Winterizing and Washer Hookup

I have a new Sabre 34TBOK and in this trailer is is prepped for washer/dryer hookup. There is if course a hot and cold tap in the bedroom of our FW for the installation of the washer/dryer. During the winterizing process I assume that I have to run the pink stuff through these taps also?

Yes, you do. I start with pressurized air to blow the lines out first and hopefully cut down on the dilution of my "pink stuff".

Just while your winterizing carry a bucket to the taps and open valves a bit to catch water till you see pink coming out

I drain water heater making sure power is off to the heater. I then open the low point drains after opening all faucets. When water stops draining close drains and faucets, bypass water heater. Pressurize system with antifreeze opening faucets farthest from pump first. Because I drained system first antifreeze comes out each faucet pretty quick. I then put about a half gallon or more into washer and pump it out. That replaces any water remaining in pump. Pour enough antifreeze into drains to fill traps if you haven't let enough thru the faucets.
