when winterizing and adding pink anti freeze

Do I need straight pink or a mixture of pink and fresh warer?

Straight straight straight...otherwise you will dilute it and reduce its effectiveness.

Yes, put it in straight. It's not like the AF you put in your car where you have to not only worry about it's freezing point but also it's heat-transfer capabilities.

It's mostly there to push all the water out of your lines.

Depends on what you purchase. I just use straight as well but you can find some you dilute with water.
Camco RV Antifreeze Concentrate - 36 ounces of Concentrate Makes 1 Gallon of Antifreeze, Just Add Fresh Water, Great for Use in RVs, Boats, Vacation Homes and Pools - Pack of 2 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MGHVRVG..._l6fpAb13BPYGQ

I buy something you don't mix.
PEAK PER0A3 RV and Marine Antifreeze - 1 Gallon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BGS2HLK..._r7fpAbQP9457C

Be sure to read the label!

I read through that whole page to make sure this wasn't a joke product like blinker fluid or something.

This stuff is $8/gallon. Who would buy this when you can get the regular stuff that you don't have to add water to at most stores for around $3/gallon?

Yea didn't look at pricing just examples but seems to be seasonal pricing...I think I paid about $4 a gallon for premixed but I bought in spring. Even Wal-Mart has pricing between 4 and 8 per gallon right now.

No joke, my point was read the label because not all are straight from the bottle.
