By pass winterizing plate

Is it worth the $15.00?

Glad to have you here with us.

I'm sorry but I'm not sure what a winterizing by-pass plate is. Can you give us a bit more info?

Strictly a guess, but perhaps the OP is talking about a plate to block off the water filter housing like this: Winterizing By-Pass Plate

I used one and it worked fine. I can't remember for sure but I think I took t O-ring out and put the flat rubber piece in then the plate with the O-ring on top. I am leaving it in place until I de-winterize.

If that's what he's talking about, I think it would be just as easy to remove the filter since you have to disassemble the housing to install the plate anyway. You'll use an extra quart or so of antifreeze filling the filter housing, but RV antifreeze is relatively inexpensive.
