My low point drains were so far under my unit, I had a hard time reaching them. I move them inside to where the drain line began. So much easier to reach.

Under our trailer, there are two pex lines (blue, red) that just stick out of the under belly. No caps or valves. Then there is the pex line with a valve labeled fresh water tank drain. Is there something your supposed to do to the low point drain lines when winterizing?

When winterizing you start by opening the low point drains to let the water out. Some people don't drain water first they just push anti freeze through the system until it runs solid pink.

If you don't have caps on yours it means you have a valve on each up above those tubes in the trailer.

I haven't had to do a full on winterization yet as we just got the trailer last month. I did drain the water heater and blow out the lines, but have never seen any other valves in the trailer. Any chance they could be up in the under belly?

Opened our seasonal camper for season number 3. Our two year warranty runs out in a week and we have had no troubles with our camper. No warranty work at all, everything works, nothing leaks. Just had one little visitor over the winter that quickly found the poison that we left out for them.

Plenty of cleaning and such.

Our FR camper has been very good to us, so far. We don't always read that enough here.

When we winterize, we blow out the lines and then pump in the pink stuff. Add a good amount to the drains. This seems to work and is my biggest concern over the winter. I re-play and re-think my steps to insure everything was covered but each spring, I hope that I did everything correctly.

Ok, de-winterized with new filter, installed led lights in the pantry, upgraded bedroom fan, installed fan in living room/kitchen, installed bug screens on all vent covers, installed PI EMS, hooked up Bluray player and lastly install commercial grade hair dryer for the DW. I need a vacation.


Happy Camping!
