It wasn't like last year, but I still got out and did some kayaking on Georgian Bay. We also bought a lot more wood. Even though it was cooler, the family had a great time! The heated bed mats and furnace came in handy.

We bought a 23b this year and it took 25 minutes to winterized myself and this is our first camper. The setup is simple.

I just picked up our X23B and I am planning to winterize this weekend. How much antifreeze does it take to fill all lines, traps, etc.?

I got a 9.46L jug from Home Depot for less than $10. It was more than enough. I just stored the rest in the trailer.

I blow out the lines first and used less than 1 gallon.

Hey Killbear Camper - Can you tell me how to remove the water filter under the fridge? I have no tube that was provided. I've removed the end that the input hose connects to, but don't know how to remove the filter from the pump. If I don't have the needed bypass tube, what happens if I winterize without taking the filter out? Thanks for any help.

This may be bad form, since I've posted this on another thread, but I'd like to finish my winterizing on my 23b, but I need some help. I'm in the middle of winterizing for the first time, and I've read I need to remove the water filter. I think I know where it is and what it looks like - near the pump and looks like a clear cylinder with mesh inside - but I don't know for sure. How do I remove this? Do I just remove the clear part, or the whole part that is inline with the tube? Also, if I take this out before I pump in the antifreeze, won't it just leak out there? I've read I need to put a tube in there, but I don't see a tube to replace that. Can you help this newbie?

Here's a picture of what I think is the water filter - I removed it from the line, but don't know how to remove it from the pump: [ATTACH][/ATTACH]

I just unscrewed the clear portion, rinsed out the screen and put it all back together for next year.
