Winterize the 21SSL this weekend.
It took 17 minutes by my watch. Here's the sequence, in order.
1) Pulled drain plug for freshwater tank.
2) Vented water heater using pressure relief and removed anode to drain.
3) While freshwater tank and WH was draining, removed bowls for water filter and pump strainer. Drained water out of them and replaced.
4)Turned both valves on at water pump (outside supply and tank supply valves)
5) replaced anode in WH and closed pressure relief.
6)Set air compressor regulator to 20PSI and hooked up to water inlet fitting using home made adapter.
7)Due to air going into fresh tank, had to adjust regulator to maintain 20psi.
8) opened furthest water taps from inlet (it was outside shower) ran til nothing but air came out both hot and cold side.
9) ran inside shower, bathroom sink and toilet fill till nothing but air came out.
10) turned on water pump, ran kitchen cold till nothing but air.
11) turned water pump off, ran kitchen hot till nothing but air.
12) repeated steps 8-11 again.
13) unhook air compressor.
14) Replace drain, close all compartments and valves, add a bit of pink stuff to toilet bowl, and put all tools away.
17 minutes, elapsed.
For my money, there is no better way to winterize. No messing around with antifreeze, and if in two weeks we get a nice weekend, I can use my camper, and just blow the lines out again when I am done.
