When you winterized your RV, you ran antifreeze through all your water lines (except the water heater which was bypassed), and drain all holding tanks. When you de-winterize your RV, you must flush all the antifreeze out of the lines by running fresh water through them.
Close Up All Tanks
Cap/Close Fresh Water Tank
Close Waste and Grey Water Tanks
Close Drain on Water Heater by Replacing the Anode Rod or Drain Cap (depending on your water heater)
Cap/Close Low Point Drains
Locate the back of the water heater
The front of the water heater is easily located on outside of camper, the backside of the water heater will be inside the camper at the same spot.
Turn valves to unbypass the water heater so you can have hot water when camping
Flush out all Antifreeze
Connect to city water
Open all faucets, showers (inside and outside), and flush the toilet until water runs clear at all locations
Don’t forget to run both hot and cold water to clear all lines
Check Water Pump
Locate the water pump. If you are unsure of its location, turn it on and listen for a humming noise to help you find it.
If you have a winterizing kit installed on the water pump, make sure the valve is turned to draw water from the fresh water tank, rather than the winterizing line.
To help clear the lines of any antifreeze residue and odors use a Fresh Water System Cleaner like Spring Fresh.
Disconnect from City Water
Dump Spring Fresh into the fresh water tank (half a gallon will do if you want to save the rest for later)
Fill fresh water tank the rest of the way with water
Turn on water pump and open all faucets once again to flush the lines
Keep water running until fresh water tank is empty (may need to dump gray water tank before starting if you just ran city water through the lines).
Bonus Tip: Check Roof
Regular roof maintenance will help keep you camper in good shape for many years. Check for cracks or tears and seal with Dicor Lap Sealant if you find any.
