Just found a cracked plastic fitting that I never thought about because I haven't used the FW holding tank this year. It's the fitting that's at the bottom of the tank right next to the low drain fitting. If you don't blow it out when you drain the tank it's going to have water in it over the winter( at least mine did). I never thought of blowing that one out.
The fitting on the right goes to the pump and as you can see it's lower than the tank.

I've never had a camper with a "low point drain" before. What do I do different in winterizing this rig? It also has 3 holding tanks, 2 grey and 1 black.

Going to have the dealer do it for the first couple of years while the TT is in to address warranty issues, but will do it myself after that.

Winterizing where I live is pretty simple, drain water tank, holding tanks, drain water heater. Run pump to clear out. Pour pink into drains. Done.
But....my previous RV had to be returned to the factory in Indiana in December for total wall replacement under warranty. I found out to late it gets cold there. All my water facuets froze and busted including the one in the shower. Never knew it until we were sit up in Port A in March.
Now I do the blow out with air thing as well.

You would open all the low point drains and faucets allowing the water to drain out, and do not forget the water heater. Then winterize accordingly, see instructions on post one.

.. and don't forget to close the low point drains before adding anti-freeze

Yes I did just that one time and before I realized it had lost about 1/2 a gallon of the pink stuff out the rear low point drains.
