I fabricated a jumper hose to go from the outside shower to the city water inlet and the black tank flusher. no more fiddling around poking something in the relief valve on the city water inlet.

First, I installed a Tee to allow me to connect the antifreeze to the pump. I use antifreeze as it is best for up here.

That went well, after I waited till the fresh water tank drained.


Uh, no, that is never the best. I don't care if the weather where you winter hits -40 (F or C) or colder Antifreeze is never the best.

AIR is the best. IF the air ever freezes trust me when I say you WILL NOT be worried about your RV (though this is intended to be a bit funny. the fact is not for if air freezes...You will also not be alive).


Home is where I park it.

My pump won't draw pink pop from the bottle. I've been blowing it out with compressed air.

Is thare some sort of pump I could attach to the city water and pump it in that way?

Here in the north, where we get -40C temps, all the trailer shops recommend antifreeze. In fact, if you buy new and don't use antifreeze and have a pipe burst, your warranty is void.
