Is this the same process for a Roo 23SS? I'm a newbie. Winterized for the first time, and now we are de-winterizing for the first time. I'll take any help or step-by-step instructions that may exist.

A couple of questions. It looks like after flushing, we fill the hot water tank, and then santize the fresh water system. Do we completely fill the fresh water tank for the sanitization process, and then do we completely fill it again and flush it

I just thought of something regarding this process. What do I do with the antifreeze when I flush the system? Can I dump it down the sink drain in my house?

Yes, the pink anti-freeze is eco-friendly. Even easier, if you can do it, is to hook up your grey water tank to a sewer dump (like in a campground) and dump it while you are flushing the system.

Is there a trick for putting the drain plug back in for the hot water heater? I appear to be doing something wrong because I can't seem to get mine back in. Does it screw back in the normal way?

Yes, it just screws back in. Just check and make sure that both sets of threads are not damaged, and that you aren't cross threading it.

Also, is the end of the rod supposed to line up with something inside of the water heater? I'm wondering if that is part of my problem.

No, but gravity is not your friend when trying to get the threads started.

You have to hold the anode "level" while trying to start the threads.

No the rod is suspended inside the HW tank. Try cleaning the threads with WD40. I also use teflon tape on the threads for a good seal.

Also, remember to flush the outside shower since it will also have anti-freeze.

<I see Herk got the answer posted as I typed.>

I cleaned the threads and applied Teflon tape to the threads. I agree that gravity it not my friend and that is why I'm finding it hard to screw it in. I also need to go out and buy a socket to tighten it up (1 1/16 size I think).
