I have reliable power in my RV garage. So all I do is drain the lines, put pink stuff in the P traps and place eight 60 watt bulbs where there could be water...ice maker, washer/dryer, water pump, etc.

I blow out the lines and, then add pink. Not worth the mess come spring.. Did you check the low point valves to make sure they have pink? If your black tank is equipped with a flush did you add pink to that system? The fresh water inlet should also get pink (you added pink thru the city water conection not the fresh water). My .02

I'm not sure how you would add pick to the flush on the black and gray. That is not even in the water station compartment. If memory services me correctly when I did connect the flush water drains out of the flush hookup.

I'll have to switch between the gray and black systems to see if there is any water trapped in the flush pipe.

I had not even considered this.

Glenn: I use air to blow the black tank flush out first (drain valve open) than I use a hand pump to add "some" pink to the tank system. Don't want to take any chance that some water may be trapped and freeze. I'm more concerned with our 5th wheel that sits on a lot year round (no movement) than the MH which has lots of movement. I still do both each year the same way. So far, TG, we have had no problems with freezing water lines in any of our RV's doing this proccess. Over kill maybe, but where water goes it's blown out and PINKED.
