De winterize

Hello I have a 2013 233s. I remember a while ago I saw a picture of how the hot water valves should be placed after draining all anti freeze from lines. How do these valves go again? Anyone know where to find another water filter also besides dealer? To get antifreeze out of lines just hook hose up and run everything right? Dealer was suppose to do this but it's not work the drive back up there.

It's pretty easy. Your valve knobs will be elongated...usually oval in shape. Lengthwise with the water line is open and crossways with the water line is closed. You want the valves on the cold water going in to the heater and the hot water coming out open. The valve that connects the two lines (crossover) should be closed. And yes, just run water until it goes clear.

What raspivey said. Plus:

I'm assuming you have the outside anti-freeze hookup. If so, also make sure the valve between that hookup and the water pump is closed and the valve to fresh water tank is open.

Also, sometimes those lines on the outside winterizing valves can be hard to tell apart due to where they put some of them (mine were). That one should be at a T intersection on the line going into the water pump. The valve needs to be pointing towards the pump.

If we've got you confused now, some RV's have two valves, one to the FW tank and one to the anti-freeze hookup. But some RV's have a single 3-way valve that goes to the tank in one direction and the anti-freeze hookup in the other direction.
