I'll be using the air method to winterize mine. Did the same thing with my TT I had. I just wrap electrical tape around the end of a blow fitting and hold it into the city water inlet after running the water pump dry. Open each tap inside while blowing air in. Then I dump anti-freeze down each drain and some down the toilet to get it into the black tank. I don't have a res fridge though. Mine is a '14 361REQS.

If you have a Frigidaire refer they sell a "by-pass" cartridge on their website so you won't ruin a good filter while winterizing. Also, if your unit has a filter on the city water inlet you might not need the filter in the fridge. Just leave the "by-pass" in so you can flow water to the ice maker.

Thank you so much for sharing Fingerlakes. This is kind of upsetting though at the same time. I only used my North Point on 4 trips before having to winterize it. For those 4 trips I made ZERO ice cubes with my Frigidaire Fridge and ran NO water through the filter.

When I went to have it winterized at my dealer, I went through it with the tech. He didn't know about the bypass of course.

Why isn't Jayco sending this out with the new units? I think a call may in order to them to check on these bypass units.

For your washer, here's what I do. With the winterizing hose in the jug of AF, pump on, I turn the washer on with the water temps, set to warm. I wait until I see the AF in the detergent dispenser and then give that 5 seconds or so. That means the water lines now have AF in them. I pour several cups of AF in the drum of the washer then set it to the spin cycle. This now puts AF in the pump and drain line. Then lastly I pour another few cups again into the drum and leave it there.

Winterizing 2015 pinnacle

So to clarify, if I use antifreeze method per manufacturers instructions, I don't need to use the air method first correct? It is somewhat confusing in my 2015-2016 Seismic manual (similar to Pinnacle and NP). Seems like a waste of time as long as you go through the draining process first and then do the antifreeze process. I will probably blow out the black tank flushers though.
