do it?

2) There is a valve underneath my fresh water tank that is leaking. Is this my fresh water drain valve??? Kind of in an awkward place since I have to crawl under behind the tires to get at it. My old trailer had a spout on the side of the trailer, it was much easier. There also seems to be a leak coming from the valve. I've tried tightening it as much as I can (by hand, don't want to involve tools as I don't want it to break) but there seems to be a slow drip. As you can see in the picture, the left dongle is starting to drip. What is the other dongle beside it? I assume the one on the very right (the soft rubber one) is the fresh water overflow. But what is the other one for?

3) Are the "low point" drains, the red and blue lines, just used to drain the hot water tank lines? Do I still need to unscrew the bolt on the outside of the hot water tank as well as opening up the low point drains?

Thanks everyone!!
If it's just the cap thats leaking you can cut it out and install a ball valve

I take the rod out of the hot water tank just to be sure it is empty for the winter. Then I just barely screw it back in to keep critters out.
