Cootr, I'm not an old hat at this but I've never put antifreeze through the water heater, I just drain it and leave the anoid sitting in the hole, unscrewed. I antifreeze the rest (by closing the bypass lines). I also leave the water heater full during the time between outings. I don't think its doing any damage.

I'll pull the rod I have a spare. And check the bypass valve. Correct?

I would pull the anoid and shove a hose in there and flush the dickens out of it.

The day is half shot and I have not started it, yet.
I'd grab the logbook head down to the local airport rent a Cessna for 3 hours and let that sort things out. :-)

Sorry, I am a professional.
Professionals get paid to fly; amateurs pay.

Got everything squared away. Now when I fire the w/h I'm getting the exhaust smell in the camper. I have soaped and checked all gas lines no leaks no rotten egg smell. Only getting the smell when its heating. Wind kinda blowing towards the access door could that cause exhaust to blow inside?

If you have the windows open you could be getting exhaust fumes into the camper. This is dangerous, if true, as you probably know. I would make sure the windows near the furnace and HW heater are closed.

Had windows closed. Had to open them to get smell out. Getting strong smell at the back side of w/h. And yes very dangerous. Is there a vent somewhere that could be plugged?
