The goal is to 1) get anti-freeze through all your water lines, except the water heater which will be drained and bypassed, and 2) drain and leave open all holding tanks. Make sure you use non-toxic antifreeze that is designed for winterizing RVs. If you are still hesitant after watching the video, we recommend taking it to a dealer or someone familiar with the process. Failure to winterize properly may result in freeze damage to your camper. Here are the basic steps:
Drain Fresh Tank
Dump Waste and Grey Tanks
Drain Water Heater
Open Low Point Drains
Open All Faucets
Bypass Water Heater
Locate backside of water heater
Already drained the from front side
Backside located inside RV near same spot
Usually under bed or inside a cabinet
May have to remove a panel with screwdriver
Purchase water heater bypass kit if not already installed
Turn valves to bypass water heater
Run Antifreeze Through Water Lines and Drain Traps
Locate water pump
Turn on and listen for humming sound
Usually hidden behind a panel that can be removed with screwdriver
Use water pump to draw antifreeze instead of fresh water
Use winterizing kit if installed or purchase and install prior to winterizing
-or- Remove intake line and put in antifreeze jug
-or- Simply dump a few gallons of antifreeze in freshwater tank
Open all faucets one by one until you see colored antifreeze (typically red or pink)
Open both hot and cold
Let a little extra antifreeze run into drain trap then shut off
City water connection
Locate city water connection outside of camper
Remove screen or rubber washer
Press in spring valve until you see colored antifreeze coming out
Stand back as it can spray out!
Bonus Tip: This is a great time to check your roof for cracks or tears. Seal any leaks before winter!
