I purchased my Cabin on wheels last Summer, this is my first "un-winterizing". I'm havin a few issues....
I had the unit winterized at a dealer so I know it was done properly. They told me just to connect to city water and the hot water tank would fill, push out the air and I would be good to go. I did as instructed, but the hot water (I did not turn on the tank, so the water isn't really hot) pressure is low and very foam-ish. The cold water is also running slow, but not foamy.

I then decided to fill the holding tank and discovered the valve underneath was open. So I closed it and filled tank 1/3. Tried the faucet again... Still foamy and very low pressure.
Might there be a valve or something else I need to open/close?

I plan on starting the generator too; I guess I should do that once a month?

Thanks for advice, I'm not the handiest at this sort of thing and welcome any and all advice
Thanks! Kimberli

Check behind the water heater, to see if the by pass valve is in the proper position, they always bypass the heater when Winterizing. Make sure the outside shower valves are closed, also the low water drains under the unit on the drivers side. Hook up city water and try again. open one hot water faucet to let the air out, while filling the hot water tank. The foam is probably air and anti freeze in lines, takes awhile for this to clear. I think the hot water tank is not filling because the valves behind it are in the wrong positions, therefore low pressure to faucets.

With a 30 lb. Regulator on the city water hose, you are not going to get real high pressure, like in your house, on either hot or cold. You also might check the hose and the connection screens for any build up of "junk".

A big thanks for your help! I just checked for gunk in the faucet screens and there was some "stuff"... Gritty sand-like build-up. Now I have perfect pressure, no pink, no foam! Generator started up too! I added a dash solar panel to keep battery charged! What a great little invention that is! They should build them into all vehicles! And only $30! No more worries?
