As you say, it is already cheap. Why risk it?
agree. at $2.50 a gallon how cheap can you get? But if saving $.050 per year is worth the risk. Go for it.


How did it get to this? Yes......I agree. Go for it.

Hmmm... to save weight in my class B I buy the “concentrate” from Wally World. Comes in a gallon jug and I just fill the gallon jug with roughly 3 quarts of water and use it. If I added more water I’d overflow the gallon jug! [emoticon]

So, after all this - is there something I can use in the grey/black tanks that will take some amount of water/dilution and not freeze? I'm thinking, leving northern NY in 0-20 deg. weather and heading south. Just beable to use the bathroom for washing, etc. till we get a day to the south.
BTW - I winterize by draining everything and adding pink stuff to the system.


We leave upstate NY the first week of January and make several interim stops on the way to Florida. We've never had a problem using the waste tanks even in temps down to -4℉.

Just bring along 2-3 extra gallons of rv antifreeze and use that to flush until you get south far enough.
