First day. Open all low point drain valves. Open all hot water heater drains. Open water tank drain valves . Turn on all faucets.
Second day. Turn on waterpump for 1 minute. Look to make sure it is not picking up any more water.(tank is completely drained) Install water pressure regulator on water inlet hose inlet line. Install air quick connect adapter to regulator. Plug in air hose to adapter. Run air through system for three minutes. Close low point drain and all faucets. Run air through Hot Water Heater for two minutes. Close bypass valve for HWH. Go to outside Ref. access. Remove water line from ice maker. Remove top water line to ice maker and drain water from line. Blow out water from lower line. push in small lower water line on ice maker solenoid and remove several times to blow out all water from ice maker solenoid valve. Open hot water side of faucet in kitchen. Let it run for 1 minute. Open and close faucet several times. Close hot water faucet and do same to cold side.
keep opening and closing faucets until you quit getting a small blast of water. Move to bathroom and repeat at sink and shower. Flush commode and hold open for 1 minute. Run washing machine through fill cycle. Go back and open all drains and faucets run air for three more minutes.
Drain both holding tanks. Add pink stuff to all sink drains. This sounds like a lot of things to do.(it is) After a few times it is quick and simple. If you winterize and never use your camper all winter, you may want to go with the pink stuff. We use ours all year and prefer not to buy that much antifreeze.
One gallon of antifreeze will last us all winter.
