RE: How much did I mess up?

Ok, total rookie mistake, and I should have thought about it prior to doing it. But how much did I mess up??? I asked a fellow RV'er friend of mine about winterizing my TT with anti freeze. He said, "piece of cake", just pour the antifreeze into your water tank and turn on the faucets till they run pink. So dumb-ass me goes and pours 5 gallons of antifreeze into my freshwater tank. After my first gallon I thought to myself, "self, this is a really stupid idea. I am contaminating my freshwater tank" So with the damage being done, after the first gallon was in, I pressed on and put in the other 4 gallons, thinking what's done is done. I ran the lines until they poured pink. My question is, just how screwed am I? Will I be able to flush 5 gallons or antifreeze out of my freshwater tank in the spring? Will I be able to drink out of my camper again? Do I fess up to my dealer/mechanic that I did this? Thoughts? Suggestions?? Bullets for my skull??? ...after I told my friend that I did this, he turns and says that he simply blows air thru his lines to get the water out...nice.I Have done this in the past, It should be fine.. Just flush good and sanitize as advised per other members..

RE: No lights and we are camping. Need help

I think the OP is MIA. Give him a break maybe he is working on all the tips that you guys told him to check on. I am sure he will return with an answer of what was wrong. Perhaps?:)

RE: What Iam doing wrong??

you can do this by removing the hose off the pump , until you by a water pump by-pass kit. winterizing ...read step 4 . this is the way I used to do it before, but I thought I would make it easier by installing a kit this year. But things did not workout like I planed this year.

RE: What Iam doing wrong??

Is the "bypass knob" for bypassing the freshwater tank, or to bypass just the water heater? Mine only bypasses the water heater. You might have to install another knob / water line to go around the fresh water tank. Water tank.

RE: What Iam doing wrong??

Are you sure you installed this pump siphon kit on the input side of the pump and that the valve is installed with flow in the correct direction, as usually indicated by an arrow on the valve itself? SoundGuy, now you got me double thinking. I may have to take a look at this next spring.. Thank you for that question.

What Iam doing wrong??

I recently bought a pump converter winterizer kit for our P/T up in Michigan. I first realized that I installed it wrong because the when I place the hose inside the antifreeze bottle and turn on the by pass knob it was spelling out of the bottle. So I placed the kit on the back of the pump where the fresh water tank hose meets the pump. Well, I can NOT get the antifreeze to go thru the lines with out going to the fresh water tank first. And this happens only when I turn on the faucet. What am I doing wrong? Thank you in advance to all. No pictures do to the fact the unit it's in Michigan and I had no choice but to use whatever antifreeze was in the tank to winterize the unit. :S

Sad day >>>

Just got back from our last camping trip for the season. Cleaned & Winterized the T.T. for the season. Now have to take a final trip this weekend for the day up to Michigan & also winterize the P/T there this is also going to be very sad since we go there every weekend from early spring until mid October. To me, this is depression time.. :(

RE: White powder ??

We too just had this issue for the first time since owning our TT. The spots were localized to the center of the camper, down low mostly and all near the kitchen. We clean it really good each time before storing. There was not a ton of it, but just enough to cause concern. We cleaned it up with bleach and water, wiped everything in the camper down with a weak solution just to be sure. I think here in NC since we've had the hottest and most consistently high humidity summer I can remember that it caused this to happen. There was no musty smell at all. dlos , Our T.T. started having this issue for the past 2 summers, but we notice more this year since it's been a very wet summer in Michigan. And having a very wooded parcel does not help in drying things out.

RE: White powder ??

Are you sure it hasn't been used as a mobile meth lab? Have you seen Breaking Bad? Just kidding. It sounds like white mold or mildew. You can't really tell without testing. They are treated the same and have the same cause. High humidity and no air flow. Put a dehumidifier in your tub while you are away. Loved the series..lol
