Winterizing jayco 33 rlds

First time-New TT-Started to winterize TT today, read all threads that I could find dealing with winterization, might have missed a few threads but still have a question: After putting antifreeze thru the system I went outside and opened the city water connection, pulled the screen and pushed the little knob inside but all I had come out was a dribble of water and no pink stuff-is this OK? Also tryed to push the knob again but seams like it will not reset, have I done something wrong? Also nothing comes out of the low point drains would this be a issue?

Thanks for the help - Ron

Unless you opened a faucet then a few dribbles is normal, also did you push the city water inlet pin while it was under pressure if you did you blew the o ring off the valve

You need to have pressure on the system, i.e. pump on. That is a check valve that keeps water from the system pressurized by the pump from coming out that connection.

I believe he was trying to get the pink to come out of the city water inlet after he used the pump to winterize with. That's why he removed the screen and pushed the pin to get leftover water out and see the pink stuff if you don't bleed down the pressure first the o ring will blow off

WINTERIZATION 33 rlds

Is there an easy way to fix the o-ring, because I believe that is what I did. It did not reset, when I push in on the pin it feels like like it is already pushed in. Any help would be appreciated. I am new to RV world and trying to winterize correctly but seem to be coming up a little short.

Ron
