Water line antifreeze

Due to work(I know a four letter word) we have not used our motorhome in about eight months. I have been able to take it out for an hour or so drive several times and have exercised the generator on these drives. My question is about the pink stuff in the water lines. Do I need to do anything different when removing it since it has been there all summer or do I just flush the lines as usual. Will it leave an anti freeze taste or not. I will fill fresh water tank and sanitize after flushing antifreeze.
Thanks for any help.

Just make sure you flush "all the lines". This includes the drains and the outside shower. If your fresh tank is empty, dumped some apple cider vinegar into the tank and add water. Run this water through your lines and it will freshen up the system.
Drain the tank and then refill as normal. Make sure your water tank is full before turning it on.

The previous post has it down, the only item I might suggest is you can use a half cup of household bleach in the fresh water tank after you drain everything, let set for a day or so, drain, and refill with fresh water. You might consider filling up the black and grey tank as well, and draining them, just to get rid of any odors that may occur when you flush the toilet.

Nothing different in removing, standard de-winterize sanitize and clean.

Something different to do when replacing.. DON't.

Instead use the dry method.. Which you can find described in the forum libaries or others can help.

Still sanitize come next use but.. Easier.
Home is where I park it!
