Remove the screen/washer at the city valve and you see a small stem in center of valve, that's the plunger (check valve ) . Use a pair of needle-nose pliers if necessary to push it in ( it should have spring behind it) slightly and make sure it is centered in the hole, then just pull on it slightly to seat it. Now try pump. If it won't seat properly and water still shoots out, it's probably defective and needs changing. Perhaps whoever winterized it forgot to push that in after pumping antifreeze through system, which results in water trapped in valve, thus freezes and breaks apart inside. If your stuck, screw a plug the right size into the city water fitting. Short piece of old garden hose with male end & plug (old bolt or anything proper diameter) and small hose clamp in other end will work for temporary use even.

How do I winterize. My 5th wheel does not have the hose to pump antifreeze like my old camper did


For years I used a yard hose - connected to the motorhome and filled the hose with RV antifreeze. Pressurized the hose with a compressor and an adapter on the other end of the hose. All that is left to do is open the faucets and wait for the pink antifreeze to come out - do not forget to bypass the water heater - you should
also flush the toilet. This simulates the same supply as the city water hookup. The water pump can also be used to circulate the
antifreeze but hoses need to be hook up to syphon the liquid out of the gallon container.

How do I winterize my 2015 Jayco Jay Flight 32 RLs


Go to an RV parts store for a winterizing bypass kit for the water heater. Use POTABLE RV antifreeze and follow the instructions on the bottle. Drain all the water out of the water tank. Install the bypass kit on the water heater if it doesn't already have one. Put the water heater in the bypass mode. Add the antifreeze to the water tank. Open every water faucet including the shower head one at a time until antifreeze is present. Do this for hot and cold on every faucet. Once that is done, turn off the water pump and open all the faucets. That's all there is to it. Rember... DO NOT use automotive antifreeze. It will kill you.

First time owner. Have tankless water heater. How do I de-winterize the RV?


De winterizing is easy. They use a pink antifreeze which is food grade. Make surer the water heater is not by-passed. This is sometimes done using furnished bypass valves so that less antifreeze is needed. You can flip the water heater pressure release after connecting to city water. Water will come out if it is full. Do NOT turn on the water heater until you are certain the tank is full of water so as not to burn out the element. (This is true every time you set up) Run all faucets until you no longer see pink and you are de winterized.

Any more they could be in numerous places but look for a brown cover/door usually. Look low, such as under fridge, under bench seats, as well as on wall in bathroom, bedrooms etc.

Can't get water to come into my TT


The check valve should not be removed from the housing. You would have to remove the actual entire city water connection to gain access to the water line connection behind the water fill. The check valve must be there to prevent water from being pumped out of the fresh water tank should you be utilizing the demand pump. Before you go through all of that hassle. Remove the aerator from the kitchen sink and turn on the faucet to check the water flow. I have seen the aerators clog up and stop all water flow. When you remove the aerator disassemble and you will notice a small white disc with a tiny hole in the center. Pop this disc out and discard. Reassemble the aerator and reinstall. Also, if you are using a pressure regulator by pass it to see if water flow is restored. Those can fail as well.

How do you de-winterize 28DSBH


Connect the trailer to the city water supply, turn on the water and open each faucet until clean clear water is present. Don't forget the toilet and outside shower if equipped. Next reinstall the anode rod (suburban) or drain plug (atwood) into the water heater. Go to the back side of the water heater and close the valve on the pipe that connects the cold (bottom line into water heater) and hot (upper line out of the water heater) and then open the bottom cold water line valve and, if equipped, the upper hot water valve. This will fill the water heater. Open the hot water valve at the kitchen faucet. When the water flow is steady the water heater is full and ready for use. If the unit is equipped with a water filer, after all is flushed out, turn the water off and remove the filter housing. Install a new filter and re-secure the housing and turn the water back on. If you are using the fresh water pump, it is possible that the winterizing valve for the pump was left open. If so, close that valve which will divert the pump back to drawing from the tank.

When hook up city water to rv it shoots out vent


It is likely one of two things, either your RV has a waterline to your fresh water tank that allows you to fill that tank when you are hooked to City water, or the check valve on your water pump is bad and it is allowing city water to fill your fresh water tank. Make sure your freshwater tank is empty, have someone turn the city water on while you watch the freshwater tank... you should be able to see where it is filling from....if it is filling from the water line that run to the water pump, the check valve is bad, if it is filling from a city water fill line, locate the valve on that line and close it. If it is indeed the water pump check valve...you can either replace the pump, or add a cheap inline check valve, like a sharkbite check valve.. they run like 12 to 15 dollars.. install in seconds....you just cut the pex pipe then shove the ends into each end of the check valve.

Cannot find the water pump to winterize 2010 Forest River Sierra. I can hear it running but am unable to locate it. The bypass valves are in the correct winterize position but the antifreeze will not go in...


You don't need to find the water pump. Make sure your water tank is empty before adding RV winterizer to the water tank. Run each faucet in the RV with bypass valve NOT in winterize position until you see the antifreeze begin to come out of the faucet. Do this for both cold and hot water side for each faucet. Then move bypass valve to winterize position and run for a few seconds.
