When I had the FR water filter, I found an empty but sealed bottle of Snapple was a perfect fit inside of the glass.

The Check valve is inside the city water inlet. All one has to do is push their finger into the inlet and you will feel a button there, push it and you will hear the water pressure being released. Water flows back in to the fresh water tank or if you have the drain valve open , which you would, it will flow out on the ground.

I take my shower sprayer head off. I also tip my trailer toward the rear so the low point really is the low point.

I remove both shower heads and drain them and leave them off. I also leave the antifreeze in the water lines. If you read the label on the antifreeze, you will note that the temp on the label is the temp above which it will not expand. It may turn to slush but will not expand.

I read my manual for my 5er and it gives the option of either just blowing out the lines or using the af method. For the af method it says nothing about draining the af after pumping through the system and out each of the faucets.

I have a couple of cups of left-over antifreeze and, this winter, I'm going to leave it outside when it's really cold to see how slushy it gets.

Did everyone see the warning label on the antifreeze? It's flammable! Also, I blew out my lines ONLY with a Layton and a Shasta AND a Fan for years and then, I had a low spot and yup, cracked my water line to the tub.
