I hooked up the blow out plug by screwing it in to the port labeled something about winterization.(It also said something about bypassing the tank). I blew out the lines at 50 PSI for about one minute. Then I reversed the water pump valve and put two gallons of rv antifreeze in the fresh water tank. I ran the water pump until foamy slightly pink mostly clear stuff came out of the various faucets and shower. I poured a little antifreeze down each trap and the toilet. I didn't know how to drain the hot water tank so I set a quartz infared heater at 59 degrees next to the hot water tank. Took about 45 minutes. Any thoughts? (other than take it to the dealer next time)
There should be a drain plug on the water tank. Also there should be a pickup tube for the antifreeze so you do not have to put it in the fresh water tank to get it to go through the pump. Also you do not have to put any in the toilet as long as there is no water sitting above the valve.
