another winterizing question

'16 38 FLSA. Don't have the washer/dryer setup in the bedroom. But, is the plumbing there? I know I have the back grey tank, but is there any supply lines to winterize, or is this added when the washer/dryer prep would be done?

Personally, I would call Jayco with your Vin number and ask for the plumbing diagram. Not worth the risk.

They are in there. You will need to drain the low point drains for these lines. Since you don't have a W/D after you winterize and drain these lines, leave them closed for future until you get the W/D units.

My 16 North Point has a closet in the bedroom for a washer and dryer. There is no outlet nearby and no indication of plumbing. The documentation does not mention any additional plumbing or low point drains. The dealer doesn't have a clue. It is so frustrating not being able to get answers. I shouldn't have to contact the manufacturer every time to find out something that should either be in the documentation or have been explained to me by the dealer.

If you do NOT have a Washer installed then no water has been run that way.

I notice the low point drain on the rear of the coach. I hope we have a few more weeks until we have to winterize, just not sure of the plumbing schematic on cutoff valves if no washer is installed.

There are fittings in the wall and there is water in there. Low points drain these and it works 100% if you open the black valves on the end of the lines in the wall behind the access panel. If you do not then when you do the low points make sure you open all the faucets to allow air into the system. The lines will drain, but need time to "burp" and get the air into them.

There is nothing further to do on the drain as it is dry and capped.

Warning. On my 2011 Eagle 365 BHS the dealer ran water through the WD hook up to make sure it worked on PDI. I wanted to kick his hind side for this.

The first time I winterized the unit I ran antifreeze through the WD lines then valved them off from the factory installed valves in the ceiling of the basement storage. Never looked back. I do think the line held antifreeze before the valves.

I plan to winterize my NorthPoint 377 next weekend. On the list is to see if there are any valves installed. I have not found any valves where the eye can see. If valves don't exist i plan to install them at lowest possible point. I will winterize though the lines Close the valves and never worry about it again. I also plan on removing the whole house filter as my friend gets really stinky water if it sits in storage for a period of time. I have a whole house filter that I used on my 365 that has garden hose connections on it that I plan to use.

I hope this helps.
