You'll also notice the factory screwed up and mounted the water filter too low. I have to move unit outward from wall to get round filter case off. Some of the early 2012 rigs I saw pictures at dealer for sale ads with the filter mounted higher. Either there was a design change, or just plain screw up. Here is mine.

Some hidden water lines people forget about - the two in bedroom closet for washer/dryer prep. Gotta open those and flush pink juice through them also.

AND, the BLACK TANK FLUSH line!!!! could be an easy one to forget. blowed all of mine out yesterday with air, but going to use it this next weekend yet. Oh, by the way, all summer we've been smelling and tasteing anti-freeze in the bath sink and shower>>>> figured it out yesterday-- still ant-freeze in the water lines to washer/dryer>>> I'm gonna put valves in the lines just after the tees that go up to the bath sink in the basement so this doesn't happenany more.

Hooked up the winterize hose, turned on the pump and nothing happened!!! Hot water tank is by passed, switch is turned to winterize. No clue why it's not sucking up tge antifreeze!

Any suggestions?

We have a 385 but should work the same, right?

Got it to work by connecting the hose directly to the pump. Guess next step is a call to the warranty department!

That extra hose connection should be your rear black water tank flush. It is on my 385.

Thanks! That's what we guessed, but it wasn't labelled so we didn't know for sure!

OK. I drained hot water tank, open and closed the low point areas, bypassed the hot water tank, turned valve for winterization, hooked up hose to winterization port and went inside the unit and turned on water pump. I can hear the water pump running but it is not sucking up any antifreeze. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Did I miss something?

That's the same problem we had. Finally just hooked the winterization hose directly to the water pump and it worked then. Something isn't,t working right from the water pump to the panel.......not sure what yet.
