Just reduce the concentration and flush it out a few times.

I need help...

We had the dealer winterize our 2015 267bhsw (they did it for free), and now I'm trying to research how to dewinterize it. People keep talking about putting the hot water heater drain plug back on though, and I'm not sure if that should still be on or if they would have taken it off and put it someplace. Trailer is in storage, but I want to dewinterize tomorrow... should I expect to see it on already?

Thanks!!

If its winterized now, you should only have to hook up to a water line at your inlet and run water through all your spigots. That will clean out the anti freeze solution. Then you need to open your hot water heater valves to the open position and close the hot water bypass valve so water flows through the hot water heater. There are many you tube videos available to show you how to do this. Your manual should also have some pictures and directions.

Thanks!! I've researched that part, and I feel pretty comfortable with that. I'm just confused about the hot water heater drain plug- in one video online (with another brand of trailer) there was even a long pipe-looking thing he put in but others just refer to the cap. I'll just have to check it once I pick up the trailer tomorrow to make sure it's on there. :-)

Thanks so much for the reply!!

Different people do it different ways - I take the plug all the way out, leave it out and usually leave in in the bottom of the water heater (So I don't have to remember what I did with it ;-)).
Others put it back in once the tank is completely drained to keep bugs and other creepy crawly things from getting in the tank.
Some may only put it in hand tight - so even if you see it there, check it.
