I assumed it was winterizer and water. So....long story short, I don't trust that anything was done correctly, or if he even knew a water filter existed. I think we will have to empty ALL of our tanks/water, then sanitize and start anew. PITA...
you don't need to winterize a holding tank, if it's empty. some add a gallon of antifreeze but an empty tank doesn't need it. and that goes for the FW tank too.
so, he could have just added some antifreeze and there was still some poo left in it.
and NEVER believe the holding tank idiot lights. they are notorious for their inaccuracies. that's why many drill the sensors out and install aftermarket sensors.
winterizing is more for the water lines, not the holding tanks. that's why you should never put antifreeze in the WH or the FW tank. it's unnecessary and you'll have to use a lot of water to flush the taste out.
