How much antifreeze?

Going to try winterizing myself this winter (wish me luck!) and am trying to find out how much antifreeze Iím going to need. I have a 2012 Eagle HT Superlite 26.5. Thanks for the assist.

O' yea Welcome from Georgia. Wondered why you were talking about winterizing when it's still in the 90's but did not see you where from Alaska.

I can get by with just over a gallon but here in south Texas (the “Other” big state I’ve been told) 25F is a brutal freeze.
If you have washer-dryer connections be sure to address them and don’t forget the tanks, HW tank and P-traps. Ask yourself “where can I find water.”
You guys are so far north I’ll bet you can easily see Santa as he is climbing for altitude on his way to the lower 48. ��
If your local RV service folks are friendly (and competent) maybe you could ask what their punch list is.

Thanks for the reply. We’re located 150 miles south of the Arctic Circle here in Fairbanks & we require the -100* RV antifreeze.

If its that cold why not just blow out the lines and skip the antifreeze ?
