Pink stuff Question

Hi All
We are planing a long trip in freeing temps, is there any problem (pump Etc.) in putting 5-10 gl of pink stuff in the fresh water tank to use the toilet on the trip, we never use FWT for drinking or cooking, take gl jugs of street water from home, our body system is accustomed to

I would think that mixing potable antifreeze for freeze protection is fine. My concern would be how much to add for desired protection. I suppose you could try a ratio experiment and weigh up the material to calculate specific gravity to determine its given freeze point.

You could certainly do what you are proposing. Another way would be to just have the RV antifreeze in the bathroom and pour it into the toilet when you flush. Probably use less of the expensive pink stuff that way.

Are you going to live in the unit during the trip? I'm wondering where the "gl jugs of street water from home" are going to go? If you let it go down the drains, it will freeze unless you keep heat in the unit. Dumping the tanks could be a problem also if the dirty waters freeze. I guess a lot depends on weather you heat the unit during the trip, how cold you are expecting, and is the unit built to withstand winter time use.
