Water pump

Hey, I have a 2018 27bhs and I just winterized. Have a couple questions. So I bypass the water heater n turn both cold n hot knob to off position. Than I had to bypass the water pump line from the freshwatertank. I pump antifreeze in every faucets,shower n toilet. Next to my water pump there's a filter (clear jar) with antifreeze, is it ok to leave in there or run it till its gone? I drain both freshwater tank, any chance of water still being in there from line to tank? This is my first time winterizing, still learning

I always drain the pump guard filter, place a rag under it and unscrew the cap enough for the antifreeze to run out then retighten. Any water left in the line on mine usually drains most of it back to the tank, some in the line won't hurt.

Sounds like you did everything right except, possibly, the filter.

If your "clear jar" is just a strainer, which will be about two inches long, everything is fine. It doesn't matter if it has antifreeze or air in it--as long as it's not water.

If, however, it is a true filter, which will be about eight inches long and have a cartridge inside, you will have to replace the cartridge which will be partially plugged with pink antifreeze that it tried to filter out. I had one that I forgot to remove and it successfully removed all the pink; what came out the other end looked like clear water. I would not have trusted it to protect my lines.
