i do have one question i havent been able to find an answer to, i was reading this thread and watched the video in it

http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...-rv-16668.html

mine has the bypass tube already installed, and i understand the process to winterize everything beyond the pump, but how would i ensure the coolant finds it way from the fresh water tank line to the pump? im assuming thats the only line that wouldnt get any coolant in it correct? and using that bypass method would it also pressurize the city water hook up enough for me to relieve the pressure and push water out of the inlet?

sorry i know this is the wrong section but it wouldnt let me make a post in the winterization section and im likely going to winterize this unit in a couple weeks.

pictures of the camper to come soon. and im attaching a picture of what im using it for

Hi and welcome to FRF! "Winterize your RV" is a sub-forum that is "read only". You can try posting to the forum "General Tech and Repair". Being in So Cal there's no need to winterize so I have no knowledge of the process.

Good luck and happy camping.

uchi,
If the plumbing in your camper is set up anything like mine, you will need to pump the non-toxic antifreeze through the water pump so that will winterize the pump as well as the fresh water system. In my coach, there is a hose that is near my water pump that I can put into the jug of antifreeze and then suck out of the jug of antifreeze through the system. Not familiar with your camper so not sure if that is how yours is setup. Hopefully there another owner of particular camper will be able to shed more light on the issue.

thanks guys.

tmmar, its the same thing as yours. i was just curious about how to get the pink stuff in to the line leading from the fresh water tank to the pump. i picked up one of the fittings that goes on my air compressor so i think what ill do is just blow the system out and then proceed to suck in the antifreeze through that line. just to ensure everything is done.

ive attached a picture of the new toy behind my truck
