RV Antifreeze Not Selling

I just got home from Home Depot. I bet they are wondering why no one is purchasing rv antifreeze this year.

I mean, who wouldn't go down the air filter/ thermostat aisle for antifreeze?

That`s one of the problems with those huge stores, I have difficulty finding things. And the prices are in some cases higher then my local hardware store.

I had trouble finding it at HD too. Was next to sump pumps.
When I seen $3.99/gal I went to Wally Mart. $3.99/gal there too.
I thought I had bought it last year for $2.99

I've never seen it stocked at an "Agent Orange" store in Florida. The Wally World next door to HD does sell it in Automotive near the windshield washer "juice"........... Think I paid $2.79 last winter for the one time I needed some to pour down the "P" traps. I blow the water lines with compressed air.

Since it's next to the furnace filters, maybe they thought it was something you put in the furnace?

While I have not bought it there ever and it's usually the local HW store. That antifreeze is commonly used in solar and home closed water heating systems which gives the homeowner the luxury of only needing to winterize the potable water systems which may be why you saw it in that isle.

I find that they cross merchandise items in many isles and you may find the same item 3x over in your travels based on how many different applications it has.
