Small boo-boo winterizing

Happy Halloween!

So, a couple weekends ago I winterized my 2014 Roo 183. I ran antifreeze through all the lines and faucets.

Or so I thought......

I realized last night that I did not run the antifreeze through the low point drains. So there's probably water still in them. Should I go back over and run those pink, too?

Thanks for the help!

Probably OK as long as you drained them before adding the anti freeze.

Better safe then sorry. Open them up and see what comes out. If it's pink, you should be fine. If you didn't drain the lowpoints before, then there is more then likely water in there, or water and antifreeze mixed.

Just a heads up-make sure you don't put antifreeze in your water heater. Use the bypass. It is corrosive, from what I understand.

Yep, did the heater bypass.

I'll just go and do it....so I can not worry.
