winterizing kit

how to install a winterizing kit in a 2005 georgie boy. I have no access to the water pump, I would like to use RV intifreeze But I don't know where to put it .The manual mentioned only to blow out the water from the city water inletwith a pressurevale attachement, that is all well and good but I still want to put interfreeze in the pipes. Any help would greatly be appriciated. Thank You

Find the pump by turning it on and finding the sound of it running. It could be in the bedroom, near floor, in a cabinet. It may also, already have a winterizing valve on the coach. Don't forget to by-pass water heater as well.

RV WIZARD, is giving you good information, it has to have some sort of access as they don't last forever. My brother thought the same thing, we traced it to a little panel under a hutch. Finally if all else fails, they do sell an apparatus that will force anti-freeze back wards through the faucets to the whole system.

You can always install a kit at the fresh water tank if you have access to the hose at the bottom it that goes to the pump. That is what I did.

My pace arrow doesn't have a winterize valve either. I followed the directions and put antifreeze right into the emtpy fresh water tank. directions said 4-5 gallons, it took 9 and the pump was still sucking some air and having a hard time building pressure. I did manage to flow pink out of all faucets, icemaker and washer.

Yes, first step is to (with faucet's open and pump off) open the drain valve on the water heater and drain it out. I left it open and pumped till some pick came out, then turned the bypass valve.

Next year I'll install a winterizing valve with a suction hose for the antifreeze.

If all else fails connect an empty hose to the inlet, pour antifreeze into hose and connect air hose.Open faucet and blow antifeeeze in .Refill hose and repeat till all faucets and toilet flow pink.

If you pour antifreeze into the fresh water tank make sure first that the tank is completely empty or else you will get a diluted mixture.
