How do you winterize a 2015 chaparral 390 QSMB?


At the back of the water heater ( unless you have a bypass outside in the compartment with the sewer and city water )there should be 3 valves, the one on the vertical line leave open and close the 2 leading into the heater. That will bypass your heater. Then connect your antifreeze hose (garden hose ) to the city connect. Using a water pump ( just like the one in your unit) have someone plug it in ( suction hose in the antifreeze of course) open one at a time each faucet hot and then cold till you see the pink running. It may take a couple gallons so get a 5 gal jug. Don't forget to remove the water filter under the sink.

No manual for Keystone Cougar 2013 330RBK ~ not sure how to winterize.


There should be plugs underneath the camper to drain the water tanks. Remove them and let the water drain. There should also be a plug on the water heater, remove and let water drain. There is also a bypass valve on the water heater to divert water away from the heater, turn this to bypass. After the water has drained replace the plugs except the water heater plug. The heater plug can stay out. Fill fresh water tank with RV antifreeze, usually about 3 gallons or maybe a little more for larger RVs. Run pump opening faucets one by one till water is forced out and the antifreeze flows including toilet. When antifreeze is flowing out the faucets close faucets and shut off pump. When pump is shut off open faucets, the antifreeze may get slushy in very cold conditions but wont freeze and a little may drip out of the faucets. The water heater may still have a small amount of water in it but shouldn't be a problem if you leave the plug out. Make sure the blackwater and greywater tanks are empty, you can dump a little antifreeze down the drains and toilet to make sure the sink traps are free from water and the blackwater tank has antifreeze in it. Other than that just shut the propane tanks off and youre done. Try to leave a couple of windows cracked slightly to promote airflow and reduce condensation inside the camper

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.

I have a keystone springdale 311ressr. My water pump is under the carpeted step by the bedside stand. There is no access panel that I can find. How do I get to it to winterize?


Drain the supply tank (or run the pump until it sucks air) then pour a little RV potable antifreeze into the supply tank, open each faucet/outlet -- one at a time -- and run the pump until antifreeze appears at that faucet, close it and go to another one until all are running antifreeze - they color it to make this easy. All piping and pump and tank is now full of antifreeze and protected. In the spring put a little fresh water with a dose of chlorine bleach in the tank, run that through all outlets, fill tank with clean water and run that until you can't smell chlorine. System is clean and ready for use.

How to winterize


ok, been a while so lets ee if I can get this all down.

1 - Drain water from your holding tank and remove drain plug in hot water heater. Drain holding tanks ( Waste )
2- turn on bypass for hot water heater ( instruction if needed )
3 - Get yourself some winterizing fluid ( can't remember exact name ) from your local Dealer . 2 or 3 gallons should be good
4- Poor this fluid into your water rez tank. All of it
5 - now go around to EVERY tap in your trailer ( one at a time ) and turn on cold water until water runs pink ( or what ever colour fluid you bought ) Close faucet them do the same for hot water tap. Repeat this at every faucet. Even the ones outside if you have any.
6 Don't forget to flush toilet in water runs pink.
7. Ensure all gas vales have been turned off ( tank vales included )

If you did everything right you should be good to go.

Plz double this list to make sure I covered everything

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.

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.
