American Eagle winterize
 
In the bay there are 2 ports : city water and winterize ...I can put antifreeze using the city water port, but not trough the winterize port like it says in the instructions.....it looks like there is a valve is closed , but there's no visible valve to open ....
thanks

Most likely that is a 2-way valve. One way it will take in the antifreeze and the other way it will take fresh tank or city water.

Could be you have to put a hose on the Antifreze port and in a jug, open the valve, and take in antifreeze when the pump runs.

I tried today and no luck -I winterized it trough the city port ....I hope it will do the job...

I am having the same problem with my Tradition. No visible valve to turn to make it suck from the winterize port. Did you get it to pull the antifreeze thru the city port?

The 2 valves are under the left side panel cover where the water pump is. Found them this morning. Got mine winterized thank goodness. Suppose to be in the 20's in North Georgia next week.

My handles look like this. One makes the pump pull from the winterization port and the other cuts off water coming from the fresh tank.

When I blew my lines out with air, the pump strainer blew in half. That's why it would never pull from the fresh tank.
