There is a valve on your hot water heater to bypass the heater itself. In essence, you are removing it from the plumbing circuit. When you winterize, you bypass the heater so you can drain it completely and the antifreeze fills the lines coming and going to it.

You can't blame Nambarc; he's abroad right now. Besides, how can he use a Kleenex with a finger up his nose?

All seriousness aside, I'm glad there wan't any damage done.

I'm a bit overwhelmed with all that needs to be done to get our TT ready. Is the winterizing, dewinterizing, dumping, etc...as difficult as it sounds? How much bleach should be added to fresh water tank? Maybe we should of just stuck with the tent!

It all sounds tougher then it is. The bleach ratio is 1/4 cup of bleach per 15 gallons of tank capacity. Completely fill the tank with water. Let soak for at least four hours per Jayco`s manual. If a faster sanitizing is needed double the bleach amount. I`m thinking of starting a new thread on dewinterizing to discuss the ins and outs. The link in post 17 covers quite a bit on the subject.
