Do I jus add to fresh water and use the pump to circulate? And add antifreeze to the black and gray water tanks.
My first year to use it over winter.
Thanks for any help.
We usually winterize around Thanksgiving but spend several days in the trailer at New Years (great parties at the resort). We do the usual stuff--bypass the water heater, drain it, run antifreeze through everything. Drain all tanks. We connect the sewage tote and open the gray tank valve because we have a dehumidifier in the shower (It doesn't run much in the winter).
At New Years, we bring a case or two of bottled water. We shower in the bath house and mostly use the toilets there. Toilet use limited to liquid waste. (We believe there's enough salt in liquid waste to prevent freezing--never been a problem. Water can be heated on the range or coffee maker.
The thing about tanks is this: The tanks themselves are high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and pretty flexible. But the piping from the tanks to the drain valves is brittle ABS (acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene). That's why we leave the drain open and let the tank or tanks drain into the flexible, rugged HDPE sewage tote.
I posted these detailed instructions
yesterday. Please read them carefully.
