Pink stuff for winter or not.

Iíve seen both suggestions. Does anyone know what the manufacturer suggests for the Rockwood Premier?

If you are in an area where it gets below freezing for any length of time. Then use pink stuff. Takes about an hour and is much less expensive than repairs. I doubt any manufacturer will recommend not using pink stuff in below freezing conditions.

Antifreeze this Fall will help insure that you don't have to track down a leak next Spring.

Pink antifreeze is $2.50 a gallon here. Thatís pretty cheap insurance.

I blow out the lines and the suck in the antifreeze. Donít forget to blow out your black tank flusher.

No pink stuff for me. Never have, never will. I blow my lines out and in roughly 15 years of doing so, we've never had a problem.

Depends on where the RV is stored.
Where we live, blowing the lines out with air and antifreeze in the traps, is sufficient. We don't have hard freezes.
Apparently you live in New York, so you should definitely use antifreeze throughout the RV. Except the FW tank.

Just got down to 15 degrees last night. Am I concerned? Nope. Just have to take your time and be thorough. I don't like the idea of antifreeze anything being anywhere around my drinking water system. But I am not knocking anti freeze. If that is the way you want to go, have at it. Personal choice. Whatever works for you.

And except the hot water heater...

Just because someone has been "doing it for years with no problems" doesn't mean YOU should!
