No way Unless you are doing it to the supply lines and I can be under the faucets to catch what comes out.

Now that's even MORE expensive than the RV anti-freeze. And just as drinkable.

Just curious, what does RV antifreeze taste like and would you mix it with the JD or drink both straight? If straight may I recommend using the JD as the chaser

I would describe RV antifreeze as "acrid peppermint with an artificial sweeter-like bitter aftertaste."

JD is more like "Burning liquid charcoal with a hint of sawdust."

Again, in my opinion, neither is fit for human consumption.

Mike, you get an "atta boy" for going out and tasting it. (I would've done the same, but am at work). Now, was that straight up, or on the rocks???

It might depend on where you live and what wiper fluid you buy. I see it frozen around here. Had a bottle freeze in my garage last winter.

I just cannot risk it. I have noticed there are two versions of the blue stuff. a summer version and a cold weather version. I do not drive my TV a lot, but at the beginning of winter what is in the tank freezes. Once it warms up, I have to run it out and add the good winter stuff.

In a pinch I would use it. Another option that was done well before antifreeze was invented was a high concentration of salt in water.

anyone want to follow my suggestion for the water lines? I would use Rain-X washer fluid in the Ptraps.

That's why they have low point drains.

Sorry, I was recalling the taste of each from memory. The taste of RV antifreeze was from wiping my nose and lips after not realizing my hands were contaminated. The JD (neat) I actually paid for at a bar in 1983.

I have also accidently 'tasted', gasoline, two-stroke mix, diesel fuel, SWMBO's perfume, several brands of grease and oil, grinding dust and saw dust. I also don't recommend any of them either. Although SWMBO is quite tasty without the perfume.
