Had to work on my water heater leaks again. Finally figured out the problem was that the plastic fittings that screw into the tank are NOT made with tapered pipe threads. The threads are compression fitting threads, and without the taper, they don't seal well.

I pulled the fittings out, cleaned them up, and wrapped them with a lot of teflon tape. They went back in a lot tighter this time, so I'm hoping they won't leak again.

Opened up to check the inside to ensure no rodents, leaks/moisture or saggy roof from snow. Happy to report all was good except the winter antifreeze I left in the toilet to cover the seal was slushy...I kind of thought it should remain liquid no? 17F/-8C out today but has been as low as -18F/-28 in the last few days.

RV antifreeze will not freeze but will turn slushy. Not to worry.

Thanks Norty1, I suspected that was the case but this is the first HTT I own with a toilet where I'd actually see the antifreeze. My previous unit was a PUP and thus I only had to worry about sink, freshwater tank and water pump, none of which I would see when stored for winter.

Looked at a sad jayco bird on the side of my TT as I backed out of the house driveway for work this AM.

From what I understand, RV AF will freeze, but does not expand like water, this expansion is what causes all the problems.
