Winterizing Antifreeze Tank

Hello All,

This is my first year of winterizing our 1997 Winnebago, Vectra Turbo on a Freightliner chassis. In my instructions to winterize the system it states I am to put the antifreeze in the 2 gallon tank. I cannot find a 2 gallon tank to put this antifreeze in the system as directed in my instructions. I'm assuming it should go in the fresh water fill door on the drivers side.

Has anybody had any experience with this?

Welcome to iRV2.

The only RV , I ever winterized with an on-board tank for the RV anti-freeze, the two gal tank was beside the 12 volt pump, and the fresh tank, with a 2 way, valve inline to switch the pick-up line from the fresh tank to the 2 gal.
If you know where the 12 volt pump is and there is no tank beside it , your instructions may be for an older RV. The fresh tank, pump and 2 gal tank were under the bed, in the RV I worked on.

Putting RV A/F in the fresh tank is not rec-commended as the tank can pick up odor from the A/F that is hard to remove.
If there isn't a 2 gal tank you should buy a pick up tube; from an RV parts supply; that will install on the input of the pump and draw A/F directly out of the gal jugs the A/F comes in.
