Winterizing my Coachman Concord?

We'll folks, I really don't know where to post this, because their is not a Coachman Concord rv forum. I bought a Coachman Concord 300 (2009) this past spring. In a couple of months it will be time to get it ready for winter. I would like to hear from someone who owns one, and all the detailed steps in getting it ready for winter. My manual is not very helpful, to say the least! Thanks for any help.

Winterizing my Coachman Concord?

Well,
We don't have one but,

Drain the water out of your coach. Empty freshwater tank, empty the water heater and set it's bypass valve(s), open the low point drain(s), and open all faucets to get as much water out. Also, drain your waste tanks.

Some use air pressure to blow water out of the lines and that seems to be enough for milder climates.

But, I live in Northern Michigan, so ...

Then close all of your faucets.

Are the valves in the wet bay area labelled? Often they can be set for winterizing. We had a Coachmen class c and it had a fitting to hook up a hose to suck up antifreeze (pink) out of a container. If not there is a fitting you can buy. Turn on your water pump and start filling the lines with antifreeze.

Then one by one, turn on each faucet until you get pink antifreeze flowing out of each one for a few seconds. Don't forget the sink sprayer and outside faucet. If you had quite a bit of clear water flow out before the antifreeze, drain your grey water tank again.

If you need you can pour some more antifreeze down the sinks to fill the p traps and put some in the gray water tank too. And, the shower. And, dump some down the toilet to get some antifreeze in the black water tank.

It is pretty straightforward. You'll get the hang of it after you do it.

For the first time you might ask someone to show you how.

Valves

This is a photo of my water control valves. The hose hookup on the right, is that used for suction of antifreeze? I guess the valves would have to be in the system use position for using the suction port?

Looks like both valve handles need to be pointing up. The plastic plug at the center is probably where you hook up the suction hose. I made such a hose for our rv. No too hard to do.

Good luck.
