As long as 'pink' doesn't get in the fresh tank and hot water heater plus flush well in the spring, why should there be any nasty after taste? Yeah, I've had that 'misfortune' but no longer since I'm adding pink after both tanks and am running many gallons of water through the system in the spring along with doing a fresh tank sanitizing (more gallons of water).

Dang, this is a protection for a multi thousand dollar leisure time investment if your area has sustained below freezing temps. Why so emotional? Just blow it out if that works for you. Drain and then install RV antifreeze if that is your thing. If you feel you need a belt and suspenders, blow out then add the 'pink' stuff (my way)

Ice makers,clothes washer and aqua hot require some extra care . On those items
It is prudent to read and follow directions.
My method ? I'm a belt and suspenders guy. Blowing out the lines only takes 5 min and then when rv antifreeze shows up at a faucet I know ther is no water left behind. Takes less antifreeze too.

I agree
IMO the only correct way to winterize is whatever works for you.
As I said in an earlier post....what works for me is to simply GRAVITY DRAIN EVERTHING in my fresh water system.
BTW, That's not my recommendation...just what I do.

I have not "blown it out", (or "used RV antifreeze" in), my fresh water system for all 18 years of sub-zero winter storage.
