Question Winterizzzzzzzzzzing

This will be the first time I winterize a camper myself!

Shamrock 183 2013,has an inlet just for that specific reason....

I was told to connect straight to inlet and turn pump on....

Has anyone ever done this?

And how much RV antifreeze will I need?

If you follow that advice, a lot (it will fill your 6 gallon water heater).

Check the FAQ forum for a great checklist that will get it done with less than a gallon.

Mind has two values by the water pump you have to which them first one open the value from the outside then the other will shut off the fw tank. then if you have 3 values by your hw then flip the top and bottom and turn off your bypass. Then you need a hose to hook up from antifreeze inlet on the os of trailer stick it in the bottle then turn on your water pump.You may need 2 gallons to do it
