pink stuff

I live in one of the places where it gets "seriously cold". it can (and has) stayed below 0 degrees for days at a time (not freezing, 32 degrees, below zero for days at a time). I want to make sure that no water is left in any part of the trailer. We put in several gallons of pink stuff each fall, including in the water heater and fresh tank. I know that these tanks can take the expansion of the water if it freezes but its that little drop of water that might remain in the valve that I worry about. I have put pink stuff into the water heater and fresh tank for the past 5 years - no problems. Just make sure you rinse both out thoroughly in the spring. I know putting in lots of pink stuff may cost me a couple of dollars for an extra gallon or two. But I would rather do this than find out in the spring that I missed getting pink stuff into some place and a valve cracked or I have a leak. your mileage may vary depending on where you live and how cold it gets. good luck

20 years of camping and 7 years on this forum and you are the first person I've ever known to admit to purposely putting AF in their water heater tank.

hey, I never said it was correct, just what I do. I didn't know any better at first and it works for me so I keep doing it.
