Thanks Lynk, I leave mine dry as well. It's just easier than have her always question if I rinsed it enough when we return to service

The water bypass kit is (VERY) restrictive! Your F/W suction side of the pump travels thru this,also. The Pics show Dia.of hose from tank and the hole Dia.thru the Valve,noted by drill bit reference! Now you also must realize that the On/Off internal bore is (ONLY 1/2) of the in and out Bore. If you are happy with LOW volume supply in your R/V put one of these in your Suction supply Hose! Youroo!!

Now That I do not put Antifreeze through the fresh water lines,I will probably remove the By-Pass.
I wonder if the valves could be drilled out with out messing up the valves?

By putting White Lightning in the fresh water lines I will not need to disinfect the lines in the spring with Clorox

Disinfect?, you'd be lucky to have fresh water lines period! seriously though, you'd have people lined up ,in the spring, when you open the camper up wanting to "help"

This is my favorite! This is looking from the east to the west, and the shape of the ceiling trusses! Should make the room look very spacious!
