rv anti freeze

this time of year we start thinking of winter storage, those of us that store outside and in the north. I was reading ads for labor day and saw Ace hardware had there Rv anti freeze on sale 2 for $7. I work for another big box store, not Ace just thoght this was a good price - this was an ad in southwest Pa. thought campers and boaters might like to know...

Yes, Fall is coming! I'm looking forward to at least one or two crisp - leaf crunching camping trips in the woods of IN, KY, TN.
BTW- Wally World house brand RV antifreeze is almost a buck cheaper at $2.58.
Happy Trails!

Yup just bought some yesterday at that price at my local Wallywold. They always have the best price.

our local ace hardware normally runs some specials on antifreeze at $1.99/gal limit 2. at least they have in the past. i'll watch their ads and if it goes on special again i guess i'll have to make a couple of runs to get stock for the winter.

Keep an eye on the amount of propylene-glycol in the product. Some of the aggressively priced Cheap Charlie's Camper Club house brands may be simply watered down. Typical Marne/RV antifreeze, aka "the pink stuff" is about 30% propylene-glycol. A few % either way doesn't matter much.

Propylene-glycol is often called "non-toxic". Significantly LESS toxic (than ethyl-glycol) is probably more accurate. NEVER use ethyl-glycol based anti-freeze, or even propylene-glycol with rust inhibitors etc in the RV fresh water system or anything other than systems that call for it!
