Help on Dewinterizing sequence for my 5er

OK I have a new 2011 Blue Ridge and will be heading to Yuma on Friday, and as the Dealer Winterized the unit with the pink stuff when I was not there, I now need to Dewinterize it. Here is what I have. One lever marked RV with a normal position and a winterizing position. Curently its in the winterizing position. Below it I have a lever marked Hot Water Heater with a normal position and a by-pass position. Its currently in the by-pass position. Can someone who's done a similar procedure, give me the sequence to dewinterize it. Thanks

Yes hook up city water run all water facets un till pink is done. Then the two levers switch them the other directions. You will be good to go. The pink is non toxic but try to flush with good clean water.

Yes, put the levers in there normal positions. You want to make sure that you have water in your hot water tank before you turn it on. Sometimes I need to open the pressure release valve on the hot water tank to let some of the air out. I also will sanitize my water tank.

Enjoy Yuma and your new rig.
