– Preparing Your RV for Storage
                           You’ve had a great year in your RV and now it’s time to store it for winter.
                           Follow the guide below to properly winterize and prepare your RV for long
                           or short term storage.

                           Use Freeze Ban (#30767) antifreeze for the winterization of your RV.
                           It is safe for fresh water plumbing.

                           Step-by-Step Guide to Winterizing Your RV.
                           The following are general suggestions. Read your owner's manual for winterization
                           methods specific to your RV.


                           1 Disconnect the outside water source. DO NOT DRAIN THE WATER
                              HEATER until after you have filled your pipes with antifreeze.

                           2 By-pass your water heater. See page 3, By Passing the Water Heater and
                              follow all steps before continuing. By-pass any under-sink water filtration
                              systems.

                           3 Open the petcock to drain as much water from your pipes as possible.
                              Open the water taps and flush the toilet to drain any remaining water from
                              the system.

                           4 After draining as much water as possible, it is recommended a Blow Out
                              Plug (#36153) be attached to the Water Intake Fitting. Apply air pressure
                              from an air compressor to drain the remaining water. Although blowing
                              out the remaining water is not required, the remaining water will dilute
                              your antifreeze. Close all faucets and petcock when complete.

                                                         Blow Out Plug
                                                                                       W

                              (#36003). Be sure to check your progress by opening up one
                              faucet at a time, starting from the highest and working
                              to the lowest point in the fresh water
                              system. Begin with the kitchen faucet.
                              Open the HOT side of the kitchen
                              faucet ONLY. Pump antifreeze until flow
                              from the faucet becomes very pink. This will
                              indicate that all water has been flushed from your system.
                              Close faucet. Repeat on COLD side. Continue to the next lower
                              fixture. This is normally the bathroom sink, then the shower and
                              finally the toilet.

                           6 Pour at least 2 pints of antifreeze into all sink & shower drains. The

    By-Passing Your Water Heater
    How RV Water Systems Work
    Your RV’s water system draws water either from your fresh water tank and/or from
    the city water hookup. From the fresh water tank, a water pump is used to push
    water through the RV. (No pump is needed for water coming from the city hookup.)
    The water from the water tank and city water hookup will always be cold. To get hot
    water, the water must flow from your water pump into your water heater. The water
    is then heated and flows to your hot water fixtures such as your sinks and shower.
    When winterizing your RV you will need to by-pass the water heater.                           hot line
