Probably nothing wrong with either solution, dump in holding tanks - cg drain or just draining it on the driveway.

Thanks for the obvious solution. When I left the dealer he just left the drain cocks open and told me the police don't mind u dripping antifreeze while running down the interstate. Amazing how many drivers flashed their lights to alert me of the leak. One guy pulled alongside and screamed I was leaking gas from my camper trailer. I asked him if it was high or low octane. He didn't think it was funny. I told him my camper trailer was the new technology that didn't require any gasoline to run. But for those of u that drip and rip or dump and pump....if I see any pink cats around I'll know what happened

It's too bad the camper manufacturers have not figured out a way to make the water lines in our campers self draining. Think about it, lawn sprinkler systems are self draining. When pressure is lost valves open allowing the water to drain out of the lines. How cool would it be when you shut down or disconnected your hose line valves would open and drain the water lines in the camper. When you re-pressurize the system those valves would close. That way the lines would always be dry. Even if there were manual valves that you could close at the beginning of the season, and open at the end of the season (or after each trip if you are so inclined) that would drain the water from the lines. No need to winterize with antifreeze or use air to drain the lines. Just dump a little antifreeze in the traps and your done. Just a thought.
