I recently purchased a 2007 Keystone Hornet 28bhds. It was winterized, but now I need to empty out the tank to put in fresh water. Where's the drain?


Typically, when your unit is winterized, the tanks and hot water are emptied; at least they should have been. What you need to do is connect a hose like you would to use fresh water and open the valve. Then go to reach faucet in your unit and open them, one at a time until the pink fluid goes clear and then wait another 10-15 seconds before closing. Once all faucets, shower and toilet have been purged of anti freeze, Make Sure the bypass on the hot water heater is opened to let water fill the tank before you turn on the power, for electric, to prevent burning up the heating element. Once all is done, you should be able to do the valve to have water directed into your fresh water tank. For future reference, the drain hose will be at a low point, under the belly with a valve. If the lever is online with the drain hose/tube, the line is open. Make sure the lever is perpendicular (90 degrees) to the line to be closed so you can fill the fresh water tank.

Water system diagram


normally will have tubes sticking from the underbelly of the vehicle. they may be red and blue for hot and cold, or they may be clear. the caps are either off white or black. those lines are for draining the whole system. somewhere close to those lines is another line by itself with normally a valve. that should be your drain for the fresh water tank.

What is the best way to winterize this trailer


winterizing rv's and boats and big pools/fountains is what im very busy doing this time of year , so first let me say there are companys out there that's all they do ! look in your yellow pages 4 them \

now some of the services they preform are , drain and flush out all the black and grey water tanks/lines , flush and refill with foodsafe antifreeze the fresh water tanks , using this same liquid purge all the piping to all the water fixtures including toilets , add a rubber protectant to the tires (if has any) regrease and ck all wheel bearings / and wheel brakes if it has any , disconnect and seal all gas pipes from fuel tanks , boats need to have there oil changed and there engines anti freeze topped off , rv's /boats need to have there generators oil changed and there antifreeze topped off/replaced , all food needs to be removed from storage bays (even under seats) and last but not least a seal of some kind needs to be applied to entire outside to prevent animal/pest /water/ice intrusion we use polyester plastic as it can be heat shrinked to fit tight

Need to know steps to winterize a 2001 Thor-Citation 23-R trailer. Or schematics of key points to address.


If you don't have a hot water heater winterizing bypass kit installed,get one before going any further.
Next, drain the water out of the hot water tank. Add POTABLE (not automotive) anti freeze to the water system Run run faucets one at a time both hot and cold, toilet and shower head until you see the anti freeze . Next, shut off the water pump and open the faucets. This saves any chance of cracked water lines. When you want to use the trailer again, close the bypass valves on the hot eater tank and run the pump long enough to remove the antifreeze solution from the system. Fill the water tank and run the faucets for a few minutes. Potable antifreeze won't make you sick so there's no worry if you don't get it all out of the system.

How do I winterize a 2013, nomad joey select, 207


Assuming you mean you're going to park it for the winter ????
Start by draining all the water tanks, i.e., fresh water, grey water, black water. Go inside and open all the faucets - if you have one or more where it's a common lever type valve and you swing it left or right depending on desired water temperature, then set it for the middle and turn it full on - leave all faucets turned on - shower included. This will allow the water lines to drain out. DO NOT TURN OFF the faucets - leave them on. Don't forget the toilet tank. If there is still some water left in the bottom of the toilet, pour in a cup of standard automotive antifreeze (ethelyne glycol type) and then CLOSE THE LID of the toilet. Ditto this (antifreeze) for all of your drains. Pour 1 cup of (full strength) liquid antifreeze into all drains (sink drains, shower drain, etc) Finally, make a sign that says "WINTERIZED - PLEASE DO NOT USE" and then TAPE THIS onto the toilet lid.

My hot water tanks turns on but no hot water. Their is a lot of air in the line


Double check that by-pass valves are in proper position, as well as any winterizing valve is in the off position. Some units have a winterizing valve and hose to put in jug for winterizing, that needs to be shut off otherwise it will suck air. Back of water heater- lower fitting is for cold water in, valve should be open, and top fitting is for hot out, which should be open as well. Any valves that may be in between those 2 lines such as a "t" between lines should be in off position. Keep in mind, water heater has to fill first before any good pressure will come out taps. I normally open bathtub hot tap because it\'s less mess and let it run until i get good steady flow from faucette, then do the rest, hot cold.

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.
