Winterizing 2861

Wife and I just had a crash course on winterizing our RV. Speaking with a FR rep on one phone and a technician out of California on the other. Neither could verify if the hose bundled up off a valve near the water pump was to pull the anti freeze from the jug and into the system. Looked right to me so I took a chance and it worked. Two gallons of anti freeze was all we needed.

Glad you got it figured out.
Didn't your dealer explain what the bundled up hose was for during your customer orientation? If not, shame on them.

We flew in and picked up the unit so the walk thru was quick. He did point to the area and this where you winterize. Did not show us how that I could remember. 3" of snow on the ground is southern Louisiana this morning. Glad we figured it out.
