Question Winterization System

Hello fellow coachers. Just got a 2006 Camelot with 11,000 miles. Live in WA and need to winterize the coach. It has a automatic winterization system and hydro hot heat system. Read book and still a bit lost. HELP. I can be reached by phone if you have time.

Thanks in advance. Mike

If you can find the brand name on the winterization valving, tank, or switch, it would help greatly. Swan Industries is one brand of automatic winterization kits for both home and RV installations.
The complete winterization kit is $599 through their Amazon store. I did not find their instruction/owners manual online though.
I have my owners manual in the MH, but I forget the brand Winnebago used in their Ultimates.
The hydro-hot system should already have anti-freeze in it, but the concentration should be checked if you are unsure.
For MY MH only, I drain the fresh water tank and lines, remove the whole house/MH water filter,drain outside shower, etc. flip the water heater bypass switch, fill the RV anti-freeze tank, then flip the winterization switch. This turns on the water pump, which draws from the RV anti-freeze tank, which fills the lines-pushing out any remaining water. The clothes washer is a separate procedure for winterizing, but is still supplied by the winterization unit.

I hope that was clear enough to make sense.

Thanks to all fellow coach owners about my post. I was able with info from this post to figure out the automatic winterize system. Found out during flush that the inlet filter to water pump was plugged with stuff that looked like snot. I will be doing a chlorine flush this spring from water tank to all fixtures. Also found out from inspection that the radiator cap on Hydro hot was leaking and that caused the liquid level to lower. Ordered new burner, diesel filter, 13 pound cap and special liquid. The service goes on which last owner did not keep up with. Again thanks to all who replied.
